in Private Practice based in Boston, MA
Hello and Welcome.
I specialize in long-term, person-centered, psychodynamic psychotherapy that is trauma-informed and culturally sensitive. My integrative approach, informed by psychoanalytic and cognitive therapy, is tailored to meet your unique needs and is based on a pace that works for you.
I am a firm believer in the transformative power of therapy. With each session, we plant the seeds of growth, nourishing them with empathy and understanding until they bloom into new insights, fresh perspectives, and a greater sense of self and connectedness to others.
How I Work
My style is warm, supportive, and easygoing. I work toward creating an engaging and comfortable environment where you can feel safe and free to explore your thoughts and emotions without any rush, judgment, or interruption throughout the session. My goal is to create a nurturing environment that empowers you to achieve your goals and find the healing and support you need.
I strive to be empathic, understanding, and patient. I focus on attentively listening to clients, paying attention to their feelings, and being attuned to their needs. I believe in the therapeutic power of fostering deep and meaningful connections with clients through heartfelt conversations. I work closely with my clients and tailor my approach to meet their unique needs and circumstances.
Like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, therapy takes time to create lasting change, as meaningful transformation often unfolds over time. Many people find that discussing problems and emotions openly leads to more effective, longer-lasting benefits. For those seeking practical tools, I've put together this summary of coping skills and strategies.
I have expertise in working with individuals who are confronting a broad range of emotional and mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem issues, self-destructive behaviors, relationship difficulties, identity crises, and existential questions.
I enjoy working with adult clients from diverse backgrounds, including students, professionals, individuals from racial minorities, LGBTQ+ communities, and those who identify as neurodivergent.
