With 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I appreciate how difficult it can be to find the right help and the right therapist to help you. Asking for professional assistance can be daunting and unsettling. I will work collaboratively with you to create a safe trusting environment where you can talk freely about what is troubling you.
I have studied many theories of psychotherapy and use different approaches depending on an individual’s specific problems or needs. With my training, life experience, and compassion, I have been able to help many clients deepen their understanding of their thoughts and feelings in ways that enable them to get greater satisfaction in life, reduce the severity of their symptoms, and improve their ability to move forward.
My practice encompasses adolescents and adults. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. My specialties are eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating), trauma/abuse, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. When needed, I can refer you and can work closely with other professionals such as registered dieticians, psychiatrists, or physicians. I am knowledgeable about inpatient and residential treatment programs nationwide for eating disorders.
