About Therapy

What can I expect?

Seeking therapy usually comes at time of change or upset, and my goal is to offer a safe, warm, collaborative and supportive environment in which to help you better understand your circumstances and begin to identify ways to feel better, or cope better, within them. 

How does it work?

Typically, after the initial assessment, therapy consists of a weekly 50-minute session, but this can vary depending on needs.  Duration of therapy also is highly dependent on each client's circumstances and goals.  

What's the first step?

The first step is usually sending an email or making a complimentary phone call appointment to discuss your particular situation.  Both my voicemail and email are confidential.  I return phone calls Monday-Friday, during regular business hours.  Weekend calls are returned on Monday.  Email is often a faster response time.  

Consultation and Supervision



For clinicians seeking further specialty in the treatment of eating disorders.  Available for Case Consultation.
