About

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. You could be struggling with food and body image or maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive and undefeated outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
I specialize in the care of Eating disorders, addiction, depression and anxiety. I combine: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, & Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. In every session, you can expect to receive empathy, education, support, & inspiration to increase self-confidence, promote self-awareness, & create sustainable change.
Life can get difficult - it can seem overwhelming & hopeless, & in those times, help from a professional Therapist can help to make things better. I care about your well-being, & whether you’re working to rebuild a healthy relationship with yourself or establishing one for the very first time, I look forward to the privilege of joining you on your journey.
