Individual Psychotherapy, Couples Counseling, and Marriage Counseling

         My office is in a private setting in Cambridge, MA, four blocks from Harvard Square and two blocks from Lesley University.  I have 31 years experience doing therapy with individuals and couples, specializing in Relational, Solution Based Therapy, General Couples and Infidelity Counseling. I also teach professionals in major training institutes in the Boston and New York City areas. Below are links to specific areas of my practice:

     I use an interactive approach in individual and couples therapy. My work is solution based with feedback about where I think you or your relationship need changing, and provide tools for you to do the necessary work. I aim to create a relaxed and safe space to focus on three main areas of work: helping individuals and couples feel better and cope with painful situations;  to understand why difficulties keep repeating, despite successes in other areas; learning how to make effective changes to improve your life and relationship. 

       I work with people from wide ranging academic, and professional fields throughout the Boston and surrounding areas. On the following pages I describe my approach to specific problems.  If you have any questions, please call to discuss if making an appointment would be appropriate for you. Regardless of what types of therapy you have tried before, or how long you have waited to begin therapy, it is my firm belief that change can occur at any stage in our lives, careers or relationships.
