My Approach

As a therapist, I will help you discover how to: • eat and enjoy the foods you really love, without worrying about gaining weight • accept and even like your body • find and maintain your healthy weight naturally through uncovering the underlying causes for your behaviors • focus on and improve your relationships by helping you move away from blaming food and your body • learn to like yourself, your whole self As a counselor, I go beyond traditional talk therapy to help you to learn healthier coping skills around food, your body, and your life in general. I use a counseling approach that will help you address the root causes of your problems around food. Through therapy, you can end the cycle of using food and hating your body to cope with your emotional needs.

My Background

I know first hand what it is like to deal with food and body issues. For years, I struggled with food issues and hating my body. I compared myself to every woman I saw and resisted exercising refusing to give into what other people told me I should do and how I should look. I ate to hide how I was feeling and to avoid being close to anyone. I thought I couldn’t be loved if I was fat. 14 years later, I am pleased to say all that has changed for the better. I no longer use food to cope. I feel good about myself, my body, and my life. I am now passionate about helping others recover as well. I love that my job as a counselor is helping you to eat whatever you want and feel good about it. My counseling experience spans over 10 years and has included studying and working with experts in the eating disorder field, teaching counseling and communication skills classes, and assisting and managing several personal growth seminars and support groups.
