My therapy style is engaged and interactive. I won’t just sit there and say “Uh-huh”! I’ll directly address the problems that brought you here. We may explore important experiences that have contributed to your current struggles, but therapy is not about getting stuck in the past. By connecting the dots from past to present, you’ll develop a more nuanced story of your life. By uncovering moments of strength or courage, you’ll begin to see yourself differently and even think, feel and act in new ways. Our sessions should provide you not just with relief and hope, but practical strategies so you feel empowered to face life’s challenges.
I bring a small hypoallergenic rescue dog named Sandy to many of my sessions. A mix of Maltese and other unknown breeds, she is three years old and quite affectionate. If you want her on the couch with you, she’ll happily oblige. If you do not, that’s OK too! You're invited to read my blog about parenting, grief, healing from eating problems, sexual abuse, and addiction. I enjoy presenting to groups on issues related to food issues, media pressures, healthy parenting, body image and emotional eating.
