You've known that some issues have been always holding you back from reaching your full potential in life, career, and relationships. You realize that these unresolved and unattended issues do not serve your life, and keep sabotaging your happiness on different levels... Perhaps, you even tried working through some of them on your own, but deep down you know you need some external help and guidance to heal from them. You would like to reach some peace, let go of pain, learn how to accept and love yourself better, learn some real tools and skills to be more resilient, feel strong and confident, and be able to enjoy life.
Are you tired of constant dieting, hating or judging your body, are you using food and/or exercise to deal with stress? I love helping people with emotional eating, non-effective dieting cycles, bad body image, over exercise problems, anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders. You can break free, and live a full life!
In therapy, I strive for each client to create a safe and nurturing place for exploration. Depending on your specific needs, I incorporate different modalities, techniques, offer various tools and skills, depth of exploration, and intensity. I always value mindfulness, meditation, CBT, specific skills training, somatic work, and art/play therapy.
