Eating disorders & body image issues

I specialize in issues that commonly bring Women to therapy including relationship concerns,self esteem, trauma, parenting issues, and eating disorders/body image issues. Using a Health at Every Size approach, I have helped hundreds of clients feel better about their bodies. I have extensive training, experience and a passion for helping Women clients.
All tailored to your needs
From a young age, I've enjoyed helping others. Early on, helping involved being a strong listener and offering compassion and encouragement. A desire to become more effective at helping led me to pursue the education needed to become a Psychologist. I began studying Psychology in 1994 as an undergraduate at Penn State University. In 2005, I completed a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology also from Penn State.
I moved to Baltimore in 2007, appreciating the similar community feel and culture to my hometown of Pittsburgh. I was hired as Towson University's Eating Disorder Services Coordinator, helping college students address eating and body image concerns and providing workshops. I was promoted to Director of Clinical Services at Towson in 2012, overseeing all psychotherapy and emergency services.
I opened my private practice in 2007 where my clinical work has focused on helping teens and adults. As a therapist, I am empathic, encouraging and challenging, assisting clients in making changes. I offer more than just a good listening ear, providing suggestions and strategies for addressing your struggles. I use a variety of proven approaches, best knowledge and experience to help clients. We will work as a team, collaborating on improving your well being. Your needs are unique so the treatment approach will be tailored to you. Treatment approaches include Cognitive Behavioral, Interpersonal/Psychodynamic and Mindfulness.
Suffering from mood and anxiety issues can have a troubling effect on your quality of life, from career satisfaction to social relationships. I use research supported approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Mindfulness strategies to help clients overcome their struggles.

Our busy lives can pull us out of the present moment, creating anxiety. Mindfulness helps people develop greater awareness and compassion. I've led Mindfulness Workshops and Groups for years, and incorporate these strategies into my work with individual clients. My regular practice helps keep me grounded and present as a therapist.
