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
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
