I use video therapy to empower your ability for self-care, because your time is the most precious commodity and sitting in traffic just isn't very conducive to finding meaning and relief.

Having a space where all of you is welcomed, understood and supported can be a deeply healing experience. Your strengths, gifts, challenges, life story and experiences, the tender, painful, scary or confusing parts, the things you've never told anyone else- it's all welcome and deserves a safe space to be heard, honored and tended to with compassion. You're in the right place, you deserve to be here and I'm so glad you're here!

You’re getting everything done, and anyone on the outside would say you’re absolutely rocking it. But for some reason you never quite feel that way. It always feels like you’re one misstep from everything falling apart, or letting everyone down. 

You don’t have to feel this way all the time. You can start to breathe more and worry less. You can feel more confident in your relationships and trust yourself and your decisions more instead of always second guessing. 

Our work together, at its core, is building a relationship where you can safely and honestly explore your thoughts and feelings so you can move forward.

We all need to be seen, and heard, at any age. Being scared, anxious, or even depressed are sometimes part of being a person. Our fast-paced digital world can present unique challenges for our bodies and minds. I am happy to meet you wherever you are, and will approach each visit with a sense of compassionate curiosity. Just as we hunger for stories of other people to help guide us, you may wonder about your own story. Why are you here? What must you do with your life?

I work with adolescents (12+) through older, retired adults and specialize in issues of transition, anxiety, adjustment, depression, and vocation. I am not the expert in your life; you are. But sometimes we need help with perspective. Together, we will create a plan that will help you reduce the most difficult aspects of your life and help you determine how to move through them. What cannot be changed can be reviewed, understood, and ultimately, accepted.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help children, couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom

We all need help sometimes dealing with life's struggles and challenges. You don't have to go through it alone. I find it takes courage for people to reach out for help and support, and that it is so valuable to invest in yourself to make the time to just be yourself for an hour a week and talk about whatever is important to you without needing to prove yourself or fearing being judged.

With my 15 years of experience as a psychologist and psychotherapist, we will work together to make deep, long-lasting changes to move through your pain and improve the quality of your life. You don't have to let stress, anxiety, anger, trauma, shame, or loss run your life or ruin your relationships. I have had countless clients share with me their appreciation about how much our therapy has improved their lives and made them feel more whole, brave, empowered, and authentic. I look forward to having the opportunity to partner with you in creating a more deep, rich, fulfilling life.

Hello, I am a Harvard trained practitioner and Board Certified Coach with more than 30 years experience helping people to make their dreams come true. In our work together we would define where you want to go in your life, and how you will get there, with a special emphasis on what's in the way. You may work on one or more parts of your life. Since 'You are You' wherever you may go, you may find that gains you make in one part of your life can significantly improve other parts too. You will decide which part(s) of your life you want to work on. These may include: Work, Play, Family, Friends, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Money, Romance...

From me you may expect neutrality consistent with my perspective that you are the best person to be in charge of your life. And, you may expect some warmth and humor, as 'I am I' wherever I may go too. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Wishes,
Madelaine
