It is my passion to help people recover from eating disorders and OCD.
From the outside-it might look like you have everything together. However, you can't stop thinking about food and your body. Your life is starting to revolve around planning binges and purges, restricting, compulsive exercise and/or body image distress. Or, perhaps you are becoming consumed with intrusive, dark, scary, weird thoughts that trigger anxiety. Thoughts that won't seem to leave you alone and feel too embarrassing to tell others about. You might feel unsure of reaching out for help, but deep down you know something needs to change. Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, anxiety, trauma or OCD- I can help!

Courage, dear heart, as life will present you with surprises and in time, you will manage each one with bravery. Our families can push our boundaries; our relationships can challenge us; and our careers can stretch us so thin. Negative self-thoughts can keep us in our heads and repeating old patterns can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Past traumas can intrude our present; social injustices can break our community down; and gender and cultural inequalities can be an exhausting battle. Our self-care can plummet and suddenly we are not our first priority. However, you are leaning in today and making an investment in YOU!

Working in the Mental Health field for 30 years and being a Social Worker in California for over 18 years, I have had the opportunity to work with people who have a variety of disabilities, lifestyles, and ages. In the more recent years I have been working with older adults and people with different disabilities. I work primarily with a combination of various practice theories/models including but not limited to the Recovery Model, the Strengths Model, Solution Focused Therapy, and the Crisis Intervention Model as well. I provide ongoing assessments of everyone I work with to choose which theory/model each one would benefit from.

I am passionate about supporting women and teens facing the challenges of life in a way that helps them find sustained change. It is hard to live in this world and not question if our bodies, stories, and voices are “good enough.” We wonder if it is possible for us to be okay with who we are, and make different choices than we’ve made in the past. We often make decisions that are rooted in insecurity, leaving us trapped in anxiety. I value helping women learn to understand and respect their whole story on their own terms. Together we can define your own goals for change.
