I maintain a full-time psychotherapy practice, focusing on evidence based practices for intervening with children, adolescents and adults. In particular, I focus on mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches to helping people create greater flexibility in their managment of daily life, as well as greater quality in their relationships, and passionate commitment to their values and ideals. As a therapist, I emphasize a strong therapeutic relationship and seek to have our treatment relationship serve as a guide for understanding and untangling from unhelpful patterns of relating to others and managing emotions that block one's effectiveness across life domains. Please note that at present I do not accept private health insurance. I provide documentation for submission to insurance for reimbursement.
Though "coaching" is somewhat of a watered down professional moniker these days, I do like the term for describing client work that centers around professional development and effectiveness. Consider coaching to be a subset of psychotherapy in which the domain of the work focuses in on removing the obstacles to effective performance and pursuit of one's professional goals. In my role as a professional coach, I use tailored assessments to help clients develop an intensive understanding of their particular inter and intra-persersonal roadblocks, and develop a calibrated intervention plan to overcome these barriors in order to generate the desired momentum in their career path. The ignition of professional passion comes from this process of intensive support, feedback and directed practice of skills.
My experiences as a therapist, supervisor, clinical supervisor and program administrator have facilitated my skillset for helping individuals and agencies understand and create more effective patterns of communication, as well as to enhance the quality of their intervention services. I have served as a consultant to Massachusetts school districts, and provided supervisory consultation to individual practictioners.
