Therapists Specializing in Medical Professionals' Mental Health in Boston Area

Many medical professionals are at risk of burnout and work-related stress due to the nature of the work: long hours, a complex and intense workload, exposure to suffering, and a high emotional load. These pressures can be overwhelming and can increase vulnerability to symptoms of common mental health challenges, such as depression or anxiety.

When these symptoms start to impact daily life or work, it can help to remember that your own wellbeing is equally as important as that of your patients. Therapy can be a powerful tool for improving your overall health and functioning. Many efficacious therapy modalities can be explored with the providers below, so find an approach that resonates with you and is a good fit for your needs. Some therapists might focus on helping you develop new coping skills, explore workplace problems, and reason through potential solutions to these problems. Other providers might help you examine your thinking patterns and help you develop alternative perspectives.

I hope to provide a safe space each week that allows you a break from the responsibilities and expectations of work, family, and friends to focus on yourself. In a day and age, where we are always accessible and an immediate response is generally expected from us majority of the time, the decision to actively make time to focus on your own needs deserves praise in itself. My hope is that by helping you prioritize yourself for just one hour each week, that the other 167 hours of your week will feel more useful…providing hope that tomorrow will be better than today.

Therapy is a process and a process I believe in. I value authenticity, humor and human connection in my clinical work and believe that these are essential elements of healing. Through our conversations, we will explore, discover and process how your past can influence the present and future and hopefully deepen your understanding of the self and increase awareness of how you are and how you would like to be.

My clients inspire me. They are brave and real and they show up even when life gets hard. They want to get to know themselves in a deep and meaningful way and by doing that, they live the life they imagine. Some of my clients have experienced loss. Many times that means the death loss of a loved one but sometimes it means the loss of a meaningful relationship, or job, or identity. Some of my clients want to become more confident and feel empowered to live a life that is full to them. Other clients of mine have had childhoods that they are now recognizing have impacted their life and would like to look at those experiences.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and really value the relationship that we build together. I will be real with you in the room in the hopes that we can have an authentic conversation about what is really going on in your life. I will not be a blank slate but instead will ask you great questions, laugh with you, support you, and be honest with you.

If we decide to work together, you won’t just get a smile and nod therapist or a blank slate. You will get a real person in the room with you. Yes, a highly trained professional but more importantly, a human being who believes in empathy, resilience and the power of human connection. We will work together to create a treatment plan that works for you.

The therapy space is your space, so it is important to me that you feel comfortable and understood.

I can help you change your relationship with your partner, your family, a friend, or yourself! People are often challenged by difficult emotions or challenging relationships. Instead of facing this task head-on, you may distract yourself with unhealthy habits like over-drinking, improper eating, excessive social media or video game playing. While these techniques may help in the moment, they can make the problem worse. If you are avoiding the challenge, you will not find the peace!

Wouldn't it be nice if you could say: "I have relationships that make me happy; I am present in my life and the lives of others; I treat myself with compassion; I have healthy hobbies; I find my work meaningful, and I feel satisfied with my life."

I use a variety of approaches and I will tailor our work to each individual. Techniques include CBT, EFT and family therapy. My specialties include work-life balance, couples counseling and men’s issues, but I am well-versed in helping with anxiety, depression, adjusting to a life change, and other issues. If you are ready to jump in, call or email today!

To be human comes with a range of experiences, emotions, and questions. Therapy can help support us through times of struggle and change. As a psychologist, I am continually honored to connect with individuals in all of their humanness, and to help them connect to and trust that within themselves during their processes of healing and transformation.

You are not sure what you need, where to turn; you feel strange reaching out for support - you wonder if you are even worth helping. You’ve tried a lot of things to help yourself - mindfulness, meditation, yoga, exercise and more. You are relieved for a time, until it all comes back, sometimes worse than before. On the outside, you pride yourself on being an intelligent person, a strong individual, a committed worker, a loyal friend. Perhaps you identify as a member of the LBGTQ+ community. Yet these days you find yourself spinning inside. You can’t shake these feelings of being out of control. Sometimes your behavior really is.

I can assure you: you are worth it. You’ve decided to seek out therapy because a part of you already knows this. You don’t yet know how, but you are ready to lead a mindful, insight-filled life – both inwardly & outwardly. You are ready to access that deep calm and compassion within yourself, no matter what difficulties you face every day.
