I am a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst offering
psychotherapy, consultation and supervision in Boston for
more than thirty years.
I have maintained my consultation, psychotherapy and supervision practice
on Newbury Street since 1985.
My job is to create a safe place where individuals and couples can explore
their 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 if 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 the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and on the
faculty of 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.
