I am a licensed professional counselor with extensive experience in the treatment of eating disorders, trauma, dissociative disorders, substance-related and addictive disorders. I have treated complex issues at the inpatient, residential, PHP, and IOP levels of care. I have worked as a primary therapist, clinical director, curriculum developer for the treatment of binge and emotional eating, and lead therapist. I take a values-based approach to remind humans they can be free from the constraints of negative self-talk and learn to live authentically. I incorporate somatic experiencing, DBT, CBT, ACT, EMDR, and mindfulness, to help clients gain access to their own capacity to heal and cope. My work is focused on a client-centered framework with the goal of co-creating a supportive container for healing and self-exploration. I use compassion-focused therapy and humor to help clients navigate the complex issues that have manifested in their eating disorders.
