Focus on your strengths, forgive your weaknesses.



I have always had a terrible sense of direction. In childhood and adolescence, I frequently had my head in a book while in the car, and never paid attention to my surroundings. When it came time for me to get my license at age sixteen, I had no idea how to get anywhere. As an adult, I often look around and marvel at the fact that everyone seems to know where they are going, when I so frequently am “lost,” directionally speaking.

In the field of Psychology, every day is a reminder that there is more to learn and know and do. The field is vast and there is always something new and exciting and fascinating to understand, and it’s impossible to be expert in all of the topics and keep up with all of the things. At best, practitioners can be expert in one or two areas, knowledgeable in a handful, and ignorant of many others. There’s just so much out there!

If we focus on everything we can’t do or don’t know, we can get down on ourselves very quickly.

We cannot be great (or even good) at all of the things, and we cannot be expert in everything. It is total folly to try to do so, because it will completely run us into the ground in our attempts.

If we focus our energies into areas in which we have natural gifts and abilities, we free ourselves to become truly skilled and expert in our own ways. When we forgive ourselves the need to apologize for our deficits, and accept that we won’t be good at everything, we cut out all the fluff that wasn’t meant for us to begin with. We allow ourselves to be great in the areas that truly matter, because they are OURS.

Don’t beat yourself up about your imperfections. Celebrate the unique ways in which you are great.

Also, thank goodness for Google Maps.


Useful Information

Some frequently asked questions and useful answers.

Online therapy works in the same way as in-office therapy, but is done online, similar to a Skype or FaceTime conversation. Clients are able to have sessions from home, work, or any other convenient location. We meet with clients using a HIPAA-compliant secure platform.

Online therapy allows you to work with us from the comfort of home, or any private location of your choosing. For some, the screen provides an added layer of comfort that makes the challenging work of being vulnerable in therapy a little easier.

Online therapy also creates the unique opportunity for you to work with us without the constraints of proximity! The practice was born in Keene, New Hampshire, but has since grown to service clients anywhere in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Vermont, New Jersey, Florida, and New Hampshire.

Online therapy is a great option for clients that travel for work, for college students that go home during the summertime and do not want a break in their sessions, and for anyone with a challenging or inconsistent day-to-day schedule. It is an excellent choice for clients seeking a therapist with a particular specialty that they are unable to find support for locally. Some of our clients report that online therapy makes the vulnerability element of therapy a bit less intimidating.

No. For some clients with more complex symptoms or safety concerns, having a local therapist that is readily available is important in case of crisis or the need for a higher level of care. Online therapy is also a challenge for clients that do not have access to a private, quiet space to be “in session” for the hour, or for those that do not have adequate internet connectivity.

There are several reasons why we don’t accept insurance. The most important are:

Confidentiality. Insurance companies require that your information be shared with them in order to pay for services. We prefer that clients’ information is kept as confidential as possible.

The pressure to diagnose. Insurance companies require that clients are given a mental health diagnosis in order to pay for therapy. We have found that many clients benefit from therapy, but do not meet criteria for a diagnosis. Not using insurance allows clients to access therapy without being given a mental health diagnosis.

Flexibility and freedom. Insurance companies dictate the length and number of sessions they will authorize, as well as when a client is no longer eligible for the benefits of therapy. Because we do not work with insurance panels, you and we can collaborate to determine your individual needs regarding session length, frequency of sessions, and when to terminate therapy.

While we do not accept insurance, many clients choose to submit receipts to their insurance companies to receive reimbursement via out-of-network benefits. We are happy to provide these receipts for you! Please check with your insurance company for details on your benefits.
