Anorexia / Bulimia / Other Eating Disorders
If you or a loved one are suffering from issues related to body image and food, you probably know how difficult it can be to find a therapist who can help you. My experience with eating disorders goes back 25 years, having been on the founding team of a cutting edge eating disorder unit at a prominent community hospital.

That experience taught me that eating disorders are complex illnesses that require integrative approaches to treatment. Because of that, I work closely with nutritionists and physicians in order to ensure the most comprehensive care for each patient. I am also aware of the difficult issues which arise in the family when a member is suffering from an eating disorder, thus supporting family members is frequently involved in the treatment plan.

Midlife Issues / Crises (Men and Women)
As a woman in midlife I know all too well that when you hit midlife, you also hit stumbling blocks. Whether it’s losing your identity when the kids leave, being unsure of your career path, losing the spark in your relationship, or even learning to live single again, Psychoanalysis is an effective and empowering solution to midlife troubles. I find great satisfaction from helping my patients to appreciate their value from many life experiences and in empowering them to set their future paths.

Cancer Counseling
Patients who are faced with a cancer diagnosis experience their lives changing in a moment’s notice. My role is one of confidant, comforter, and sounding board, all of which helps the patient process their feelings and make sound decisions in this tumultuous time. Family members are often unable to provide the patient with the necessary support during this period, as they are dealing with their own anxiety surrounding the diagnosis. Because of this, I can also provide treatment for the patient’s loved ones. In my office there is freedom to discuss anything on the mind of the patient with compassion and support.
