About

According to A. Maslow, you must first have your basic physiological needs met before you can reach self-actualization. If you are searching for support and guidance in making the necessary changes to improve your life (especially now), I am here for you. I mostly work with those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders and/or addictions. Some of my clients only require a few sessions while others have been with me for several years. I have found that the therapeutic relationship is of utmost importance in the outcome of treatment. Trust and safety are key ingredients in reaching therapeutic goals.
I have specialized in mood, eating, and addictive disorders for over 15 years in a private practice setting. My earlier research focused on the addictive model of eating disorders and Self-Help v. Professional Treatment. I taught Substance abuse and Psychology at JJC before dedicating myself to clinical practice.
During the pandemic, due to limited privacy, I started offering walking sessions to emphasize a more mindfulness based approach. In addition to psychodynamic and mindfulness based CBT concepts and techniques, I have found that a combination of psychological and spiritual tools helps to bring about the most significant growth and change.
