My Approach to Helping

I am devoted to helping patients improve their quality of life. My style is direct, dynamic and change-oriented, combining compassionate understanding of present problems with enthusiasm and hope for future goals.

My view is holistic, striving for balance of body and mind. My strategies encompass emotional, cognitive, behavioral and spiritual aspects, and involve strength-based, solutions-focused principles.

More Info About My Practice

We are a small-scale, big-hearted, female-owned, dedicated collaboration of independent contractors who support each other in healing work.

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

I have 18 years of experience treating Eating Disorders, Pre and Post-Bariatric patients, and Weight Management concerns. More recently, I have interest and training in Couples Communication. In addition, due to my personal experience, I have a dedication to the support of Cancer Patients, Autism Parenting and Dementia Caregiving.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Getting to know your story. It is so inspiring and an honor to be with you through the transformation process.

My Role as a Therapist

is an equal, authentic partner in the healing process. Providing support and guidance while questioning and challenging unhelpful ways of thinking and coping, as well as finding more effective strategies to improve your quality of life.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

I get it. Sharing your struggles with a total stranger can be intimidating, but also rejuvenating. I believe the session is your safe space and you get to decide how best to use it. I will ask questions, provide observations, ideas, suggestions and even give guidance, but ultimately you are in charge of the process and the timing. Healing lies in the courage to participate and the connection created.
