Professional Statement

  • I am committed to helping people address symptoms and difficulties compassionately and in ways that are tailored to the individual. I will listen carefully to you and make every effort to understand your unique preferences and needs. I have expertise in both psychotherapy and medicinal treatments and I will work with you to find the treatment plan that suits you best. In addition to private practice, I worked as a clinician-researcher at the Family Center for Bipolar at Beth Israel for the past 5 years. This work gives me unique experience in treating bipolar disorder and working with families.
  • My aim in psychotherapy is to help individuals relieve painful symptoms, achieve emotional freedom, and improve interpersonal relationships. I am currently completing my training in Interpersonal Psychoanalysis at the William Alanson White Institute. I have also been trained in Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral and Supportive styles of psychotherapy.
  • I am passionate about helping people overcome barriers to achieving health-related goals, while also abiding by the Health At Every Size philosophy. I am knowledgeable about ancestral health approaches to diet and lifestyle. I also have an interest in the relationship between mental health, technology, and "geek" culture.
