366 Massachusetts Avenue, Suite 101
Arlington MA 02474

Professional Credentials

Masters in Social Work, training in Family and Couples Therapy, EMDR Level II trained.

3rd Party Reimbursement

I accept many insurances, all PPO’s, private pay and some adjusted fee scales.

Professional Services

I treat individual adults, couples and families. I help people address life changes and stressors, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and self care, among other concerns. I consult to parents regarding parenting issues such as behavioral and emotional problems or worries regarding their children as well as coping with children with special needs or developmental delays. I also help people and their families deal with the impact of chronic or traumatic illnesses in their lives.

Unique Qualities

I provide a safe, empathic, therapeutic space where clients can make meaningful changes in their lives. Humor is allowed too! When appropriate, I integrate holistic therapy techniques with more traditional therapy approaches. These holistic, body-mind methods may include stress reduction, breath-body awareness and relaxation, guided imagery, visualization and EMDR for optimum results in helping people access their own inner wisdom and healing. If appropriate, a client’s sense of their own spirituality is acknowledged and integrated as a resource of empowerment, to sort through feelings, thoughts and behaviors that either help or hinder them in achieving their identified goals.

Professional Passion

I enjoy helping people engage in the work of personal transformation and growth. I also bring a sensitivity and appreciation for people’s own sense for the wellsprings of inner spiritual empowerment (however the individual may define this) that often contributes to this process.
