I am a Licensed Psychologist and Certified Health Coach with a broad range of experience in private practice, schools and universities, a private psychiatric hospital, and community mental health clinics. I believe that a strong, collaborative relationship between the client and therapist is instrumental in making change and growth possible. In a warm and caring environment, I help clients move forward with hope despite sometimes difficult circumstances; improve relationship and communication skills; and mobilize their strengths toward achieving life goals. I am insurance eligible, and many clients receive out-of-network coverage for their sessions.

Welcome! I help teens and adults with all types of eating disorders , disordered eating, mood and anxiety issues, and life transitions. Given the world we live in, it can be hard sometimes to sort out "normal" attempts to be healthy and fit vs disordered patterns of eating, exercising or thoughts about food and weight. Your eating issues may have suddenly become problematic or they may have been around "forever". Either way, you deserve to get help to bring balance and flexibility back into your eating and thoughts about food and your body. Learning how to manage mood changes, anxiety and stress during life changes is key.

Through a variety of different therapy approaches and techniques, we will set clear goals and tackle the obstacles, internal and external, which get in the way of your accomplishment of your goals and keep you from the life you want.

I specialize in FBT for families of individuals who have Anorexia Nervosa and CBT for individuals with BED.
Years of research indicate the biggest predictor of therapeutic success is the relationship developed between the therapist and client. My clients joke that I am not your traditional therapist who sits back and nods. I see myself as a "change agent" whose style is interactive, warm and direct. My philosophy is that you should leave every session with the feeling that you have moved forward with your personal goals.
