People often go into therapy feeling a great deal of shame, guilt and with secrets. It's important to me that the therapeutic environment I provide allow people to feel they are part of a non-judgmental, safe and warm environment. The goal of therapy is to help clients make behavioral changes and increase insight into the cause of those behaviors and the purpose they serve. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, emotional/stress eating, body image, depression and anxiety. In addition, I run groups for individuals struggling with binge eating disorder.

Group counseling consists of analyzing the medical/emotional consequences of binge eating, support, coping skills, and ways to make changes to improve mental and physical health. Prior to starting private practice, I worked at an eating disorder center for several years. To decrease and manage anxiety, depression and PTSD I teach meditation and mindfulness skills.

In addition to eating disorders, my practice focuses on grief counseling, depression, anxiety, assertiveness, relaxation, and PTSD for those in the military. I work with both adolescents and adults, males and females.
