I can help you put together the pieces of recovery
Since completing a Master of Social Work degree at Simmons College School of Social Work, I have provided individual and group therapy in a range of treatment settings. It has been an immense privilege to witness the growth of each of my clients over the course of the recovery process.
My treatment approach is individualized and multi-faceted. Whatever problem brings you to therapy, I will work with you to understand how it functions in your life, envision life free of the problem, learn new ways of coping more effectively, and plan and enact strategies for change. Depending on your needs, the evidence-based approaches I incorporate may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, and/or Motivational Interviewing.
As an eating disorder specialist, I am dedicated to improving treatment outcomes for individuals with all forms of disordered eating, body image or weight concerns, I have experience across all levels of care, including inpatient, partial-hospital and intensive outpatient programs, as well as outpatient therapy. I have developed treatment programming and resources incorporating evidence-based and mind-body practices, and developed and supervised a graduate-student training program in eating disorders. I am particularly skilled at supporting individuals at risk for hospitalization, and those who are transitioning out of higher levels of care.
I am also experienced in integrative treatment, including holistic mind/body/spirit interventions, drawing on both my clinical experience and M.Div. from Boston University. My other professional activities include research, publications, and presentations on eating disorders and other topics related to mental health and spirituality.
