At New Heights we focus on making the process as easy as possible, from helping connect you to the best clinician within the practice to providing the most advanced treatment options we can. You matter and we want to help you achieve not just your mental health goals but making joy a part of your life.

I specialize in working with children and teens ages 8-18 with eating disorders, specifically anorexia nervosa.
I know you have tried everything you could. You’ve done the research and reached out for help. You may have blamed yourself, asking ‘Why didn’t I see this sooner?’ ‘Why didn’t I notice they were losing weight?’, ‘Why is it still so hard, we’ve been going to therapy? Or ‘they’re eating more, why are things still so tense?’ If you are feeling lost, hopeless, frustrated, angry, confused and discouraged, you are not alone. If you feel like no one understands and nothing has helped, you are not alone.

I have experience working with children, adolescents and their families in an outpatient and school based settings.
Feeling anxious and overwhelmed may seem like your normal, but I assure you that you were not created to live that way. Peace and contentment is very possible given the right skills and support. Perhaps feeling stuck or trapped is where you have been lately and it is affecting other areas of your life where you are not living as your best self. Relationships can be hard especially if we have stressors weighing us down so we feel even more defeated. Feeling good about yourself and others is very possible as most people were not given the coping strategies needed and survival is where many people are at. You don't have to be.

This multi-systemic approach to therapy significantly increases success and overarching treatment goals.
