About My Clients

You may be struggling with feeling like you are not in control of your life, your relationships, and the world around you. I try to empower individuals with eating disorders, whether they are seeking control through harmful means such as trying to control how their bodies look; or if they think they don't have any control over their bodies and believe they should. American society makes most of us feel small and unimportant as individuals. Let's find your power together.

My Background and Approach

As a humanistic therapist, I believe that you and I are equals, and I will encourage honest, direct communication in our relationship. I will also work with you to tap into your strengths and resources to manage your problems. I have experience working in the community for both adults and adolescents with eating disorders, where I have honed my skills with Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT). Part of this experience has been leading a weekly improvisation group to help patients learn how to come out of their shells, take risks, and learn how to fail. As an experienced improvisational comedian myself, I like to draw on drama therapy techniques and humor in individual therapy sessions as well. I also have experience helping people with mood disorders, post-religious issues, relationship issues, and life transitions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

One of my primary goals as a therapist is to help my clients empower themselves, and I believe in every person’s ability to do so. I specialize in helping individuals with eating disorders, and I work from a Health at Every Size, weight-neutral perspective. Outside of my specialized experience, I believe in equal human rights for all, and am not afraid to discuss how societal issues intersect to affect my clients. If I'm not helping you discover how to advocate for yourself, then I don't think I'm doing my job. On a more personal note, I grew up in a fundamentalist Christian church, from which I separated years ago. I have focused on this quite a bit in my own therapeutic work, and it has helped me realized how complicated the residual effects of such a departure can be. For those of us in this type of situation, I think acknowledging any lingering old beliefs is an important step towards growing into our own spiritual or non-spiritual systems.
