Couples therapy for strengthening your partnership
Individual therapy for navigating your life and relationships
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Individual & Couples Therapy in Boston, MA
I specialize in helping people who are struggling with their relationships.
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 create, sustain, and strengthen these important connections.
I provide both individual and couples therapy in Boston, helping people deal with a range of relationship issues.
Many of my clients start therapy during a time of uncertainty in their relationship.
Perhaps you are in a time of uncertainty, too. Maybe you are in a relationship with someone you love, but you want to stop the misunderstandings, frustrations, and recurring fights. You want to build a life with this person but don't know how to end the arguments, communicate your feelings and needs, or let go of past hurts.
Or maybe your uncertainty is about other aspects of your life. You always feel like you're not doing enough and that you're missing out on life. You feel anxious, disconnected, and adrift.
If you want to work on improving your relationships and creating a fuller, more meaningful life, I'm here to help.
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 has anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder. I have completed training in several couples therapy approaches, and tailor my work to best fit what the couple is seeking and needing.
For those interested in proactive, time-limited, and transformative couples work, I, along with AASECT-certified sex therapist Dr. Bailey Hanek, have co-created a program called The Relationship Coaches. By combining our expertises we are able to help couples learn how to communicate effectively, learn about and navigate each other's sexual needs, solve conflicts, and address issues before they get bigger.
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.
