About My Clients

Do you or a loved one struggle with intense emotions & behaviors that no longer work to manage these emotions. My clients struggle with eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, ARFID, & binge eating as well as self harm, anxiety & high conflict that disrupt their lives. Perhaps, you or your child/teen are plagued by feelings of shame related to these behaviors. If you are ready to recover & feel worthy, find self acceptance, return to your goals and have satisfying relationship I can help.

My Background and Approach

I have advanced training & certifications in treatments that work: DBT, CBT, Maudsley/FBT, etc - you deserve no less. The most compassionate care I can provide begins with treatments my clients can invest their time, money and hope in. These tools have in common a nonjudgmental focus that helps you grow w/out blame, shame and guilt. You were always doing the best you could & now want to do better. For parents struggling without "instructions" or individuals fighting an eating disorder, suicidal thoughts, etc, our nurturing therapeutic relationship can be the basis for healing and change. We will become a solid team with you as the expert on you & me as the expert in therapies that are effective & bring relief. We will start in the here & now, building skills to regulate emotions, tolerate distress, and communicate more effectively. I will help you do more than understand your patterns; I will help you change them. For almost 20 years I have helped kids, teens & families heal.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we are all here to make a difference and that everyone has the capacity for change. Therefore I provide and advocate for evidence based treatments that offer people who are struggling their best hope for recovery and change. I believe in listening to people who are the experts on themselves and their own lives. Then compassion can and must be combined with active interventions that have been proven to work. Otherwise your suffering continues despite the kindest of listeners. Instead, I put my passion and commitment into individualizing evidence based tools to achieve your goals and improve you life. Lets not just talk the talk. Lets walk the walk! Btw, I am also passionate about dogs and happy to meet your furry friend.
