About

I work with adults and teens with mood disorders, anxiety, and eating disorders as well as couples experiencing relationship difficulties. I value the relationship that I establish with each person and believe it is the key to progress and success in therapy. To this end, I ask my clients for feedback so I can improve my approach based upon their goals and then incorporate this into sessions. Please give my office a call to experience therapy that works.
My specialty area is the treatment of eating disorders, body image, and disordered eating. I use a weight neutral (Health At Every Size) and Intuitive Eating approach as I believe that our bodies know how to eat and have a natural set point that diets and "wellness" programs disrupt.
If you or someone you love is struggling with your relationship with food and your body, feel free to contact me.
