Individual therapy for navigating your romantic relationships
Couples therapy for strengthening your partnership
I specialize in helping people who are struggling with their relationship.
Although it can be a great source of happiness, our romantic relationships can also cause significant distress. I work with my clients to help them to find, sustain, and strengthen these important connections.
I provide both individual and couples therapy in Boston, helping people deal with a range of relationships issues.
Many of my clients start therapy during a time of uncertainty.
Perhaps you are in a time of uncertainty, too. Perhaps you are in a relationship with someone you love, but don't know if you can handle the misunderstandings, frustrations, and recurring fights. You want to build a life with this person but don't know how to stop the arguments, communicate your feelings and needs, or let go of past hurts.
You desperately want things to get better but you feel like you've tried everything and still nothing has changed. At this point you're wondering if you should stay in this relationship. The idea of breaking up is disorienting and heartbreaking, but staying together seems heartbreaking, too.
Perhaps you're reaching the point of leaving your partner but aren't sure about anything- if you actually want to leave, if the relationship can be saved, or even how to get out. You know that endings lead to a period of insight and growth, where you gain deeper understanding about why the relationship didn't work and how you can have happier, healthier relationships moving forward, but you're not sure you're ready to make that leap.
Whether you want to work on improving your relationship or figuring out if you should stay or go, I'm here to help.
And remember, the most meaningful growth comes from the most challenging situations.
I work with a range of people, from those who are struggling with specific mental health issues like anxiety or depression, to those who are seeking greater life satisfaction in general. Many struggle with maintaining balance and fully enjoying their lives. My speciality is helping people navigate romance in every stage of the relationship life cycle, from dating to divorce. I utilize an eclectic approach to help individuals improve their mood, adapt to changes, establish healthier lifestyles, and strengthen their relationships.
Couples come to therapy to address a number of problems, but all have the goal of having a happier, healthier relationship. Some couples are so disconnected they barely speak while others have explosive fights. No matter the issue, therapy can help. I specialize in treating couples where one partner is anxious or uncertain about couples therapy. I have completed training in several couples therapy approaches, and tailor my work to best fit what the couple is seeking and needing.
Some people are interested in brief, educational, and skills-focused work. Individual coaching provides you with a comprehensive assessment of your relational patterns, strengths as a partner, and areas for improvement. Couples coaching involves extended sessions and time-limited but accelerated work, where you and your partner will meet once a month for 2-3 hours, and will engage in exercises between meetings in order to strengthen skills and make fast progress.
I enjoy discussing and sharing my expertise on relationships and couples therapy with a wider audience. I also speak on the benefit of company's prioritizing and supporting the health of their employee's romantic relationships. I am available for speaking engagements and have given trainings/talks on topics including how to navigate hookup culture and modern dating, skills for managing emotional flooding, and how to strengthen romantic relationships.
