Therapy Approach

At some point, we all have to deal with the effects of life’s stressors, be they at the loss of a relationship or job; a parent’s or spouse’s illness; the onset of a medical condition; conflict within a relationship; or other sudden and unwelcome changes in life’s routine. Everyone has strengths that are silenced by such stressors and I specialize in helping my clients to deal with those stressors by bringing back those strengths. I see individuals from adolescents to seniors who want to understand and/or change their feelings of anxiety and sadness. Through conversation, support, techniques of relaxation, and, at times, some humor, I help them learn to feel strong again in the face of adversity.

I have assisted a wide variety of clients ranging from parents and siblings of children with challenges; adults who lost parents or are dealing with placing parents in nursing homes, couples, blended families, high school and college students who are having a difficult time with transition, and those going through any kind of loss and anxiety. Much of my work is short term, 6-12 week sessions and critical situations (crisis intervention) which aims to restore clients to full functioning.

In addition to private practice, I have worked in medical and psychiatric hospitals and mental health settings in both clinical and administrative positions and have been an adjunct clinical instructor/field work supervisor at both Boston University and Boston College Schools of Social Work.

I bring 40 years of professional and life experience which my clients find of great help.
I also will make some home visits.
