Description

I am a compassionate, genuine, direct and driven human being.  My empathy in combination with my deep desire to see measurable change combined with a strong sense of ethics and commitment to creativity leads me to the effectiveness of my therapy practice.  I believe in good fit and thus am transparent in who I am.  I support and train many therapists as a supervisor and thus have a network of others I can refer a client to if their needs are not an ideal match.  I love to help people grow and tend to use feedback to inform and direct where we go and how we are doing.  Reach out!

Summary

We are a group of therapists who are friendly, warm and very genuine though we are goal directed.  We work collaboratively with clients to set up and monitor progress on measurable objectives in therapy.  We take an ethical view that being real and authentic with our clients allows them to make the best choice, to feel safe and to grow. The clinic head has over 24 years of experience in therapy practice and supervision with a doctoral degree and we often work collaboratively to strengthen our practice.

We offer video sessions and some in person at 600 Sherbourne St and 489 College West.
