Welcome to Mount Auburn Counseling Center

Thirty years ago I co-founded Mount Auburn Counseling Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As a Harvard educated psychotherapist, I have drawn on my extensive training and experience to build a multifaceted counseling and psychologist practice. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and depression and also work with clients helping them address relationship, couples, marital and family therapy issues, parenting concerns, and major life transitions. Learn more on my practice page and see my photo album of pictures of the Mount Auburn Counseling Center and Harvard Square. In addition to my counseling and psychologist practice, I am a Disaster Mental Health Specialist for the Red Cross and have volunteered for numerous international community agencies and orphanages. Lastly along with my colleague and son, I co-authored an award winning children's book, Sugar Was My Best Food: Diabetes and Me. Thank you for reading about me, I look forward to learning more about you.
