I often tell my clients that finding a counselor is like buying a new pair of shoes; sometimes you have to try on a few different sizes and styles before you find the right pair. My style is empathic and understanding, yet straight-forward and honest. I help my clients get unstuck and move forward, while providing feedback that is productive and manageable. You and I can work together to come up with ways to meet your goals for therapy, along with acquiring insight into your behaviors, thoughts, and feelings.
I work with individuals and families, more specifically specializing in Eating Disorders and Anxiety Disorders. One of my passions is helping adolescents and teens, and much of my training has also been in working with young people, especially when they need help and support to decrease thoughts of self-harm.
In addition to individual counseling, I also work with families. I help family members communicate more effectively with one another and most importantly to understand one another; to build trust.
I have been in private practice for seven years and have been licensed since 2011. In the past, I have worked with patients in Psychiatric Hospitals and Partial Hospitalization Programs. I have also worked the past four years in Day Treatment and Intensive Outpatient Treatment programs for those struggling with Eating Disorders.
