Q&A

Honestly, I just love seeing people get better and living healthier lives.

I have been working at a hospital for many years where I had to see only individual adults and only work under their guidelines and schedules. Given this, I have been unable to see anybody when I felt they needed to be seen (which was usually weekly or at least every other week). Furthermore, I was not able to see couples or families. Given that I had been trained in my Master's Program in Marriage in Family Therapy and also wanted to be able to see patients without any constraints, I went into my own practice.

I love the freedom and variety afforded by being in my own practice. It allows me and my patients to collaborate and for me to tailor their treatment to their individual needs and circumstances.

I absolutely love what I do. It is my passion and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I purposely focused my training starting with very young children and worked my way up through the ages from elementary school children, middle school, high school, college, and then adults. In doing so, I now have a comprehensive background in treating patients from all ages and developmental stages. This has allowed me to work well with a variety of patients over the years. For instance, I can treat patients who are struggling with childhood issues of their own or with their own children.
Throughout my career, I have also specialized in treating eating disorders, and am now a certified eating disorder specialist (CEDS). I have treated hundreds of patients struggling with food, weight and body image issues in the 20+ years since I have been seeing patients. So, if you have an unhealthy relationship with food or are overwhelmed with your with your body image, give me a call.
