While I have specialized in treating both eating disorders and trauma for most of her career, I also have a great deal of experience and interest in treating anxiety, depression, grief , adoption related issues and navigating life transitions.
Selecting a Therapist to partner in your journey of self discovery and change is an important decision. I have close to 30 years of experience treating adolescents and adults with a wide range of issues. My experience has taught me that people have a great deal of internal wisdom, but sometimes need assistance in accessing and utilizing that information. In 2012 I founded Reflections Psychotherapy: Seeing, Freeing, Being. This name mirrors many aspects of my treatment approach.

"Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.” This quote by Sigmund Freud exemplifies what therapy means to me and it's an honor to be a part of your healing journey. Therapy is a dynamic, collaborative process and that's why I choose to incorporate different therapeutic techniques into my work. Therapy shouldn't be a "one size fits all" experience so we will work together to tailor a plan to put you on the path to healing.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
