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 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 have worked in a variety of clinical settings including group practice, behavioral health outpatient centers, assessments, higher levels of care for addictions and eating disorders and professional relations.
All of us experience struggles, trials, and set-backs that impact our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. When our functioning in career or academics, personal life, or relationships begins to be negatively impacted, it is a valuable time to reach out for additional support. We are not intended to navigate life's challenges alone. I understand the value of human connection in empowering us to move through and sustain progress and recovery from our unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I look forward to supporting and partnering with you, and commend you on taking the first step toward change, in this moment.

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.

I am interested in working with adults, couples and families and specialize in working with trauma, postpartum depression, eating disorders /body image conflicts, life transitions, anxiety, depression, sex therapy, and relationship dissatisfaction.
Therapy can be about working to resolve ongoing pain, or it can simply be about self-exploration and growth. No matter what brings you to therapy, it is my belief that a trusting relationship between the client and therapist is the starting point for progress and is essential to achieving long-lasting change. My goal is to make all my clients feel comfortable and welcomed when working together. I understand that the ability to reflect and be comfortable in sharing the most intimate details about your life is not an easy task. My goal is to create a safe space for my clients to share their stories and to help manage their concerns.

Eating Disorders Therapists
Eating disroders 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).
