I specialize in eating disorders, body image issues and self-esteem issues. I am here to help you discover how you can take control and rediscover balance.
Working from an eclectic approach drawing on techniques I have learned from my training in Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness, I provide a safe environment for us to explore and work on the issues that bring you to therapy.
Eating Disorder Therapy
Are you preoccupied with negative thoughts about yourself and your body? Are you spending a lot of time thinking about food and eating? Are you avoiding spending time with family or friends?
I treat eating disorders by getting to know you as an individual and then using my knowledge of CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and psychodynamic therapy help you understand your eating disorder, what keeps you stuck, how it has been impacting you, what is underneath your eating disorder, and how to recover.
Together we will work on helping you eliminate symptoms, rediscover who you are, and feel more at peace with who you are.
Secondary Areas of Focus
I help clients who feel nothing they do is good enough understand their perfectionism and learn how to keep the helpful aspects of it while letting go of the the unhelpful aspects of it.
I work with clients with symptoms of depression to help them understand the origin of these symptoms, manage their symptoms of depression and help prevent relapse.
I work with clients with symptoms of anxiety to help them understand the origin of these symptoms, manage their symptoms of anxiety and help prevent relapse.
I work with clients experiencing grief to help them work through their individual grief process.
