As a licensed mental health counselor, I work to provide a safe place for my clients to explore their life's stories, learn about themselves, and progress towards their goals. When therapy concludes, my hope is my clients have a stronger sense of self, more authentic relationships, and a greater understanding of their life's potential and impact. In order to do this, I assess which type of therapy will meet my clients' specific needs. I most often utilize RO-DBT (radically open dialectical behavior therapy), DBT, CBT (cognitive behavior therapy), existential therapy, or psychodynamic therapy.
I specialize in treating adults struggling with eating disorders and body image. I promote a non-diet, health-at-every-size approach. The recovery process involves learning to be attuned to one's body, mind, and heart which empowers my clients to flexibly navigate a full life.
I also work with parents needing support surrounding a variety of family issues including family planning and perinatal mood disorders.
Lastly, I am dedicated to offering excellent and compassionate counseling to my clients and seek to foster a therapeutic environment that is welcoming to all people regardless of gender, race, religious belief, or sexual orientation.
