I have a sub-specialization in Reproductive Health--assisting with issues of infertility, pregnancy loss, perinatal mood disorders, birth trauma or other reproductive concerns.
My specialty is centered around those who are undergoing life transitions, such as going from adolescence to adulthood; transitioning from college; building a family; or other adjustment issues with which people may struggle. Whether I'm working with an individual, couple, or a group, I continually seek out feedback as to how treatment is progressing for them. Therapy should be an effective collaborative effort. Additionally, I incorporate mind and body integration techniques, such as yoga and relaxation, which can relieve stress, anxiety and be helpful for numerous other issues.

I see children with anxiety, depression, trauma, selective mutism, low self-esteem, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder.
Making the decision to help a child or teen who is struggling academically, behaviorally, socially and/or emotionally may be the most important decision you make. I see each child/teen as a puzzle. Sometimes the pieces fit together perfectly and other times it is necessary to work really hard to find the right piece to complete the puzzle. I use a variety of techniques - play therapy, sand therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy. I believe that a child is part of a larger system, including parents, siblings, and schools. I strive to work with all aspects of a child's world.

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.
