I strive to help every client reach their goals, whether it's to "just stay alive" or to "determine the meaning of life." Everyone can benefit from therapy and I am here to help you on your journey to better wellness and optimal mental health. I believe in meeting clients where they're at and in supporting them in every part of their journey, whether it be the beginning, the hardest point, or maintenance periods. There is always something to gain in therapy.
My special interest is eating disorders. I have completed plentiful research in this field and I am prepared to help individuals combat their ED. I utilize methods from CBT/DBT, schema-focused therapy, and even existentialism to help clients overcome their disorder and cope with symptoms in order to improve their lives and maintain recovery. I am also prepared to help clients work through their trauma and have experience working with trauma-related cases, as well as borderline personality traits, including fear of abandonment, interpersonal relationship issues, self-harm, and suicidal ideations.
I provide each and every client with compassion, empathy, and unconditional positive regard to build rapport and develop a relationship. Research shows that the most important aspect of counseling is the client-counselor relationship and I am well prepared to build this relationship with each and every client to provide the best care possible.
