I use a direct, compassionate, and non-judgmental approach to help you create long-term, sustainable changes. Change begins with learning to effectively cope with difficult life circumstances, painful emotions, traumatic memories and distressing thoughts. We can build your awareness, insight and understanding of yourself and your behaviors, creating movement towards self-acceptance and positive long-term change. What will you spend your time, energy and focus on once free of self-destructive, critical, and demeaning self-talk and behaviors? While it can feel impossible to imagine a life without these behaviors it is possible.

My specialties include working with individuals dealing with Eating Disorders, Addictive and Compulsory behaviors, and Self-Harm behaviors. By increasing structure, improving communication, and developing more effective coping strategies I will help you move toward a life congruent with your values.

I utilize evidence based treatments such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness based therapies; emphasizing choice, resiliency and authenticity to help move you towards your goals and live the life you want to live. I accept BCBS PPO and have competitive cash rates.
