My Experience

For over a decade I have helped people heal their relationship with food and their body. I'll tell you about my professional qualifications in a moment but, first, I want you to know that I get it. Having recovered from my own eating disorder, I understand how painful it is and also what it takes to make your way out. I have walked the walk and continue put into practice everything I share with my clients. While recovery is hard, I 100% believe it is possible and worth all the effort it takes. 

In session you'll find that I'm relaxed and validating while also being focused and direct. And while the things that we work on in therapy are serious, we can also have some laughs along the way!
Professionally, I have dedicated myself to becoming skilled at Dialectical Behavior Therapy  (DBT) and other evidence based practices. I began my career working at a comprehensive DBT clinic (Portland DBT Institute) offering DBT and specializing in treating co-occurring eating disorders. I have attended numerous trainings with Marsha Linehan, founder of DBT, as well as many top DBT trainers.

Throughout my career, I have also gained expertise in treating a wide range of eating disorders. I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and approved to provide supervision to those working towards certification. I am firmly rooted in a Health At Every Size approach and am an accomplice in fighting anti-fat bias in our culture. 

Additionally, I have received intensive training on Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine's Center for The Treatment and Study of Anxiety.

I’ve been a student of yoga and meditation for over 20 years. In 2010 I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training. My background in yoga and eastern-based practices helps me to take a holistic approach to therapy, understanding and integrating the connection between body and mind. 

Take the step 

Reaching out can be daunting, especially if it's your first time trying therapy or if you've gone to therapy before but are still feeling stuck. I’ve helped many people who’ve felt that exact same way go on to find happiness, meaning and joy in their lives. 

Why continue to struggle alone when you can reach out for help and finally get your life moving in the direction you want?  Let's connect to see how we might work together to make lasting change finally happen in your life.
