Welcome! I help teens and adults with all types of eating disorders, disordered eating, mood and anxiety issues, and life transitions. Given the world we live in, it can be hard sometimes to sort out "normal" attempts to be healthy and fit vs disordered patterns of eating, exercising or thoughts about food and weight. Your eating issues may have suddenly become problematic or they may have been around "forever". Either way, you deserve to get help to bring balance and flexibility back into your eating and thoughts about food and your body. Learning how to manage mood changes, anxiety and stress during life changes is key.

Hope, Help, and Honor for Every Body... My special focus is disordered eating, including binge eating disorder, bulimia, anorexia, body dissatisfaction, chronic dieting, intuitive eating, and orthorexia. If you've ever had your broken relationship with food/body dismissed, overlooked, minimized, or even encouraged, due to living in a larger body, there's a special place in my heart and in my practice for you. I might be a good fit for you if you are looking for a therapist who is down-to-earth, trauma-informed, likes to use humor in our conversations, and is professional but also informal.

I specialize in FBT for families of individuals who have Anorexia Nervosa and CBT for individuals with BED.
Years of research indicate the biggest predictor of therapeutic success is the relationship developed between the therapist and client. My clients joke that I am not your traditional therapist who sits back and nods. I see myself as a "change agent" whose style is interactive, warm and direct. My philosophy is that you should leave every session with the feeling that you have moved forward with your personal goals.

Eating Disorders Therapists
Eating disorders are psychological conditions characterized by unhealthy, obsessive, or disordered eating habits. Eating disorders come with both emotional and physical symptoms and include anorexia nervosa (voluntary starvation), bulimia nervosa (binge-eating followed by purging), binge-eating disorder (binge-eating without purging), and other or unspecified eating disorders (disordered eating patterns that do not fit into another category).

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