  • The Road to Healing Begins Here

    What I Do

    When we or someone we care about is hurting, it can feel scary to think about reaching out for help. You’ve likely tried (perhaps for years) to feel better, and you’re still struggling. Maybe you’ve already tried therapy, and it didn’t feel helpful. Or maybe this is your first time ‘dipping your toe in the therapy water’. The truth is that it can be hard to find a warm, empathic therapist who has the skills and experience to help you create the change you want to see in your life. I want you to know that there is hope, and that change is possible.

    The most important aspect of a good therapy experience is finding a therapist who ‘feels like a good fit’. Someone who gets you. First and foremost I’m here to listen to you, so that I can understand your experiences, your struggles, and to provide a non-judgmental environment of acceptance of you, as you are. From there, we will identify what’s working for you and what isn’t, and what strengths you can utilize and build upon to create a life you can thrive in. We will work together to create a path forward, so that you can learn to help yourself when the inevitable emotional storms of life hit.

    I enjoy working with people who are struggling with:

    • Depression & Anxiety
    • Disordered eating/Eating Disorders/Yo-Yo Dieting/Body image issues
    • Confidence/Self-Esteem Issues
    • Relationship Concerns
    • & More…

    I use a variety of therapeutic modalities in my work, mainly:

    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • TEAM-CBT (An advanced form of CBT created by David Burns, MD)
    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
    • Family-Based Treatment (FBT)
    • Self-Compassion, Mindfulness, & More…

    Our work together will start with a comprehensive assessment, so that I can get to know you and fully understand your concerns and goals for treatment. Your treatment plan will be tailored to meet your specific needs and help you reach your specific goals.

    *Please note that all therapy services are currently being done over video via Ring Central, a HIPAA-compliant video platform.

    I encourage you to take this courageous step, and reach out for a free 15-minute consultation

    I look forward to working with you!
