Our work is not about diets.
Our work is about self care.
How often will I have to come to therapy?
The best therapy happens in the continuity of weekly sessions. Once a good base is established it may be possible to go to biweekly sessions. When you’ve reached your desired results, monthly sessions are possible for check-ins to make sure you’re maintaining your goals.
How long will I have to stay in therapy?
I know you’re anxious to see results — and changing stubborn habits can take time. Everyone has different needs and there is no way to predict how long it will take to address them. Impatience and impulsive decisions often contribute to bingeing and over eating. It’s important to be patient with the process and yourself.
How long before I stop bingeing or over eating?
Each person and situation is unique. Some people stop bingeing quickly and other don’t. It took time for this problem to develop, it can take time to resolve and it’s important to give it time. The sooner we get started the sooner you will see the positive changes in your life.
How long before I start losing weight?
Again, each person and their situation is unique. My goal for you is to uncover the reasons you use food to comfort yourself and to help you become unburdened from the habit so that weight loss lasts a lifetime.
Do I have to be on a diet to work with you?
Our work is not about diets. Our work is about self-care. If you choose, you may work with a nutritionist in your quest for support around your goals.
What kind of therapy do you practice?
I practice individual and group therapy using Internal Family Systems, Tapas Acupressure Technique, Dream Interpretation and common sense. I also provide supervision and consultation for psychotherapists, and trainings on documentation for clinicians and clinics.
Do you see people with other problems besides weight related issues?
Yes. I also see people dealing with early mother loss, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, transitions, grief and blocks to creativity.
How will I know if you are the right person for me?
I offer a free 30 minute phone consultation so you can get your questions answered. Send me an email or call 617.522.6611 to set up a time.
What are your office hours?
I have some day and some evening hours open. Please call or send an e-mail for an appointment.
Do you take insurance?
I accept some insurance and can give you an invoice for all PPO Plans. Please feel free to call or email for more information.
