As a previous clinical director of an partial hospitalization eating disorder unit, and having myself fully recovered from many years ago, I am keenly aware of the magnitude of successes and failures one feels when they are faced with this disorder. It can take over your life, spinning you our of control and physically threatening your health for years to come. But there is help. With Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy, DBT, Mindfulness and weekly goal setting, your life can be in control again.

Eating disorders are not just about body image, they can become negative coping skills and tools for a person to navigate a life they feel is out of their control. Whether it is anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating or exercising, all these behaviors come down to the same common denominator - self esteem and attempt at control of what seems unmanageable. Let me help you identify the underlying causes of these behaviors and work towards a healthier way of life.
