I am especially passionate about treating eating disorders. I see clients of varying age groups with a particular focus on adolescents, transitional age youth and young adults. Changing one's behaviors and psychological states is a process and I aim to meet clients where they are at in terms of their readiness for change. In addition to specific graduate training and many years working at Stanford Health's inpatient eating disorder unit, I also have lived experience dealing with disordered eating, and find that my own recovery journey benefits clients and serves as a reminder that recovery is attainable.

Let’s be honest. Life can be messy. If you’re seeking help exploring personal issues, navigating a difficult relationship, or finding parenting overwhelming, perhaps I can help. My approach as a holistic strength based therapist is guided by a fierce belief renewal is available for all who seek it out. It’s not easy work. My questions tend to go deep, I'm direct, and my own journey has reinforced a truth everyone needs a place to be seen, heard, and honored without judgement. We’ll likely travel difficult personal terrain, probably find time to laugh, and may get stumped together...which can be a vital part of the healing process.

Choosing to begin psychotherapy opens yourself to the experience of self-discovery, reflection, and growth. This decision may feel exhilarating or scary, as self-work often requires courage and a willingness to examine aspects of life which may have gone unattended for some time. But truly, beginning psychotherapy reflects an inner desire and commitment to enhance the parts of yourself and your life which are working well, and to explore, and ultimately make changes in the parts you would like to be different.

We are living in a surreal time. Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.
