I believe that people possess inner strength and wisdom, allowing them to change and heal. My goal as a therapist is to help clients discover their true potential and lead a life of greater ease, fulfillment and meaning. My integrative approach to therapy brings together mindfulness, acceptance, compassion and attachment-based therapies to help clients gain self-awareness, insight, and new ways of relating to themselves, others and situations.

I am a certified eating disorder specialist (CEDS) and I specialize in helping women overcome eating, food, weight, exercise, perfectionism and body image issues.. Whether you are in recovery from eating disorder, emotionally or compulsively overeating, engaging in excessive exercise or other compensatory behaviors, I can support you to work through the underlying issues related to food, eating, body image and weight, as well as assist you in building the coping skills to help keep you on the road to recovery.
