Recovering from an Eating Disorder is a challenging feat. But it can be a journey of self discovery, renewed strength,and the most important gift you give to yourself. I have been in practice in SLO since 1984, first as a Registered Dietitian, and then as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist. I specialize in treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and compulsive exercise, for women, men and teens. I have assisted hundreds of individuals to fully recover and go on to lead happy balanced lives. Having recovered myself, I know the pain of disordered eating and the freedom of transcending it.

We all go through things in our lives that are difficult. I believe it is through these struggles that we have the opportunity to grow. Oftentimes connecting with another person to help guide you can be the changing factor in transitioning from struggle to growth.

The heart of my work with individual adults is to help you explore your inner emotional experience, identify negative, self-defeating beliefs and learn skills that will help you to respond, rather than react, to life situations. Our work together provides the space and guidance to develop greater self-awareness and compassion for yourself, while working through difficult issues of past and present. This approach can be helpful for anxiety and depression as well as experiencing deeper meaning in life.

My passion is in couples work, trauma processing, and the intersection of the two. These relational challenges profoundly impact many aspects of life, from our ability to focus to our happiness and contentment in life. The good news is that it doesn't have to be like this, you can reconnect with yourself and the ones you love. While I teach communication skills and coping strategies to help you feel stabilized, I also believe in the power of exploring oneself deeply to create lasting change.

I like working with people who recognize that they want or need to change something in their lives that they haven't yet figured out how to do by themselves. This includes people who feel they are stuck creatively-- working on a particular project that just doesn't move forward. Sometimes it is a question of what needs to change, as well as how to make that happen. While this process requires work that only they can do, therapy gives them a place to learn ways to do this work, using cognitive and experiential techniques.
