I seek to increase insight but also work to address behaviors that are keeping people stuck.
Since I began counseling in 2012, I have devoted my practice primarily to helping men, women, and adolescents recover from eating disorders, but I have also learned that I love walking with people through depression, grief, trauma, and a number of other life struggles. One of my greatest joys in life is watching others get free! My own journey to healing has helped me believe that freedom, hope, and fullness of life is for everyone. I like to unwind by hiking, gardening, taking road trips, trying new recipes, reading good books, and experimenting with art and other things that let me be creative.

MY TREATMENT APPROACH
I counsel from an attachment perspective and use primarily psychodynamic techniques. My approach is two-fold, in that I seek to increase insight but also work to address behaviors that are keeping people stuck. I incorporate skills based interventions from CBT, DBT, and ACT as needed.
