I help people who are inundated with thinking they are unacceptable suffering from anxiety and depression feel free and accept who they are.

Are you constantly worried about your body image? Do you feel preoccupied with how you look and what you're eating? Have you been calorie counting, skipping meals or over exercising? Perhaps binge eating, hiding and stuffing your emotions? Have you been experiencing anxiety and depression? I know what you're going through: negative thoughts about yourself, pressure to conform, and not knowing who you are. I can help you rediscover yourself and learn therapeutic skills to reduce those feelings.

I believe in targeting the root of the issue, and lifting the veil of the parts you were conditioned to believe are unacceptable and shameful to bring about peace and clarity. My therapeutic approach is direct, nonjudgmental, patient and empathic utilizing psychodynamic therapy which just means discussing a lot of your past especially from childhood. As well as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) which just means uncovering distorted thinking patterns and discovering other perspectives and possibilities. After finding out where and how it started, we can work collaboratively to change it or at the least reduce it's influence on you. You will gain a better understanding of yourself, motivations, intentions, and triggers to make more informed decisions, work towards breaking old patterns, increase self-esteem and self-worth, develop healthier eating habits progress and become more comfortable with you. Collaborating with a dietician and your PCP may also be helpful to meet your goals.
