I am a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst offering psychotherapy,
consultation, and supervision in Boston for more than thirty years.
My job is to create a safe place where individuals and couples can explore
current or long-standing problems and find realistic solutions. A significant
part of this work involves carefully and mutually developing an appreciation
of people's actual qualities and circumstances. Individuals and couples have
strengths and vulnerabilities that need to be empathically recognized and
understood for there is to be a basis for realistic change. I work with people
in crisis or who sense they have patterns of living that could benefit from
a clear understanding and want an expert and experienced partner to help
facilitate their desired change.
I am a Professor on the core faculty of William James College (formerly the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology) and a Lecturer at Harvard Medical School. I have taught at Wellesley College, the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Psychoanalysis. I supervise trainee psychotherapists at The Cambridge Hospital.
