Hey There,

Have you ever had a therapist that wasn't a good fit and "ruined" therapy for you? Have you struggled to feel understood and feel like you are giving up? Well, that is why I became a therapist. I felt like I didn't have a good therapist when I was in puberty and I stopped believing it would work. Now, I have dedicated my life and practice to focusing on helping people rebuild their self-esteem, body image, and self-confidence.  

About My Professional Experience.

I specialize with individuals struggling with OCD, anxiety and eating and body image issues. That's right, I have dedicated my practice to individuals struggling with all of these issues at once. After my years working at a local RTC for eating disorders, then an intensive outpatient program for OCD, I realized there was a giant gap in care for individuals who were struggling with these issues together. I have spent a large amount of my time primarily working with these populations along with perfectionism, and disordered eating in athletes.
