I am a group and individual therapist and the former Group Coordinator at the Boston Institute for Psychotherapy. My passion for group therapy is rooted in my experiences with what can happen when people agree to do put their thoughts and feelings into words (not actions) and come back - even when it's tough. Group offers a place to listen, to be heard, and to be understood. Group also offers opportunities to explore and experiment with different ways of being. For example, someone who is passive can play with being assertive. Someone who is talkative can notice what it feels like to talk less.
My leadership style is anchored in warmth and curiosity. I find people come to group because they want to experience life, or specific parts of life, differently. Group therapy can function as a laboratory or play space for change.
I am on the Board of Directors of the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy and an active member of the American Group Psychotherapy Association.
