We all face challenging moments in our lives—whether we are experiencing anxiety or sadness, difficulty coping with life events, conflictual relationships, or a desire for a greater self-esteem.  As a therapist, I can help you identify your unique gifts and needs, free you from maladaptive patterns, examine your past, and allow you to take charge of your life story. The power of therapy and our therapeutic relationship can get you moving. After all, sometimes we need an objective listener, someone to validate us, challenge us, and offer new perspectives. The same applies to kids and I often utilize play for assessing and treatment.

If you believe that eating disorders are incurable, you have been misled by one of many misconceptions about these disorders. Eating disorders are 100% curable in 80% of cases, when treated in an effective and timely manner. Anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder erode and fragment an individual's sense of Self, impairing self-care. self-regulation and self-esteem. Effective recovery re-awakens and integrates the patient's fragmented self, creating a sustained sense of empowered self-confidence in all life spheres...beyond eating and weight-control. Successful recovery offers a life-changing investment now, and for the future.

Understanding current coping strategies and the ways in which they may have been useful in the past, but are no longer serving you well is my focus.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 10 years of experience in mental health and wellness. My passion stems from wanting to help others learn new ways of coping with their environment and garnering new skills to help manage current life stressors and hurdles. My belief is that from early childhood we learn healthy, and sometimes unhealthy, strategies to manage challenges. Coping styles, especially maladaptive ones, work for a period of time, but may become ineffective. When this occurs, people often seek therapy. My job as a therapist is to help you learn, and implement, healthier coping strategies.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships.

Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Highland Park and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
