I have been in practice as a clinical psychologist for more than ten years. My clinical practice is focused on child and adolescent therapy and parent consultations. My work with children and teens is focused on issues such as behavior problems, oppositionality, strained family dynamics, and Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder. I also specialize in Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Stress, Mild Depression, and Anxiety disorders, including phobias. I also do work with family therapy, couples therapy, and psychological/cognitive testing.
My particular strength is connecting with someone’s experience and perspective. I believe that in moments of pain and suffering we all need to feel that we are not alone and that things can be different. I balance candor with a hint of silliness or wisecracks, so that it is common to find me and my clients laughing together as I challenge their assumptions.
This can allow me to help parents to understand why their children do the things that they do, which is fundamental if they want their children to behave differently. This also allows me to help children and teens understand why their parents react the way that they do, which is fundamental if they want their parents to react differently.
I split my time between two offices locations. One located in the heart of Wellesley Center. The other in the town of Norfolk, MA. For further information please feel free to contact me directly.
