Gain Balance and Well-Being in Your Life
Psychotherapy is provided in a supportive, safe, and confidential environment. I provide a quiet and reflective place in which to work collaboratively with someone who will listen and learn about you and then work with you to improve your life in ways that you want. What you want for yourself is what matters. Therapy helps find the road map to improve your well-being.
I am a licensed psychologist who works with children, adolescents, emerging adults, families and adults. My areas of specialization include Eating Disorders, emotional difficulties around academic and school related problems, emerging adults and developmental tasks. problem-solving skills, Parenting Skills, women's issues and coping skills. More recently I worked as a psychologist in a hospital out-patient Eating Disorders Program and am now in full-time private practice. I have also worked as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at a local college. My work primarily but not exclusively draws on Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) concepts and techniques.
