My mission is to empower you to define and claim the authentic, peaceful life you were born to lead; letting go of self-judgment, guilt, and maladaptive patterns to uncover strength and resilience. I believe in the transformational, healing power of a trusted therapeutic relationship. I possess advanced training and expertise in a variety of evidence-based modalities. Collaborative assessments and thoughtful, intentional treatment planning yield a customized course of action tailored to match your presenting problem and case disposition. I look forward to working with you, and am honored to play a role in your unfolding story!
I am an internationally-recognized expert in eating disorders and the founder of LIFT, a multidisciplinary, specialized psychotherapy group providing personalized care with exceptional results to individuals, couples, and families since 2010. I am the only Fairfield Co mental health practitioner credentialed as a certified eating disorder specialist.
I've honed my clinical dossier working with a range of presenting issues, incl a) intrapsychic difficulties like anxiety, depression, and self-esteem, b) interpersonal challenges such as parent-child relational issues, couples conflict. Clients who work with me report a level of immediate comfort, fresh insights, breakthroughs from entrenched patterns.
