Binge eating disorder (BED), emotional eating and and yo-yo dieting are problems in and of themselves, and they can also be signs that a deeper issue is at work. Often people who are dealing with these behaviors are also battling shame, anxiety, trauma, depression, isolation, and negative thoughts and feelings about themselves. I support people who have a difficult relationship with food and their bodies in changing on multiple levels. We use effective and proven methods to reduce bingeing and emotional eating, while simultaneously working on a deeper level to transform the way that you relate to yourself as a whole person.

Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.

As a psychotherapist and photographer, I use my own curiosity to cultivate self-curiosity in others. I think what keeps us stuck or disconnected or depressed or anxious are the stories we have about ourselves and others and the world. Our stories influence how we feel and how we behave. Psychotherapy (and photography) can challenge those stories, providing us with new perspectives where emotional and behavioral change can then happen.

I focus on creating a safe, collaborative, and trusting therapeutic relationship. I base my work on the belief that we are all affected by relationships. This can be relationships with family, partners, friends, co-workers, or even the relationship we have with ourself. How do we repair these relationships? Compassion, empathy, and understanding for ourselves and others. Sometimes other parts of us that feel anger, fear, or sadness can get in the way of this understanding. Psychotherapy can be a way to move through painful emotions and reconnect to your confidence, courage, and creativity.

Many people suffer under the weight of their sadness, fear, anger, and pain; others struggle to feel anything at all. Our self-esteem, relationships, or work can suffer as old cognitive, emotional, and behavioral paradigms are applied to new situations, often outside of our awareness. While it may seem daunting, exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences within the context of a safe therapeutic relationship can increase your access to, your awareness of, and your sense of control over your internal world. Through this process, you will find your strength, resilience, agency, and, ultimately, your freedom to more effectively shape your external world.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 20036, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 20036 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20036 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20036

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20036 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20036 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20036 or family therapy in 20036.
