Located in Kendall Square, we provide warm, attentive, interactive therapy that aims to help you deepen your self-understanding, break out of hurtful patterns, and develop new modes of thinking, feeling, and relating to others.

We are particularly interested in helping you feel freer, more connected, and more like the author of your own life, so that you can achieve what you hope for in work and relationships. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will work to transform long-standing patterns that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
