Welcome to my therapy practice. I specialize in providing psychotherapy to adolescents (ages 16+) and adults, focusing on a wide range of psychological concerns. With extensive clinical experience and training, my expertise lies in the treatment of Eating Disorders. However, I also work with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, body image issues, self-destructive behaviors, relationship problems, and other general psychological concerns. I am well-versed in assisting families dealing with transitions and impaired communication.
My therapeutic approach is integrative, as I believe in tailoring the treatment to meet the unique needs of each client. Drawing upon research, evidence-based interventions, and my clinical experience, I incorporate various modalities such as Psychodynamic Therapy, Attachment-Based Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
As your therapist, I see myself as a beacon of hope. I empathize with the challenges that come with resistance and ambivalence during the change process. I also adopt the role of an educator, providing psycho-education on topics including eating disorders, depression, anxiety, family systems, and communication styles. Additionally, I offer supervision to licensed graduate social workers working towards their advanced licensure, as well as eating disorder clinicians pursuing their certified eating disorder specialist certification. I am committed to ongoing learning, actively seeking out opportunities for professional development through training, supervision, and consultation.
For adolescents struggling with eating disorder behavior, I employ a Family-Based Treatment Approach, involving sessions that include family members. This approach allows me to provide psycho-education, coaching, and support to caregivers, empowering them to structure home life in a way that supports recovery and restores confidence and hope, which can often be shattered during the course of this illness.
