I am passionate about what I do. As someone who can easily find compassion and empathy for others, I was naturally led to a profession that allows me to support and guide people through times of emotional healing and growth.
I have extensive experience and expertise in effectively working with individuals who experience eating disorders, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, body image issues, and interpersonal struggles. I utilize several therapeutic principles, including Mindfulness, CBT, DBT, ACT, and ERP. (Descriptions of each principle can be found here.)
I received my Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling and my Doctorate of Counseling Education and Supervision. In addition to my clinical work, I have conducted research on the relationship between intuitive eating behaviors and cultural identity. I am also a presenter for local and international conferences and an educator who has taught classes at universities and trained other therapists.
