About

I have a speciality practice, Deeper Roots Therapy, focused on treating binge eating disorder, compulsive over-eating and bulimia, along with co-occurring issues of trauma, anxiety, depression and interpersonal relationships. I utilize a non-diet, Intuitive Eating approach and have extensive training and experience in eating disorders, focused on mindfulness, somatic and cognitive behavioral therapy. Prior to my private practice, I was supervisor of an outpatient eating disorder program in Connecticut.
My therapy style focuses on teaching intuitive eating, guiding clients to reconnect with their bodies, decreasing eating disorder symptoms and understanding your patterns to improve self-insight and acceptance. I work extensively with the body though somatic and trauma therapies, such as Embodied Recovery, Safe and Sound Protocol and Brainspotting.
Please feel free to reach out for a complimentary consultation to learn more about my work and how I may help you. Deeper Roots Therapy employs a group of qualified therapists and I can assist you in finding the right therapist fit for you. Visit www.deeperrootstherapy.com and for more information.
