Treating eating disorders is my passion. I am honored to be able to help others heal. I have also been treating eating disorders for most of my career and I am also personally recovered. I believe my personal experience gives me both an extra level of empathy and knowledge. I currently am continuing my education is RO-DBT which is designed to treat eating and over control disorders.
I am a certified clinical trauma professional through PESI and have taken several continuing education courses to understand the complexity of trauma and the impact on the brain. 1/4 of individuals suffering from eating disorders have symptoms of C-PTSD there for it is my duty to be prepared to treat trauma. I would be honored to be on your healing journey.
I am certified in CBT and use CBT as a baseline intervention to help empower clients and give them practical skills they can use and master. CBT can be great when challenging your ED voice and trying to create recovery reframes as you work through recovery.
I am certified in DBT through the evergreen institute and have worked hard to maintain this certification throughout the years. DBT have 4 modalities all of which can be helpful during eating disorder recovery.
