I believe that all emotions serve a purpose or function. I work to help clients identify, regulate, and express their emotions in more effective ways.
I integrate DBT components with a focus on skills-development in mindfulness and communication into our work. These DBT skills are supportive and effective at addressing issues with emotion regulation.
I use CBT tools and theories to help clients with their thoughts and thought patterns; CBT can be especially helpful in eating disorder/body image or anxiety related thoughts. CBT is the the leading evidence-based approach in helping numerous struggles and mental health disorders.
I have been passionate about helping clients with eating disorders throughout my career and schooling, and I have worked in various treatment settings in different roles. My hope is to help you identify and understand the function of your eating disorder, and to repair your relationship with food and your body.
With my background in eating disorder treatment, I work with clients to help them nurture a healthier and more connected relationship with themselves and their bodies. I will support you move from a place of shame, towards a place of acceptance.
Anxiety is displayed differently for everyone. Sometimes it feels as if your thoughts cannot slow down, you become frustrated and irritable, or you cannot focus on anything else. I believe that together we can work to improve your ability to observe what is happening in the moment, slow your thoughts, and take the appropriate action, allowing you to feel in control again.
