My Approach to Helping
Hi! Welcome to my site! I’m glad you found your way here and hope that what I tell you about me and the way I work will make you feel comfortable enough to take the next step. As a therapist, I specialize in working with women, adolescent girls and people in general involving issues of, self-esteem, eating disorders, relationship problems, and the depression, anxiety and anger that often accompanies those issues. I help people feel safe enough to share their experiences and frequently their shame, by providing a non-judgmental, compassionate, supportive environment. I work proactively with people of all ages, backgrounds, lifestyles, including members of the LGBTQ community. A text or phone call today, can make all the difference tomorrow.
More Info About My Practice
My special training with eating disorders, trauma/abuse, and illness management and is particularly useful and relevant in my work with women. In addition, my art background enables me to help artistically oriented clients who struggle with their own creative blocks and critical self-defeating voices. My clients determine their challenges and ultimately set their own goals. I provide skills and tools to manage and/or overcome fears and obstacles. I am an active participant in your effort to improve your life. I have a profound respect for those who are willing to work on themselves and their lives to make tomorrow better than today.
