Welcome to my private practice website. Whether you are looking for professional support and guidance through a challenging life situation right now or seeking treatment for a mental health disorder, counseling with a skilled and compassionate therapist offers an opportunity to grow, heal and change.
Many and varied life circumstances lead a person to consider the benefits of therapy. Therapy offers a wonderful opportunity to be heard, explore and express feelings and perceptions, gain clarity and receive support and guidance for desired new actions. As a mental health professional, I work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, family and other relationship issues, chronic illness or pain, and grief and loss. As a registered dietitian, I am also able to provide nutritional assessment and counseling for children, adolescents and adults with eating concerns, weight concerns or eating disorders. I specialize in family therapy and family-based treatments (FBT and FBT-TAY) for eating disorders.
PRACTICE UPDATES 2/19/19:
If you are making a first inquiry about regular personal counseling with me, please note that my practice is currently full. Although I have a waiting list, I will not be able to add to it until after March 1, 2019. You are welcome to call me at that time to inquire about possible future openings. As of February 15, 2019, I am fully out of network as a provider in both of my professions. If you are on my waiting list and my new network status means you are no longer interested in working with me come your turn, please let me know as soon as possible. Finally, always worth mentioning is that very nutritionally compromised persons or individuals and families in crisis are strongly encouraged to seek treatment with a clinician who is available now or very soon.
