If you find yourself on this site looking for a therapist, then the answer is yes! It is the right time for you to focus on healing for yourself! I specialize in working with people who are looking for help healing anxiety, depression, body image and relationship challenges. The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself, and my background in attachment theory, cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness and the well known trauma treatment called EMDR gives me a unique perspective about the challenges all humans face. I offer online and in person therapy and I can't wait to hear from you!
I am trained in CBT and DBT, specializing in additional elements of self acceptance and mindfulness. I emphasize awareness of thoughts and emotional responses in the body. With this awareness, you will learn effective new life skills that you can immediately apply. For those suffering from trauma, I am a trained EMDR practitioner.
I provide screening and treatment of Eating Disorders. There are several different types of eating disorders. An early screening can identify disordered eating and body image. I know it can be challenging to take the first step to get help but you are not alone. I am the Clinical Director at a local Eating Disorder Treatment Center.

I love helping women learn about the high return they can get by investing in a self compassionate, non-judgemental stance. Society has placed an impossible standard on our outside appearance and performance as women working inside or outside the home. I like to provide a safe place for women to fully explore how to heal the symptoms that are limiting them from living to their full potential.

At your first session, based on completion of user friendly electronic health record forms, we will have a conversation to explore what brought you to therapy and what you want to accomplish. I have both a cognitive behavioral lens that will help you build practical skills; and an experiential, somatic, trauma-informed lens that will help identify the root causes of your current challenges.
