Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Specializing in Eating Disorders, Mood and Body Image issues for 30 years!
My clinical style is genuine, interactive, compassionate and straight forward. I am very passionate about my work, and I feel honored and privileged to walk with each of my clients through their recovery process. My initial goal is to provide you with a sense of hope, while creating an atmosphere of safety and trust. I want you to feel heard and understood, like “I get you”. The rest of the therapeutic process unfolds from there – with your permission and at your pace.
So when people ask, "Is recovery possible?" My response is, "Absolutely!" It takes time and patience; there is not one path to recovery. Everyone's journey is a little bit different, but recovery is possible. It is hard work, but the rewards of being freed from the obsession with food, weight, dieting or exercise is life altering.
I have devoted the past 30 years of my career to helping individuals and families break free from the grip of eating disorders. I have seen and experienced the freedom that takes place as the obsession with food, dieting, calories & weight gradually begins to decrease, and that time and energy is redirected to other areas of life that are much more rewarding and satisfying.
My approach to treatment combines my education, training and 30 years of experience, along with the hope and faith from my own personal recovery. I utilize a collaboration of evidence-based treatment approaches in my work including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Interpersonal Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Family Systems and Family Behavioral Therapy (FBT). I often work with other care providers in a multidisciplinary approach, so my clients can receive the very best care depending on their needs and treatment goals.

The question that clients frequently ask a therapist who specializes in eating disorders is “what qualifies you to do this work?” For me, the answer is both personal and professional.
When clients share their fear, anxiety, shame, embarrassment or obsession with food, weight & dieting, I totally understand.I know the pain, suffering and despair that are often a part of an eating disorder.
