Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am specially trained and certified to treat eating disorders and am currently a board member of the Monterey chapter of CAMFT. I have worked for a number of agencies and have training and experience with adolescents, families, substance and sexual abuse, suicide prevention, trauma, school counseling, anxiety, OCD, and domestic violence.

The majority of my practice relates to eating disorders and I welcome any person who struggles with issues related to eating, weight or body image as I help clients understand and re-evaluate their relationship to food, their bodies and their lives through a more thorough understanding of who they are.

My formal training in the treatment and prevention of eating disorders is augmented by the experiences gained through work spent on my own personal recovery from an eating disorder. I am passionate about my practice, working to treat eating disorders in a culture that continues to perpetuate them.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
