The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

Food can be associated with love, family, and joy. Other times, food is associated with anxiety, frustration, depression, boredom, self-doubt and other negative emotions. If eating is constantly on your mind, if others encourage you to "stop obsessing over food," or if you believe your desire to eat is based on emotions rather than conquering hunger then I strongly believe we can work as a team to get your life back on track.
