  • mood disorders
  • relationship issues
  • grief
  • life changes
I use a variety of strategies and treatment approaches including
  • ​Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment
  • Dialectical Behavioral Treatment
  • Exposure and Response Prevention
  • Family Based Therapy
  • Mindfulness-based approaches
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Relational therapy
When treating individuals with eating disorders, I use a treatment team approach. In addition to individual psychotherapy, treatment teams may include nutrition therapy, medical monitoring, psychopharmacology, family therapy, or other treatment modalities.
