I believe that all challenges we experience in life are opportunities to learn about ourselves and grow as individuals. I am passionate about providing support and hope to others as they work toward healing, and am dedicated to creating a warm, nonjudgmental, and safe therapeutic environment. I know that each person has unique strengths, challenges, and experiences; therefore I will always tailor treatment to meet your individual needs. I specialize in treating adults with eating disorders, trauma-related disorders, and interpersonal issues, and have experience working with people of all genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations. I utilize a variety of evidence based therapy modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and some somatic modalities to support my clients in increasing insight into disordered behavior patterns, developing practical skills for managing behavioral urges and symptoms, and creating sustained recovery by healing their relationships with food and their bodies.

I have worked in the mental health field for eight years, primarily in specialty treatment centers for adolescents and adults with eating disorders. I have been a direct care provider as well as an individual, family, and group therapist at the residential, PHP and IOP levels of care and have extensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Although I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, I am experienced in treating common mental concerns including anxiety, depression, substance use, and trauma-related disorders. In addition, I have worked in the community mental health field as a family therapist, where I had the opportunity to work with families from diverse backgrounds around a range of issues including ineffective family dynamics, behavioral problems, and trauma.
