Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

I foster a warm, supportive, and productive therapeutic environment for my clients. The choice to attend counseling can be a very vulnerable and difficult decision for people. I help my clients feel comfortable with the therapeutic process by treating them with respect, compassion, and honesty in a judgement free environment. I have experience working in the community with adults and geriatrics that have severe and persistent mental illness. I have an integrative approach to counseling, meaning that I draw from each theoretical orientation, but I primarily work from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach.

Recovering from an eating disorder and/or severe trauma can frequently be difficult. My broad training and extensive experience enables me to work with patients in a variety of ways including traditional therapeutic approaches, the incorporation of art therapy as a component of treatment, and the use of EMDR. I work with each individual patient to determine the type of approach that best matches her personality and therapeutic needs. I have been one of the first psychotherapists to make use of expressive arts and EMDR in the treatment of eating disorders.
