My work with individuals depends on what my client is confronting and needs to accomplish. I am trained in psychoanalysis and this is reflected in my sensitivity to how the past makes the present understandable. Nonetheless, I recognize that a person's problems are in the present subject to all the opportunities and dilemmas of current life.
With couples who need a place to reconcile, mourn, or find new ways of being together, I try to establish a common ground for shared communication. I also help people negotiate a reasonable separation if that proves necessary and possible. Sometimes this means I follow and referee, sometimes I offer direct advice and coach, but in all cases I work so that each person has a clear and empathetic understanding of the other.
I am a Professor on the core faculty of William James College and a Lecturer at Harvard Medical School. I have taught at Wellesley College, the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Psychoanalysis. I supervise trainee psychotherapists at The Cambridge Hospital and am on the Editorial Board of The American Journal of Psychotherapy.
