About

I am a Registered Psychotherapist who has lost 100 lbs and kept it off for over eight and a half years. I work with individuals who identify their issues with weight as psychological.
Within this there are two groups of people I help.

The first are individuals who have psychological issues to address with their weight, along with other psychological conditions such as ADHD, PTSD, mood disorders or anxiety disorders.

Q&As

People who want to lose weight have an earnest desire to see results. I love helping people achieve their goals, as I have done. The weight loss process is long, hard, challenging and full of ups and downs. I love helping people work through those challenges using depth psychology they may not have experienced before.

While my own experience with weight loss is an obvious reason for starting in this area of work for me, I was stunned to learn that the odds of success with long-term weight loss were so low. However, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Fad diets, unqualified practitioners, outmoded ways of thinking and even medical professional's biases against people who have weight issues all contribute to low success rates. I spent years studying all the best psychology has to offer in terms of working with emotional eating, food addiction and eating disorders, and realize that most information out there about weight loss is really not suited to people who struggle psychologically with food.

My own experience is such that I can understand empathetically how clients feel throughout their journeys. Also, I many individuals with weight issues have other psychological issues they must face. As a Registered Psychotherapist, I am thoroughly trained in working with the many other conditions that often are intertwined with their weight and health concerns.

As of April 2020, all my sessions are only offered online or by telephone.
