No, therapy is not limited to individuals with mental health conditions. Therapy can benefit anyone who wants support, personal growth, stress management, relationship improvement, or guidance in navigating life’s challenges.
During a therapy session, we will have discussions where I actively listen, ask questions, and provide insights to help you explore your emotions and thoughts. I may also teach you specific techniques and tools to effectively manage your concerns.
I specialize in working with people who have experienced trauma, especially when they have experienced this trauma early in their lives. I am particularly interested in helping adults who have Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Complex post traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD). I also specialize in helping people who struggle with ADHD, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, and insomnia. I have developed a therapy for technology addiction based on my pioneering academic research on the topic. Lastly, I have a great deal of experience providing executive coaching for C-level executives, particularly those in the technology industry.
During EMDR, I guide you through eye movements or bilateral tactile or auditory stimulation while asking you to recall a situation or a feeling. EMDR allows the events that used to trigger the brain into overreaction to no longer have the same effect.
EMDR intensive sessions are focused sessions, conducted over the weekend that can last from 4-6 hours per day. They are designed to condense your progress over a short period of time and work to provide faster, more efficient change. I provide EMDR intensives for current clients, to clients who are working with another therapist as adjunct therapy, or to those willing to commute to the Boston region. Please contact me if you are interested in EMDR intensives.
While both ART and EMDR use eye movements, ART is different in two substantial ways: 1) Clients see improvement in the symptoms much more quickly using ART than EMDR and 2) Unlike EMDR, clients do not have to talk about distressing events. Because of these two reasons, clients engaging in ART experience more limited exposure to disturbing memories.
Executive coaching is designed to help C-level executives realize their full potential. Using my in-depth understanding of leadership techniques and executive psychology, I provide individualized advice that is in line with your unique objectives which may include improving your work-life balance, honing your strategic thinking, decision-making, or communication skills. I have decades of experience working with C-level executives, especially those in technology startups. Please follow this link to schedule a free confidential consultation if you’d like to discuss your objectives.
Measurement-Based Care is the evidence-based practice of systematically and routinely assessing your progress through the measurement of symptoms and functioning. I will ask you to report on your outcomes using brief, standardized surveys that will allow us to see your progress over time. We then discuss those results in the context of your treatment goals and adjust as necessary.
When selecting a psychologist, I encourage you to consider factors such as my qualifications, experience, specialization, and approach to therapy. It’s essential to find someone with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting therapeutic relationship. You can schedule a free 15-minute consultation to see if we’d be a good fit by scheduling a free consultation.
I trained in both the clinical and counseling psychology programs at Penn State University, was a fellow for over a decade at Harvard University, and have taught at Oxford University. I spent many years in academia teaching graduate-level counseling students and studying the impact of technology on psychological well-being. My work has been published in highly ranked academic journals and has been cited by numerous media outlets including NPR, The New York Times, The Atlantic, WIRED, CNN, and NBC.

I reserve a proportion of space in my practice for individuals who may not otherwise be able to afford therapy. This generally applies to those who are unemployed or underemployed, specifically those who have endured the consequences of oppression related to gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, age, colonialism, classism, or ableism.
