My specialization is the treatment of eating disorders.  I have also worked with general anxiety, depression, grief and loss for many years.  Working in a variety of mental health settings including hospitals and out-patient mental health clinics has provided me with great opportunity to help many people.  I have successfully worked with teens, young adults, and seasoned adults. I am honored to become a part of my clients journey of change.  I value each client as an individual and look forward to engaging with you.
I am a warm, compassionate therapist with a great sense of humor. My objective is always to create an open, relaxed atmosphere in which you can feel comfortable and welcome.  I am interested in your story, to learn about who you are, what you have experienced, and how you would envision your future. This process helps assess and clarify the nature of your struggles and what you would like to change. We will identify your strengths and the resources available to you.  In our work together, we may also use different strategies to help with symptom management, change behavior, and provide relief. Some of these tools may include cognitive-behavioral skills, self-soothing techniques, as an example. We start where you are, assessing what your needs are right now. Together, we co-create a plan for you to feel better and set reasonable goals for change. The journey will be unique for each person.    
  Coming to a decision to enter treatment is a challenging and courageous first step. Finding someone to work with can be an even more daunting task. Nevertheless, dare to become someone who is not defined by appearance.  Expand beyond your shell to see who you really are.   I believe each of us is unique, and yet, we all want to enjoy our lives.  We need to continue to evolve as life evolves. Navigating this path can be stressful and sometimes we need help.  If you are troubled by an eating disorder, eating issues, and general mental health concerns, please engage with me to find a way to a healthier you.

Therapy is an opportunity to feel better and improve areas of your life that trouble you.  By taking stock, exploring the nature of your struggles, you grow into a deeper understanding of what is really going on, and a new perspective emerges with more options for living life differently.  From this point, some reasonable goals can be defined and set in motion. This process establishes a foundation to begin to free yourself from limiting beliefs, patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. You will develop new skills and strategies to improve coping, modify and change troubling behaviors, and feel a greater sense of contentment. Therapy helps develop an improved sense of self and well-being. Often people report feeling empowered and more in touch with who they are.
Don't let your struggles define you, your life, and your future any longer.  I am happy to help you find your way to a healthier you.  I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your interest,
