I am a Clinical Social Worker, LICSW, CGP (Certified Group Psychotherapist) and have been in private practice in Cambridge for 30 years.  My practice includes individual and group psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.  I was formerly an adjunct faculty at Boston College GSSW and Simmons College GSSW where I taught group therapy.  I am currently on the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis (MIP), where I did my analytic training.  I am an active member of both NSGP and AGPA (local and national group therapy associations) and regularly present workshops and lead training groups locally and nationally. 

I see group therapy as a unique opportunity to develop relationships within a safe structure which supports the exploration of the potential of connections with others.  It is a forum in which to understand more fully the issues that interfere with greater satisfaction in one’s life and in relationships with others.  Unlike any other modality group therapy provides multiple opportunities to see oneself in relationship to others and to learn about other people and the ways in which they manage their lives.
