I am a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst with fifteen years of experience providing consultation and psychotherapy. I work with adults and adolescents on a variety of issues, ranging from an individual's emotional and relationship difficulties to a general sense of "being stuck" or dissatisfied with life. I believe it necessary to provide a reliable, empathic setting to carefully understand these difficulties, and more importanly, facilitate personal growth and transformation. I have a private practice in Harvard Square, Cambridge. Please feel free to call me for an appointment as well as any questions about my practice or myself.
I received my PhD from the University of Tennessee, and completed an internship and fellowship at the Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Health Alliance. Since then, I have completed psychoanalytic training at the Massachusetts Institute of Psychoanalysis, and offered clinical supervision for trainees at the Cambridge Hospital and Harvard Medical School
I work with adolescents, adults, and couples on a variety of issues. In addition to my interests in psychotherapy and consultation, I have done extensive work with individuals grappling with AD/HD, providing "coaching" and other interventions for AD/HD-specific issues.
