About Me

I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2006.  I graduated from the Boston University School of Social Work with my Masters in Social Work in 2008, and in 2010, I became a Licensed independent Clinical Social Worker (LiCSW).  Before becoming a full-time psychotherapist, I worked as a hospice social worker, providing support to patients and families going through the dying process.

My passion for mindfulness began at age 16, ignited by Eckhart Tolle's "The Power of Now" and fueled further by additional spiritual classics.  I ran the student meditation group in college, and subsequently lived as a resident at the Cambridge Zen Center for seven years post-graduation.  I've studied and practiced within Zen, Shambhala (Tibetan Buddhism), and Insight Meditation traditions, as well as with several independent spiritual teachers along the way.

I began teaching mindfulness in 2006.  Since then, I have led mindfulness retreats, groups, and taught workshops in various settings.  In 2010 I published an introductory guide to meditation (see publications).

In my off-hours I enjoy spending time with my wife and our energetic 10 year-old, taking advantage of the many hikes and outdoor activities that the Upper Valley has to offer.
