licensed mental health counselor - Boston, MA

Focused on the entirety of a person rather than isolated symptoms or clinical labels

As much as we crave to satisfy our needs, we also fear, and often sabotage, getting what we want.

In therapy, we can find a home for many longings: the nagging sense that something is missing, the yearning to experience happiness, or the desire to escape the seemingly inescapable patterns that keep us stuck. 

We cover up these longings with worries, distractions, or addictions. Ironically, even when we crave to satisfy our needs, we also fear (and even sabotage) getting what we want: whether it’s success, love, intimacy, sobriety, or purpose. 

Therapy is a place to explore these longings, to eliminate what stands in our way, and to honor what supports us.

Are we a good match?

As a licensed mental health counselor, I welcome Individual clients to explore what stands in the way of a more fulfilling life. I help couples enhance communication, address sexuality, heal after an infidelity, handle conflicts and money arguments, or decide whether to stay together or part ways.

As a former attorney, I also work with professionals looking for balance, meaning, a shift in priorities, or a new direction altogether. 

As a certified premarital counselor, I lead couples through a research-based process of preparing for a stronger marriage. 

As a financial therapist, I am passionate about healing my clients’ relationship to money and helping them uncover blocks to increased financial success.
