About Me

I moved to the Berkshires in 1983 with my family and have always felt lucky to live and work in our community. My specialty is to combine psychotherapy and medication treatment, if needed. I work in close collaboration with my patients based on a thorough understanding of each person's unique history, challenges, strengths, values and preferences.
