I am a licensed clinical psychologist that works with individuals & families struggling with eating disorders & comorbid issues, including, depression, anxiety, dual diagnosis, relationship issues & life transitions. From a systemic, psycho-dynamic foundation, I focus on past & present relationships and how behavioral patterns evolve over time. I believe the therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for the client to explore, uncover, and discover emotions. This allows the client to build trust, to take emotional risks, to challenge maladaptive coping in order to create new, more effective ways of managing painful emotions.

I have worked with the eating disorder/dual diagnosis population for the past 8+ years & have a strong foundation in navigating the complex treatment process. I am knowledgeable in dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) & believe DBT is a very helpful intervention tool for eating disorders and other presenting problems.

The office is located in a central location and has ample free street parking. Accessible via public transporation. Red line, Ashland & North Ave. bus
