MY SPECIALTIES

TRAUMA

Traumatic experiences- whether chronic or a single incident- can cause long-lasting dysregulation of the nervous system.  To heal from past experiences that are holding you back, you need more than catharsis and insight.  You need to address the impact of trauma on your body and learn new ways of coping and relating to yourself and the world. I incorporate traditional talk therapy with Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a cutting-edge somatic therapy that will help you learn to regulate your traumatized nervous system. There is relief from the impact of trauma.  

GRIEF & LOSS

Though loss is something everyone will face at some point, the experience of grief is widely misunderstood. So, it can feel very isolating and lonely.  You may feel like others don't understand what you're going through and you may feel frustrated or disappointed by how the people in your life have responded to your grief.  Whatever kind of loss you are grieving, grief therapy offers you a supportive and compassionate environment to process all that goes into adjusting to life after loss. 

EATING DISORDERS

I understand that eating disorders are a way of coping and in order to recover you can't just take away your most reliable way of managing overwhelming emotions- you must learn and practice new ways.  Your recovery from an Eating Disorder is possible and the best way to approach your treatment is with a comprehensive treatment team that includes an outpatient therapist, Registered Dietician and Physicians to monitor your health.  If you are looking for a therapist for your treatment team, I can offer the support you need in your recovery and help you improve your relationship to food and your body.

INTUITIVE EATING

Intuitive Eating is an evidenced-based treatment for chronic dieting and disordered eating developed by Registered Dietitians, Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole. You can re-learn the innate wisdom all of us are born with to nourish ourselves and stop struggling with dieting and food obsession.  If you're working through the Ten Principles of Intuitive Eating and want support, I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and can help you process the emotional impact of dieting and work towards making peace with food and your body. 

SUPERVISION

I offer supervision for a limited number of Social Workers who are seeking to develop and deepen their clinical practice in a supportive, collaborative and encouraging supervisory setting.
