57 Gothic Street
Northampton, MA 01027
I am originally from England and came to this area in the 1980’s when I obtained my MSW at the Smith College School for Social Work. Until 2000 I worked primarily in college mental health, mostly at Mt. Holyoke College. I have been in full-time private practice since that time.
I practice what I think of as modern psychodynamic psychotherapy, an eclectic mix that is based on psychodynamic theory. It is essentially about relationship and connection and is informed and supplemented by many other frameworks: AEDP and ACT, family systems, attachment theory, developmental theory, feminism, CBT. I am a fairly active therapist, I ask a lot of questions. I do both long-term and short-term work.
I see a range of clients, both men and women from age 16 upwards, including college students, I also work with couples. I do some supervision and consultation with other therapies.
The range of problems and issues I work with is wide and includes many of the difficulties that people struggle with in their lives. I see people with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and adult AD/HD and trauma, as well as relational conflicts, such as divorce or parenting issues, I also work with eating disorders. When working with young clients with eating issues, I do the Maudsley method of family treatment.
I accept most insurances, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Tufts, HNE, UBH, Harvard Pilgrim, Aetna, Medicare and BMC.
I prefer to be contacted by phone at 1-413-584-1992. I do respond to email, firstname.lastname@example.org, but it may take longer to hear back from me.
