About

No openings at this time. Dealing with life in the time of Corona Virus? I am seeing people in person, via phone or video chat. it always helps to get another perspective and some concrete ways of coping. Using techniques such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Processing technique and Narrative therapy can help in the process of self discovery and recovery.
I was born to be a therapist and have been doing so informally and formally my whole life. Therapy can be challenging but it doesn't have to be scary. Let's talk about what's getting in the way so you can be happier. Just be willing to be willing.
I do specialize In compulsive overeating because it was a challenge for me in the past. Addressing this issue isn't about losing weight although that can be a happy consequence. It's not about the food but what is "eating" you. Be gentle with yourself and take the first step.
