About me

I am licensed in Pennsylvania with 6 years of professional work experience. My specialty is working with individuals with eating disorders and body image concerns. I work from a HAES (Health at Every Size) framework, and will never judge someone for the size or shape of their body. I use a DBT and CBT approach with art therapy to help individuals notice their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors involved with nutrition and their bodies. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I am LGBTQ+ affirming and consider myself an ally to the LGBTQ+ community. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
