Areas of Psychological Practice.
I have a passion for the treatment of Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, and other disordered eating and body image presentations. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities including Family Based Treatment (FBT), Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for ARFID (CBT-AR).
People may experience a wide variety of anxiety-related symptoms. I offer therapy to help address fears and phobias, separation anxiety, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
I use Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) to help clients reduce symptoms of obsessions and compulsions. ERP is the gold standard treatment for OCD.
Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors
Body focused repetitive behaviors include skin picking, hair pulling (trichotillomania), and thumb sucking. I use a combination of habit reversal training, stimulus control procedures, cognitive techniques, and acceptance and commitment therapy to help reduce BFRB symptoms.
Tics / Tourette syndrome
I enjoy seeing individuals take back their lives from Tourette Syndrome. While TS is not curable, I teach clients how to manage their tics in an effective and compassionate way using Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT).
Don't see a category that describes your concern? I still might be able to help. I also treat other areas not listed above - such as depression, insomnia, chronic pain, and behavioral issues in children.
Most importantly: If you or a loved one is experiencing mental health difficulties, please reach out for help. Whether it's with me or someone else, finding professional help is an important step toward recovery.
