Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

We often face challenges because we retain habitual patterns of relating to people and reacting to events. Our early experiences set expectations that can limit our abilities to respond to stressful events and to notice new opportunities. With counseling, we can revise unhelpful patterns and even repair old wounds they mask and reflect. Then we can feel freer to make healthier choices for ourselves and recover more easily from losses and setbacks we experience. I work with adults and teens (sexual/gender and racial/ethnic minorities, students, social justice activists). Anti-oppression education and training inform my work.

During my own personal journey in seeking a therapist, I found it difficult to connect with a counselor in whom I felt safe to tell my most personal concerns. Finding the right help didn't come easy. So, after 25 years in the medical profession, I answered a heart felt calling to provide the counseling I had long searched for. Even with all of the wonderful theories I learned and now practice, the most important element in counseling is the trust relationship between the therapist and the client. My goal is to make your therapeutic experience a meaningful connection with someone who truly cares.

My practice centers around providing clients with the skills that they need to thrive in the face of stressful situations. Prior to entering private practice, I worked as a clinical psychologist on the spinal cord injury unit at TIRR. These individuals would have never otherwise sought mental health care but were faced with one of the most stressful and challenging experiences of their lives. My role was to help these individuals to effectively cope with serious, adverse medical events and to live happy, fulfilling lives. Likewise, in my private practice, I strive to help clients successfully navigate complex situations.

Past and present experiences, patterns that you can't seem to break out of, childhood traumas, family influences, abuse (sexual, emotional or physical), post-traumatic stress issues, or your own expectations and anxieties. All of these factors can affect your relationships with family, friends and romantic partners.

My specialty is intimacy disorders including sex/love addiction & avoidance. Bad relationships can ruin your life & your happiness; however, relationships can be turned around. When addiction is present, the chances of real intimacy are small. Love addiction is a powerful & debilitating disorder that is very serious & potentially life threatening. Developmental trauma (also known as family of origin trauma or codependence) is a set up for self esteem & intimacy issues. If left untreated developmental trauma can lead to depression, anxiety, addiction & physical illness (Pia Mellody's). You're not alone!
