There are times when each of us needs support as we navigate the challenges of life. When our circumstances seem overwhelming, it takes genuine courage to seek help and learn the skills we need to improve our situation.

My goal is to establish a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients that is characterized by empathy, trust, and respect. This allows the people in my care to have the freedom to explore their concerns and work towards resolving their issues. I offer a comfortable space where individuals in treatment may deepen their personal insight, approach their concerns from new angles, and develop the tools they need to make lasting positive changes.

I strive to build a therapeutic relationship of trust, empathy, and respect where clients can explore their life experiences and the influence they have on combating or maintaining problems. It is my desire as a therapist to create a space where clients have the resources and support to learn more about themselves, begin to view problems in more effective ways, and learn the tools to make positive changes in their lives.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am certified in CBT+ and have extensive training treating mood disorders, trauma, and behavioral issues. Additionally, I am trained in relational approaches and help my clients have healthier, more fulfilling relationships with themselves and others. I have spent the last few years specializing in eating disorders and working in out-patient and intensive-program settings as an individual and family therapist. I am trained in FBT (Family-Based Treatment), the recommended treatment approach for adolescent eating disorders by the American Psychological Association.
