I believe that asking for help when life presents challenges is a sign of inner strength. It takes a great deal of courage to admit something isn’t working and to take the time to explore the reasons why. I use the Adlerian psychology model, which explores the purposefulness of symptoms and how the problems started. Recognizing and resolving those mistaken beliefs about you, others, and the world will free your mind, body, and spirit. I’ve had success treating a variety of issues, including body image issues and eating disorders, anxiety, depression, loss/grief, career concerns, and other problems.
In my work with eating disorders and body image concerns, I’ve helped many clients understand the purposefulness the symptoms serve and to make lasting changes from this deeper level of understanding. Clients will feel encouraged, empowered, and supported as they progress toward living more peacefully with themselves and others.
I feel that my calling in life is to help others feel love, self-respect, belonging, and to make a contribution to the world. People can’t achieve these things when they feel “less than” or pushed down. Encouragement, the key to growth and connectedness, is central in my practice.Theoretical Orientation: Adlerian Psychology
