licensed professional counselor
Areas of speciality
I primarily work with adults, college-age students, and teenagers with eating disorders + those wanting to heal their relationship with food and their bodies. Eating disorders are often one of the most misunderstood mental health disorders, but recovery is possible. Part of our work will be discovering how your beliefs about food and your body have been holding you back from living fully and making active steps to work on changing these beliefs. We will work together to develop specific goals tailored to your current stage of change in recovery.
I also help individuals who are navigating life transitions, whether that may be with adjusting to college, a new job or career, or adjusting to a new move. While transitions can be exciting, they also bring anxiety and worry that can feel consuming. I help many young professionals navigate career and work stress and the anxiety of living in a culture driven by perfectionism and success.
My style as a therapist has been described as warm, genuine, empathetic + insightful. I will hold space for all of your emotions and create an environment that is accepting and supportive where you can show up exactly as you are.
I am a person-centered therapist by heart, meaning that I believe you are the expert on you. I also primarily utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). These are evidenced-based therapies for eating disorders, depression, and trauma related symptoms.
Some examples of interventions we may explore in therapy are emotional regulation skills to help with difficult emotions and techniques from CBT and ACT to help improve self-defeating thinking patterns that could be holding you back.
Types of therapy
I offer therapy services for individuals ages 16+ in the office and virtually. Life happens and we may not always be able to make a session in person. I offer telehealth appointments through a confidential, HIPPA compliant video service.
