About

Would you like to let go of concerns about your weight and body image? Is emotional eating one of your primary coping mechanisms? Many women, across the life span, struggle with issues around food, their bodies, and self confidence. Stress, all-or-nothing thinking, and perfectionism, among other issues, can all get in the way of living more fully. I work holistically with women, as I believe that all aspects of our lives, from sleep and nutrition to relationships or past trauma, are integrally related. We will work together to develop the insight, skills, and tools you'll need to achieve your goals.
I have experience working with adolescents and women transitioning through the important stages of their lives from their developing identities through marriage, motherhood, and menopause. All of these stages can present challenges, as well as opportunities to grow and to shape the lives we want to live.
I provide a safe, therapeutic space that is just for you, so you can explore the ways you want to grow and change. For many years, I worked at MIT and in private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Since 2010, I have lived in California and specialized in working with adolescents and women around issues of food, health, weight and body image.
