Services and philosophy
I offer therapy from an integrative perspective, using theories and techniques from psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, with Internal Family Systems providing the framework. My trauma-focused training includes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems and Expressive Arts modalities, and I have experience in supporting addiction recovery through both AA/12-Step and SMART Recovery models.
My clients describe me as caring, empathetic, smart, intuitive, direct, and honest as well as having extensive training and technical knowledge. Psychotherapy as I understand it is a collaborative process: You and I together will identify your goals and work to disentangle you from past experiences and present thoughts, freeing you to move forward with life.
I am familiar with a variety of religious/spiritual traditions as well as non-religious or humanistic world views, and my services are LGBTQA-friendly, poly-friendly, and kink-aware. As of May 1, 2018, my schedule is filled; in the future, I anticipate having some evening times available in Quincy. The Fields Corner office is permanently closed.
I take Blue Cross/Blue Shield. No other insurance is accepted; however, sliding-scale fees may be available to self-paying clients with limited income.
I look forward to meeting you! Please use the form below to contact me and schedule an appointment.
