When working with clients, I like to nurture as well as challenge.  I find that most people have a natural instinct toward wellness but need to address obstacles that stand in the way.  How I work with each individual client depends on their particular needs.  My work utilizes cognitive behavioral interventions, mindfulness practices, expressive arts and experiential methods to help clients work through challenges.

I draw largely from psychodynamic and attachment theory, as I believe that understanding past history and how it impacts current life is essential to growth and relief from repetitive negative patterns.  Context is essential to the recovery process, so my aim is to support not only the individual struggling with disordered eating, but their families and significant others as well.  My other specialties include grief and loss, life transitions, relationship repair, parenting, blending families and recovery from alcoholism and substance abuse.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I served in several different professional roles. I started out in the music business, then became a Corporate Paralegal and later a Holistic Health Coach. I also have a background in working with special needs populations, children, and refugees.

I consider it a privilege to work with clients who are digging deep and moving toward positive change.  I look forward to meeting you and your family!
