It is remarkable how patients begin to feel happier and important when they stop ignoring their physical and emotional needs. I love working with patients that seek to create a balance between their body, mind and spirit. I enjoy being flexible and learning what each individual is comfortable with, and work from their baseline to establish reasonable goals.

Finding the appropriate therapist for you can the make the difference in being able to benefit from therapy. With the appropriate tools and insight, a therapist can help uncover resources you already own, or are able to develop as part of a deeper understanding of self. I believe a therapeutic relationship, one that is built on trust, honesty, genuineness, open mindedness and acceptance, has the ability to create meaningful and lasting change in a person's life.

I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, disordered eating, and related mental health issues for women including depression, anxiety, body image struggles, self-harm, and relationship distress. Therapy requires both the therapist and the client to be active - I think of it as a joint venture of taking on your unwanted symptoms together. The process of recovery and therapy may feel daunting to you. A part of you may want freedom from your symptoms and yet another part seems to be holding on to your current lifestyle. These are normal feelings and talking about this dilemma is a good place to start.
Couples seeking a deeper connection in their relationship with their partner need to learn how to speak about and listen to their partner's dreams, inner world, and viewpoint. Often couples feel a sense of disconnection and distance from their partner, who was once their friend and admirer. Couples also want to stop feeling stuck in the same cycles of arguing and miscommunication. They want to start resolving problems and work towards compromise with each other. They want their dreams to come true and create a sense of shared meaning together. If you have lost your partner's love map, I am here to help you find it.
Successful therapy is created through a mutually respectful relationship between the client and therapist. I believe this is achieved when the counselor is genuine, honest, accepting, curious and skilled. My ideal client is ready to change, willing to trust, and able to explore the past to gain insights. With me, therapy is interactive and dynamic---not: "you talk, I passively listen!" I want to understand how your culture, history, faith and family patterns affect you. Additionally, I believe in the restorative power of humor, creativity, and spirituality. If you're ready to heal and learn concrete skills, contact me today!
