I offer individual therapy for adults.
Areas of interest and specialization include:
- Pregnancy and Postpartum Issues
- Disordered Eating & Chronic Dieting
- Relationship Challenges
- Body Image
Whether you are struggling in relationship to others or self, I use an eclectic blend of scientifically supported techniques to help you improve awareness and connection to mind, body and others.
I have extensive experience in treating body image issues and helping people to have a better relationship with food. Whether you are bingeing, restricting, compulsively exercising, or engaging in some other food behavior, you will find me to be knowledgeable, compassionate and respectful. Our work will help you decrease shame, increase awareness, and implement practical tools for change.
Another area of interest is helping women transition into motherhood. Each journey is unique and needs to be honored, but there is comfort in recognizing that the challenges are also universal. You are not alone, and I will assist you in finding the particular strengths, support, and wisdom that you need to be at peace with yourself and with parenthood.
Using an integrated approach of Cognitive-behavioral, Relational, and Mindfulness-based therapies, I will help you move away from behaviors and thoughts that numb or distance you from other people or life itself. We will explore and practice sustained change that allows for more life and connection in every moment.
