I specialize in working with adults with eating disorders and disordered eating, and the conditions that often co-occur with eating concerns such as anxiety , depression, relationship difficulties, and trauma. I also have an extensive research background in chronic fatigue syndrome (sometimes called myalgic encephalomyelitis or ME/CFS) and have worked on multiple NIH-funded studies; I am aware of the unique challenges faced by individuals living with ME/CFS and other poorly understood, stigmatized health conditions. I provide evidence-based interventions that are tailored to my client’s needs and progress.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with experience working with all ages across a wide range of concerns: specifically depression and anxiety .
Life brings all kinds of situations our way. From experiencing a traumatic event to managing difficult relationships, many experience a time in their lives in which they feel broken and in need of some help to try to put it all back together. It is my hope that you will allow me the privilege of journeying with you and working with you to once again create something beautiful from the broken pieces.

I work with adults, couples, and families, and I specialize in anxiety , depression, adjustment issues, and co-therapy for couples.
In my view, the overarching aims of therapy can be boiled down to two main goals: First, that you feel as comfortable and safe in the therapeutic setting as possible; and second, that you thrive as a person, whatever that may mean to you. As my client, I will spend time talking with you about what is important to you in your life, and I will also focus on the therapeutic relationship between us, because this can often be a window through which we can view other significant relationships in your life.

Whether you struggle with an eating disorder, relationships, addiction, social anxiety , or depression, there is hope in your willingness to go "down the rabbit hole" with me.
Are you struggling to have a healthy relationship with yourself or with others? Does it often feel like happiness comes more easily to other people than it does to you? Or that somewhere along the way, you stumbled or lost your way, and are fighting to find it again? Let me assure you that you deserve and are capable of joy and growth. My work has shown me that happiness does not mean feeling "good" all the time, but rather being strong enough to tolerate all that life throws at us. Maybe you have been thrown an awful lot.

While I have enjoyed working effectively with a wide variety of individuals, I specialize in LGBTQ affirmative therapy, ADHD, anxiety , depression, chronic shame, couples/relationship challenges, and open relationships.
One of the hardest parts of the therapeutic process is choosing the right therapist for you, and I hope to join you on your journey towards greater self-understanding, compassion, and insight. Many people come to therapy after experiencing emotional distress that has led them to feel overwhelmed and as though they have lost direction in, and control of, their life. In a safe and non-judgmental space, I work collaboratively with my clients to explore ways in which they can effectively regain a sense of empowerment, meaning, and control in their lives.

Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".

Feeling better is so possible, but it is not about getting rid of all "negative" thoughts and feelings – it’s about building the resilience. The therapy & coaching I offer is for folks interested in living a purpose-driven life, who are willing to take a close look at the patterns of thoughts, emotions, & behaviors that get in their own way. I work mostly with self-aware folks dealing with life transitions, anxiety , self-doubt, & perfectionist tendencies. We’ll work together to learn how to sit with yourself, clarify goals, & take value-driven actions that are in alignment with your desires.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
