About My Clients

Have you experienced uncomfortable or tragic events? Are you experiencing addiction or disordered eating? Are you fed up? Over the constant nagging in your mind? Have you concluded, maybe this is just who you are and how it will always be? If you've landed on my page, chances are, you are aware of the grip it has on you, and you’re nearing the end of your rope, reaching out… Hoping for relief. I commend you for investing in yourself and I want you to know you’ve come to the right place.

My Background and Approach

I have worked in an intensive outpatient treatment facility for disordered eating and most recently I was clinical manager at a residential substance abuse facility. Although I specialize in addiction and disordered eating, I tend to focus on trauma and the root cause of these behaviors (or whatever obsessive or addictive behaviors or maladaptive coping skills you are using ). I've noticed, most of my clients know exactly what they need to do to stay sober, eating disorder free, or behavior free, yet they can't seem to implement it for any length of time. It turns out, knowledge isn't always power and recovery without addressing the root cause is like putting a bandaid on a broken bone. I specializing in treating the big issue so bandaids aren't needed. In addition to these specialties I do also have many clients that are just looking to heal from trauma and are not suffering from any maladaptive behaviors.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a big proponent of trauma informed interventions that work quickly and produce lasting and measurable results. ​ I truly believe my job as a therapist, is to work myself out of a job. I personally value effective therapy interventions that work rapidly. I value clear end goals and measurable results. I believe, if a client is still talking to me about the same problem a few months later, I'm missing the mark. I have made a commitment to myself, and my clients, that I will not let my purpose and passion be drowned out by documentation, billing and a caseload larger than I can handle. I believe in quality care. I believe everyone in recovery deserves a solid connection with a therapist who doesn't have to look up their name before the next session. ​ I value humor and a raw straight forward approach. I don't beat around the bush with my thoughts or ideas. I lay it all out on the table. Think of my office as a potluck, take what works, leave the rest.
