"I work with people who are feeling off track or stuck and ready to make a change. Sometimes patterns keep repeating themselves and it's not clear why or habits become hard to change. If circumstances have you feeling troubled or confused, or your relationships have become a source of frustration or distress, what and how to change may not come easy. I help people sort out what no longer works and find the way forward."

"I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction. These and other disorders often begin, in part, as coping mechanisms to deal with uncomfortable life experiences. Unfortunately, the more time spent engaging in them, the harder it is to stop, as neural pathways in the brain are being rewired, which will reinforce the behavior. What was once a coping mechanism now becomes a significant source of distress and actually impairs functioning in all areas of life. My approach to therapy is strongly influenced by Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Psychodynamic Theory, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)"
