My approach is gentle but direct and I place importance on honesty and accountability. My work is focused on addressing current thoughts and behaviors through underlying issues as well as exploring how past experiences affect you and your current relationships. During our session, I work from a psychodynamic perspective while including Existential interventions, Cognitive Behavioral Theory, and Family Systems concepts. My goal is to provide a safe space that facilitates change and growth, and a place that encourages healing. My hope is to leave you with skills that will better serve you in dealing with current life events and relationships.

I have 15 years of experience working with eating disorders and co-occurring disorders in inpatient, residential, and day treatment. I have gained an extensive experience while working with individuals and families struggling with eating disorders, chemical dependency, self-harm, trauma, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and other co-occurring mental disorders.
