Bio

I’m a professionally trained and experienced therapist who specializes in helping people struggling with Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)/trauma.

I usually tell my clients and colleagues that I “found my passion for helping people with eating disorders by accident, but stayed with them on purpose”.

As an undergraduate Psychology student at The College of New Jersey, I had to participate in an internship that would give me hands on training with people’s real life mental health struggles. Knowing little, but having an interest in learning more, I applied to work with a local eating disorder hospital program. A few phone calls and an interview later and I was accepted as an intern! Within a few weeks of starting my internship, I pretty much knew this is what I wanted to do. I was convinced. The people, their stories, and the hopeful changes that I saw pointed me down the path that brings me to where I am today.

That internship was in 2010 – a long time ago! Since then, I’ve been busy building the skills I needed to start this practice – my dream job. I’ve worked at a number of reputable eating disorder treatment centers in the tri-state area all while taking in as many great learning experiences as possible. I’ve made it a point to serve people with eating disorders at all levels of care: medical hospital, residential, PHP, IOP, as well as weekly traditional outpatient office visits. This means I understand the spectrum of issues that you may face, and I know how to guide you in the right direction.

As a result of focusing my career on treating people with eating disorders, I have had to learn how to treat… well, a lot of other problems! I’ve become adept at handling co-occuring or stand-alone conditions such as anxiety disorders, OCD, trauma, family issues, relationship problems, and depression. Rest assured that regardless of where you are in your process, I will do everything I can to help.
