Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

During my own personal journey in seeking a therapist, I found it difficult to connect with a counselor in whom I felt safe to tell my most personal concerns. Finding the right help didn't come easy. So, after 25 years in the medical profession, I answered a heart felt calling to provide the counseling I had long searched for. Even with all of the wonderful theories I learned and now practice, the most important element in counseling is the trust relationship between the therapist and the client. My goal is to make your therapeutic experience a meaningful connection with someone who truly cares.

Mental illness or life stressors can distract us from living healthy and productive lives. It can also negatively impact relationships that are important to us. Our past negative experiences can often dictate our future if not addressed. Often times, therapy helps improve our relationships with those people with care and love. It helps to have a safe place to process your feelings, work on relationships, and better understand patterns of behavior when feeling overwhelmed or stuck. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where you can communicate your concerns openly and learn tools to aid in overcoming stressors.

Trauma can leave you feeling alone, hopeless, angry, and afraid. You didn’t ask for trauma, but now you are left to pick up the pieces. The thing you want most is to go back to how things were before the trauma but you can’t seem to rewind the clock. Unfortunately, this desire to time travel and change the past or control the future keeps us even more stuck in trauma and PTSD because it gets in the way of confronting these demons. Add to this struggle the difficulties of finding a good trauma therapist and healing can feel impossible. I am here to help you overcome these hurdles to recovery so you can begin living the life you want.
