During many years of private practice, I have helped hundreds of clients overcome feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that are some of the consequences of struggling with eating disorders, drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring disorders. Having 23 years of personal recover from anorexia and bulimia myself, I treat individuals in a nonjudgmental manner. Empowering clients to participants in their own recovery, planning their future goals, happiness and overall lives. I believe that these are complex disorders and need to be treated as such. I work along side nutritionists and doctors to afford you the best outcome.

My passion is helping individuals with Eating Disorders, co-existing disorders and trauma's. My specialties include: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binging, Depression and Anxiety, trauma and Grief/ Loss. I use CBT, EMDR, Narrative therapy, self awareness, and Gestalt treatments.

I tailor each of my sessions to meet the needs of you, the individual. Each client helps me co-create their own individual goals and treatment plan. I believe that there is recovery available to everyone, regardless of where your low has taken you; as long as you have willingness.
