I specialize in eating disorders, OCD, trauma and addiction. Treating embarrassing problems is my jam.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Las Vegas, NV
Disordered Eating? I've been there and done it all. I've been to the dark side of both under and over eating and learned so much in my 15 years of recovery. My training and experience has taught me that intuitive eating can be an eventual reality for everyone. I take a Health at Every Size approach to recovery and wholeheartedly believe in your ability to find freedom with food. Note that health at every size and intuitive eating does not mean chaos and endless weight gain (I promise!)
Prior to dedicating my private practice to disordered eating, I was both a counselor and clinical manager at a residential substance abuse facility. I am a licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor and have the training and experience required to help you get off the hampster wheel of addiction. I find most of my clients know exactly what they need to do to get clean, but unfortunately that's where it ends. I can help you identify the motivation and patience to follow through!
Are events of your past affecting your behavior today? Trauma can be big and obvious and other times it can be seemingly small or insignificant. Either way it can really disrupt your life. I take a trauma informed approach to treatment and am EMDR certified. EMDR is one of the most powerful and effective modalities we have for treating the symptoms of trauma. Give me a call and we can determine if EMDR is appropriate for you.
Im trained in ExRP (formerly known as ERP). I'd love to guide you through the process of exposures so you can live a life free from intrusive, unwanted thoughts, and compulsive behavior.
