I work with children, teens, and young adults who struggle with food, body image, anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
If you or your loved one is struggling with eating, sleep, motivation, or schoolwork, these can be indicators that life is out of balance. These are common signs of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, or PTSD. Having a child who is struggling to keep afloat can feel overwhelming, and recovery may feel like an insurmountable task. I provide evidence-based treatment for children, adolescents and young adults using Family Based Treatment (FBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Intuitive Eating, and CPT. I am here to guide you through the stages of treatment towards recovery and improvement of your life and family functioning.
