" It can be scary to reach out to a therapist because you want to make sure you can find someone who can connect with you or understand your family dynamics. I enjoy working with preteens, teens, young adults and parents. If you are a parent of a teen in therapy I will keep you involved in the process. If you are a parent, family or an individual who is seeking a therapist that places a high value on providing a safe judgment free zone I look forward to working with you and guiding you to realize your capacity for growth.

"Therapy is a partnership that grows in an atmosphere of safety and acceptance. It allows one to rediscover the parts of selves which may have been disowned; to learn new skills to handle grief and distress; to build healthier, more nurturing relationships; and to gain access to one's own direct experience of the world. I nurture this collaboration with clients and recognize that within each of us there exists a deeper wisdom that, given adequate support, naturally moves toward healing and integration."

When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma.

"People rarely talk openly about the realities of pregnancy, fertility challenges, adoption, and parenting. No matter how prepared to grow your family you felt, you now feel painfully aware of how little you can know and how challenging the transitions can be. You believe that everyone judges you, and, let’s face it, you judge yourself. You compare yourself to people on social media, in articles, and around you.
