For over 15 years, I have worked with clients who struggle with "diagnosable" eating disorders, chronic disordered eating, food and body obsession, shame and self blame, thought patterns and behaviors resulting from prior dieting and living in a thin-obsessed world. My goal for every one of my clients is peace, freedom and sanity around food, movement, and body shape; that's it. I am a Health At Every Size certified practitioner. As such, I am dedicated to an anti-diet, body liberation perspective. My approach is compassionate, relational, casual, warm, and loving.

I believe therapy is a collaborative relationship that can lead to finding new and positive ways of relating to people and situations in your life. In therapy, we look at the distinctive ways in which you relate to me and others, whether or not you are aware of them, and then we analyze them so you can consciously begin to do something different. I want to make psychotherapy affordable, so I accept clients on a sliding scale basis, from $95 to $125. I would be happy to hear from you.

For many people, therapy can give a person a deepened awareness of their life and provide relief from suffering. Therapy can help us gain an active perspective in living a full and meaningful life. Whether one is struggling with depression, anxiety, or interpersonal problems, therapy may be a helpful journey to alleviate the pain. My approach is interpersonal and psychodynamically informed while also exploring concrete solutions. Many people can feel better in just a couple sessions and others are looking for a long term process. Both can be helpful.

Typically individuals come to psychotherapy for relief of emotional and psychological pain, which may take the form of depression, anxiety, self-defeating behavior, and/or unfulfilled relationships or goals, to name a few. Many can identify some past trauma, or perhaps some mistreatment that seems somehow connected. For others the reasons are more elusive, like a general feeling of unhappiness, perhaps with oneself or with others.I strive to help you verbalize your thoughts and feelings about what happens between us in our emerging relationship as a way of understanding your relationships in general.
