I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Group Psychotherapist with offices in Arlington and Brookline, Massachusetts. I have treated adults, adolescents and children in individual, couples and group therapy in the Greater Boston area for the past 25 years. In addition, I provide supervision, consultation and training to clinicians on group therapy and a variety of other topics.

Primarily, I work with clients in individual therapy on a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, sexuality, divorce, step-parenting, trauma, loss and grief. Through exploration and collaboration, I help clients gain more clarity, become more connected, and feel greater satisfaction with their lives.

While I have experience with children and adolescents, my current practice is focused on adults, couples and groups. I specialize in working with women who are in transition. Whether transitioning from college to graduate school or work, beginning or ending a relationship or job, becoming a parent or an empty nester, or coming out to family and friends, these experiences offer an opportunity for reflection, deeper understanding and meaningful change.

If you are interested in seeing me for individual or couples therapy, please contact me to schedule an initial appointment. At that time, we can decide together whether it feels like the right fit. My fee is $200 for a 50 minute individual or couples therapy session and $60 for a 75 minute group session. I am an out of network provider for most insurance plans including Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, POS and Indemnity Plans, HPHC and Tufts PPO and POS Plans, Cigna and Aetna plans with out of network benefits, and Beacon Health Plans for Massachusetts state employees.

My practice affirms, promotes, and celebrates people without regard to race, color, sex, disability, affectional or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ethnicity, national origin, age or socioeconomic status. Systems of power, privilege, and oppression have traditionally created barriers for persons with particular identities. I pledge to do all I can to replace such barriers with solidarity, mutual respect and ongoing personal education and reflection.
