Announcement icon All sessions are via Telehealth for the time being.
Are you struggling to feel like yourself? You may be feeling lost and confused. Do you experience symptoms of anxiety or depression? Do you notice an impact on your relationships, work, school, family, or daily life and basic functioning? Perhaps you struggle with food, eating, or body image? Do you lack motivation or interest in life or hobbies? You want to understand why you're feeling this way, and how you can create a deeper understanding of yourself and what makes you who you are. Maybe you've experienced a significant life event, or maybe you haven't, but regardless, you're struggling to make sense of where you're at in life.
I have particular experience treating eating disorders, in addition to mood and anxiety disorders, life transitions, relationships issues, and more. I utilize psychodynamic theory, incorporating ISTDP, mindfulness, and ACT interventions. Through weekly sessions at your pace, we will collaborate to help you feel better.
You have an inherent capacity to heal, and when we're struggling, it's easy to isolate and avoid help. What you're feeling is normal, however you don't have to go at it alone. Feel free to reach out over the phone, or schedule online at the "Website" link below my profile photo.
