My Approach to Helping
As a licensed clinical psychologist I specialize in working with clients who experience distress related to food, body image, perfectionism, or the pressures of high achievement. Some of my clients suffer from eating disorders, anxiety, or depression and are looking for an expert to help them overcome the difficulties they face in their current life. Other clients have noticed a pattern of feeling less than fulfilled - even though by all accounts they are successful 'on paper'. They tend to be held back by perfectionism, self-criticism, and prioritizing others.
I work closely with my clients to develop better, more adaptive coping skills, understand the patterns that keep them stuck, and develop a solid plan to achieving their personal and professional goals. Therapy is a two-way street, that requires a client and therapist to work together as a team. Finding a good fit is important to feel safe, understood, and validated.
