Having worked in community mental health at the outpatient department of the Cambridge Health Alliance for 18 years as a therapist, supervisor and the associate director of the DBT program, I'm experienced with a wide variety of mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, and many sequelae of trauma, including the feeling of being chronically shamed.
Interests, experience and current practice:
I am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and a clinical and program development consultant at Cambridge Health Alliance.
Until January, 2015, I was the Associate Director and Director of Training of DBT at Cambridge Health Alliance.
In addition to being the author of several articles, I am a co-editor or co-author of three books related to IFS (see Publications page on this website).
I co-lead (with Toni Herbine-Blank) workshops for IFS trained therapists on understanding shame and practicing self-compassion. And I present on IFS, trauma and and the effects of traumatic shaming for various organizations.
I have a private practice in downtown Northampton, MA.
I'm also available for consultation and supervision either with individuals or groups.
