I apply my skills to the treatment of eating disorders, substance abuse, trauma and the relationship issues.
You are unique, sometimes quirky with an inner world that requires management. Your pain is about being able to express what matters most, both to yourself and others. You usually manage well, but life events have become over-whelming. Currently you are feeling, lost, uncertain and the past has risen up in memory, or action to haunt the day to day. The desire to make meaning of the present and cope more efficiently, while finding joy in the current circumstance motivates you. Perhaps it is death, relationship, work or health problem that brings you to seek therapy at this time.

My specialties are in the care and treatment of individuals struggling with eating disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders.
George Eliot said "the strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice." This could not be more true. We make choices every day: get up or snooze, jeans or dress pants, say "hello" or "good morning," one more episode or go to bed, and the list goes on. However, certain choices have a greater impact on our lives than others. At the top of the list is self-care. This can be extremely difficult at times. Sometimes it feels like life has thrown everything (and the kitchen sink at us), and it's too much to sort through on our own. My goal is to help you and your loved ones get back on your feet...and stay there.

Although I am prepared to work with a wide range of issues, I have particular interest and training in the treatment of eating disorders, women's issues, and relationships.
I focus on helping people separate their preferences from their problems, identify values that are most important to them, and determine the actions that will best express those values. I work collaboratively with people to detail their future hopes and honor the histories that inform their current experiences and relationships. "Therapeutic conversations help us navigate the limitations and dilemmas we all face. We each have ongoing stories about our lives, which are written by multiple authors: ourselves, our families, community, culture, and society. Some of these stories empower and embolden while others constrain and limit."

If you're looking for a Los Angeles eating disorder therapist, these professionals provide eating disorder therapy and counseling in Los Angeles.
