Personal Statement

The objective of my practice is to provide support to overcome undesirable behaviors, especially emotional eating. I specialize in treating individuals who struggle with weight loss, eating disorders, and anxiety. It’s not enough to know the steps to breaking this cycle—professional psychotherapy will help equip you with the tools to cope with compulsions and create healthier lifestyle choices.

I practice solution-based therapy, while blending other techniques to offer individuals a personal treatment plan. This plan consists of assessment, insight, and goal-setting. I work to guide and encourage individuals, helping them gain clarity regarding the symptoms and reasons behind their behaviors, as well as help them understand how their personal strengths can be used to cope with challenges and overcome them.

Don’t continue to live with anxiety, depression, obesity, or other eating issues; allow me to help you build defenses to combat these challenges.

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
