Making healthy choices in life doesn’t occur naturally. For most of us it’s the unhealthy often inaccurate options that tend to appear first in our minds. Even more unfortunate is the fact that
it’s those initial thoughts we tend to act upon, and as someone once said, “therein the problem lies.”
Helping you identify and rectify problematic thinking and behavioral patterns that have gotten in the way of experiencing a more gratifying life is my goal and purpose for this practice.
What I bring to the therapeutic table is a wealth of experience caring for the body and the mind, with all it’s complexities and frailties. I recognize that a tired body equals a tired mind and vice-versa, and I work to help you achieve balance, regulation and increased strength to manage all areas of your life.
I apply my wellness focus to help you manage states of anxiety, depression, unique issues of the aging process, and the unique issues that coincide with physical illness.
In addition, I hold a certification to provide clients with nutritionally-based approaches to enhance their mental health.
A large portion of my practice is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders particularly binge-eating and chronic over-eating issues. I focus on food addictions, emotional and coping patterns; family culture and the influence the present culture has upon our relationship with food. Because one-size does not fit all I provide a thorough assessment, researched-based information and individualized, clear, concise skills to help you gain control of these frustrating and health-compromising behaviors.
