Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

Becoming a mother can be one of the most beautiful transitions in your life while also being one of the most challenging times you may ever face. No one can prepare you for what it means to be a parent. Everything from feelings of shame, guilt, and inadequacy to sleep deprivation and hormonal changes can turn this beautiful life transition into a state of isolation and loneliness. Even though there are thousands of people becoming new parents everyday, it can feel like you are completely alone, isolated even from those that love you the most.

"Helping you change the things that you can." It's the tagline on my business card and a familiar suggestion from the well-known Serenity Prayer. It points out two things I look for in clients that I believe will be successful - the desire to change and knowing what that is (and isn't). With an open mind and the willingness to consider a different perspective you'll be amazed at the freedom you'll encounter to once again take charge of the things in your life you want to change.

Your preschool- or elementary-schooler is struggling. Tantrums, limit-testing, and behavior reports from school are your new normal. You've heard about play therapy and parenting classes, but it's hard to know which direction to go. The stress is building up with your kids, their teachers, and even with your spouse. It seems like everybody else has it all together, but your little one is struggling. They're not making friends, or doing well at school, or able to adjust after a big life transition. They're saying "NO!" all the time, and "I love you"? Not so much. You've tried it all and it's not working.

As we navigate our lives, we are faced with life transitions. These changes can trigger anxiety, depression or other feelings. Often transitions can challenge our existing belief systems, which in turn, cause confusion and feelings of distress. Having someone who can truly listen and understand these challenges often helps us find our way to a more satisfying life. Sorting through the clutter of our lives and zeroing in on our true selves can help us optimize our happiness and contentment. Living a life in which we thrive not merely survive. In a highly confidential environment, we start wherever you feel comfortable.

Life's path can be quite dark and confusing at times. When it is, you often can experience anxiety, depression, maladaptive behaviors, a lack of connectedness with others and lose a sense of purpose. Much of life is trying to satisfy similar basic emotional/social needs, yet everyone's experience is unique in getting there. You, as an individual, are a one of a kind entity and should have this acknowledged and treated accordingly. I have applied this view point of therapy to a host of presenting problems: anxiety, mood disorders, relationship issues, grief and loss, various stages of life, and others.

Sometimes life gets in the way of truly living. You may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed. You're tired of feeling like you can't turn off your mind. You find yourself feeling more anxious or sad. Whatever has led you to this place, maybe you are less interested in things that used to make you happy, drinking/using more drugs than you would like, or having difficulty navigating important relationships. Recognizing that you have a concern about how life is going and that you want something different is completely okay and actually highlights your ability to look inward.
