My Approach to Helping

My mission, now that I am working in both Prince William and Fairfax County is to offer evidenced-based treatment to individuals and families impacted by an eating disorder and commit to the prevention, education, and treatment of those living in Northern Virginia. For too long services were limited in this area and I am very excited to have offices in both Gainesville and Reston. I will be sharing an office with a family therapist and nutritionist, both of which are specialized in the treatment of eating disorders. I believe it is imperative to work together with my client, their family, and a multidisciplinary team of professionals when treating eating disorders and through that collaboration, I hope to make a difference within the field of mental health.

I have been working in the field of eating disorders since 2008 and I am committed to help client’s understand and fully overcome their eating disorder's so that they have peace within their mind, body, and spirit. I earned her Bachelors of Arts at Rutgers University and Masters of Science at Columbia University. In 2017 I became a certified eating disorder specialist through the International Academy of Eating Disorder Professionals and a CEDS supervisor in 2018. I am currently working toward becoming a supervisor and am excited to be a leader in the field. I am energetic, passionate, and dedicated to empowering individuals and families who are impacted by eating disorders. My primary methods are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Family Based Therapy. All in all, I am committed to the prevention, research, and evidence-based interventions for full recovery among individuals and families who are affected by eating disorders.
