Finding the right therapist is perhaps the most important step in the therapy process. A trusting relationship allows clients to feel safe when exploring deeper issues and taking risks. I am dedicated to creating a warm, supportive, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients. Using an interpersonal and integrative approach, I enjoy working with adolescents and adults struggling with eating disorders, mood disorders, and relationship concerns. Having worked in both private practice and university settings has given me 14 years of experience with this work.
If you are struggling with an eating disorder, determining the level of care or type of treatment needed is essential. I will conduct a thorough assessment and offer a specific treatment plan. If more comprehensive care is needed, a team of providers (therapist, dietitian, and physician) will be recommended.
No matter what the underlying concern, I am dedicated to helping each client feel more confident in meeting challenges, taking risks, gaining self-acceptance, and enjoying life to the fullest.
