I am a clinical psychologist licensed to practice in any US state that participates in the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT), as well as MassachusettsI completed my undergraduate degree at Brown University and my PhD at Boston University, where I trained at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders. My doctoral research focused on transdiagnostic interventions for emotional disorders.

I take a cognitive-behavioral, transdiagnostic approach to therapy. My approach emphasizes mindful acceptance, values and workability.​ Most often, I work within the framework of Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT; see Resources for more).

Cognitive-behavioral: The parts of human suffering and flourishing that are under our influence are driven by patterns in thinking and action, and how we relate to our thoughts and behaviors.

Transdiagnostic:  Mental health is not cleanly divided into categories; rather, there are shared underlying tendencies that contribute to many sets of symptoms. These shared processes can be the target of therapy. 

Mindful acceptance: We tend to be more effective, and suffer less, when we pay attention to experience in a way that is anchored in the present, nonjudgmental and nonreactive; and when we are willing to acknowledge and experience reality as it is.

Values: The best roadmap for navigating the difficult territory of the human condition is a personally authored definition of what matters most.

Workability: We are organisms with practical limits, living in conditions over which we have incomplete control. We must "do what works best," even though our best is not perfect.
