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.
