I am a licensed clinical social worker (LICSW), tutor, and organizational coach who specializes in helping children and adults with attention and executive-function difficulties. Over the course of my career, I have developed a holistic approach that enables clients to both compensate for and directly remediate weaknesses in those areas. Interventions typically focus on improving academic or job skills, psychological adjustment, information processing, school/workplace accommodations, and relationship dynamics. Sometimes I involve the client’s family members or significant others in the therapeutic process to maximize the potential for change and personal healing. I have co-taught at the Tufts University School of Education and spoken about my work to parents, teachers, students, and therapeutic professionals at venues in eastern Massachusetts. After receiving a B.A. in English from Bucknell University (1980), I then earned a Master of Education degree from Boston University (1998), plus a Master of Clinical Social Work degree from Boston University (2001). Previous to my current work in counseling and education, I had a 13-year career in corporate communications in New York and Boston. A father of two, I live with my wife in Winchester, MA. I see clients out of an office in my Winchester home on Mondays through Wednesdays and out of an office in Harvard, MA, on Thursdays and Fridays.

I was fortunate enough to find John over a decade ago, when I was first beginning graduate school. I have seen him pretty steadily over the years. When I am going through difficult phases, such as major transitions in relationships or work, I see him more often. He has been terrific to work with!John S.
The First Step
Our work together will start with a short intro call to discuss your or your child’s needs and my treatment approach. This intake process ensures that you have everything you need for our first meeting. I look forward to hearing from you.
