Do you hate who you see in the mirror? Have you been on numerous diets and still not found satisfaction with your weight and shape? Many of my patients suffer from eating concerns that involve low self image, struggles extreme changes in weight, over/undereating, purging, over-exercising and other maladaptive forms of weight and shape management. In my experience, when patients begin to explore their anxiety, depression, and traumas, while at the same time making behavioral changes, many ED symptoms can be alleviated. I have extensive experience and have done a good deal of research in the field of EDs and am intimately aware of the ins and outs of issues relating to this extremely debilitating illness. I know the recovery process can be daunting and overwhelming; however, I am confident that I can help you learn how to find peace with your body/shape, begin to eat intuitively, and stop the treacherous cycle of dieting and ED behaviors.
Working with couples on managing their romantic relationships is a passion of mine—Over the last 14 years working in the field of mental health, I have worked with various couples on managing the stresses that inevitably arise in intimate partnership. Couples therapy can assist in working through issues relating to communication, sex/intimacy, compromise, resentment, and trust, to name a few. I have extensive training and experience in helping couples uncover unhealthy dynamics and develop more functional and pleasing part of their relationships. I focus intensely on helping partners to understand each other’s emotions and historical dynamics that play into they own relationship patterns while making each other feel seen, heard, and validated.
Over the last decade I have helped people overcome great sadness, despair, hopelessness, and grief. Depression and anxiety have a cruel way of taking over our bodies and negatively affecting our functioning at work, in our relationships, and with how we view ourselves. I can work with you to identify how past life events, traumas, or ways of thinking are affecting your ability to cope in the present. Through the therapy process you will begin to feel hopeful about the future and will learn to live more honestly and in the present moment.
