I work mostly with young adults struggling with anxiety, self esteem, disordered eating, and relationship issues. Whether you just started college or recently graduated, this is a time you are going through many life transitions. Trust me, I get it. I can personally relate to these issues which helps my clients feel less alone!
As a therapist, I take a hands-on collaborative approach. Together, we will get underneath the anxiety and get clear on what you actually want. I'll challenge and support you to make it happen. Anxiety and self doubt are keeping you stuck in unfulfilling friendships, relationships, and jobs. We all have insecurities. Instead of letting them take over, we'll learn to accept them and change how you view yourself. After therapy together, you'll feel more confident, secure, and connected to others.
I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Theater from Brandeis University and my Masters of Social Work from New York University. I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and Certified Integrative Health Coach. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solutions Focused Therapy (SFT), and Intuitive Eating (IE).
In my professional career as a therapist and coach, I have worked in many settings ranging from residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient level of care for eating disorders. I also worked in the school setting with middle school students where in addition to providing counseling services, I facilitated a health program for teens to teach them mindfulness, intuitive eating, and building confidence around body image.
