As a Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist, I provide Individual Therapy, Couples Counseling, Marriage Counseling, Family Counseling, Short-Term and Long-Term Psychotherapy at my conveniently located office in Boston. I view counseling as an interactive and collaborative process that is based on your individual needs. I work with individuals suffering from symptoms of depression and anxiety as well as those struggling with relationship issues and career changes. We will work together to develop strategies to help you reduce and cope more effectively with depression, anxiety, stress, relational issues, and conflicts.
My specialty is in performance and social anxiety. I was a professional figure skater for over 10 years and have a profound understanding of the psychological and physical rigors involved in having to perform under pressure. My practice specializes in working with athletes, actors, musicians, public speakers and other business professionals who must perform under pressure and struggle with moderate to severe anxiety.
I have an eclectic theoretical approach that is strongly humanistic, client-centered and cognitive behavioral based but may also include some psychodynamic techniques. I believe one of the key factors in successful therapeutic outcomes is building a safe, trusting and respectful relationship.
