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, psychotherapy with a skilled and compassionate therapist may offer 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 change. 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 have extensive experience in family therapy and family-based treatments (FBT and FBT-TAY) for eating disorders.

Currently, I am in the process of reducing my practice in both hours and clinical acuity as part of a five year retirement plan.  Interested prospective clients should know that as I downsize, I am taking more out of office days than many mental health professionals.  If you elect to work with me, it will be important that these absences and my coverage arrangements are ethical given your personal situation and understood and acceptable to you. 

NEW INQUIRIES: If you are making a first inquiry about regular personal therapy or nutrition counseling with me, please note that my practice is currently full. Although I have had a waiting list in the past, I am no longer able to add to it.  I will likely not be taking new clients inquiring today for several months. You are welcome to call me to inquire about possible future openings. It may take me a week or longer to return calls from people new to me. Very nutritionally compromised individuals and families in crisis are strongly encouraged to seek a clinician who is available now or very soon.

Upcoming out of office dates:

2022:  October 11-25, November 21-25, December 19-31

2023:  January 1-January 9
