I have experience working with eating disorders , body image, trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD, and mood disorders through talk therapy and dance therapy.
Holistic healing can be the start to your journey into self-discovery, growth, and connection to the present moment. Talk therapy, in addition to movement interventions, will unlock the person you are meant to be. Connecting mind, body, and spirit will ignite empowerment and wholeness from within as we rewrite your narrative. What is beautiful about this work is that it is for everyone and anyone! Whatever your struggle may be, I am here as a dance/movement therapist to provide safety as we discover your passions, values and goals. We will collaborate together for long term wellness.

I worked as a staff psychologist in the Eating Disorders Program at Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation for several years, where I treated individuals in therapy, conducted group therapy, taught seminars and supervised psychology externs.
I treat older adolescents, adults and couples in psychotherapy. I use an interactive, psychodynamic approach in which I help clients understand how problems in their early relationships with their parents and siblings affect their current intimate and work relationships. I help individuals discover and work through underlying issues which are causing anxiety, depression, or other unwanted behaviors, such as eating disorders or relationship disturbances.

I work with a wide-ranging group of young adults and adults struggling with full-spectrum eating disorders including anorexia , bulimia , binge eating disorder, and body image concerns, as well as depression, anxiety, trauma, and navigating life changes/periods of transition. Making peace with your body is a radical act in the context of a culture obsessed with dieting, weight, and body size. I work from a Health at Every Size (HAES) framework and believe all humans and all bodies are deeply worthy of compassionate and skilled treatment. I also have a special passion for working with young adults navigating emerging adulthood.

I am a skilled therapist, I specialize in working with individuals with eating disorders and addiction. I believe entering into a therapeutic relationship takes courage. You've been turning to a substance: alcohol, drugs, food and food- compulsive overeating, restricting, purging- and it's no longer "working." Profound shame accompanies these illnesses and the shame interferes asking for help. These are illnesses that annihilate all that is valuable from one's life, therefore asking for help is vital, recovery cannot be done alone. Individuals often are facing co occurring disorders which need to be simultaneously addressed.

I treat people of diverse backgrounds and identities who are struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, trauma, eating disorders , and body image.
I can help you get off that annoying wire hamster wheel you've been running around in, watching the wheels spin faster and yet going nowhere, staying stuck. When we get caught up looking for answers and solutions, we feel hopeless. It's easy to forget that we humans are strong, brave, and resilient beings, capable of growth and change. In treatment, I will join you in facing the challenge of letting go of the search for answers or a quick fix, in favor of finding freedom and fulfillment in life.

If you find yourself facing challenges related to mood concerns, body image, eating disorders , trauma, and substance use, my help and support are available to you.
Navigating life's set backs, challenges, and adversities can absolutely take a toll on our wellbeing and ability to function, which is why it is important to know that you do not have to work through these concerns alone. I believe in the power of healing through promoting self-awareness, autonomy and empowerment, and also in people's strength to move towards change. Though suffering is a part of life, something that all humans share, working to manifest helpful and sustainable coping mechanisms, and skills that will work to serve you long term makes a difference in the quality of life a person experiences.

My area of expertise is in working with individuals with eating disorders /disordered eating as well as individuals struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
In times of stress, it can feel as though it's you against the world and that control is limited. My goal is to foster a sense of both acceptance of these situations and commitment to tackling them in an adaptive way while also exploring how previous experiences have shaped the way you approach life. I approach therapy in a warm, non-judgmental way so as to foster a comfortable setting for clients that encourages communication. With this, continuous effort is made to facilitate affirmative, validating, and open dialogue. Above all else, I place emphasis on showing up as authentically as possible in the therapy room.

I specialize in eating disorders , families impacted by DCFS intervention, non-suicidal self-injury, anxiety, depression, recovery from childhood abuse, relationship issues, and parenting issues.
Making that first appointment takes courage. You may feel defeated or hopeless. Your coping mechanisms have sort of worked, but you know you are more than this outer shell. You want to do more than just "survive," and you need a safe place to explore how to get there. My job is to take that journey with you, to help remove self-blame, to foster appreciation for your strengths, and to help you find the answers within. My approach is flexible and my goal is to help you connect to all facets of yourself--body, mind, emotion, culture, and spirit.

Eating Disorders Therapists
