I feel strongly that taking care of every person through considering their symptoms holistically, by taking a mind-body approach that incorporates their physical and mental health together, is the only acceptable way to work.
I believe in personalized approach to each person’s complaints and to creatively problem-solving what is distressing to them to find ways to alleviate their pain. I believe communication is essential to a health and productive therapeutic relationship.
I feel passionately that both genders deserve a tailored approach to their mental health needs. I care about working with women across the lifespan to address concerns such as mood disorders related to the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause.
I believe that physical and mental wellness in mind is essential, which is why I specialize in treatment for eating disorders and body image concerns.Training:
