My Areas of Practice

I am thrilled to be providing therapeutic services at Melrose Center. The therapeutic relationship is so important in the process of helping patients to create change.  I am always honored to become a part of a patient's story and therapeutic journey to healing.  I work collaboratively with patients to help them find peace, balance, and acceptance in their lives. I enjoy working as part of a multidisciplinary team to help patients make improvements in their standard of living by shedding light on their hidden strengths and opportunities. I utilize evidenced-based treatment approaches in my therapy practice which include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Family Based Treatment.

Other areas of interest include nutrition, body image, women's health, perfectionism, developmental life stage transitions, parenting, mindfulness, and chemical dependency.  I have a particular passion for helping empower women to create balance between the duties of parenthood and being a working professional. I enjoy working with families, couples, adolescents, children, and adults.

Prior to practicing at Melrose Center, the treatment of eating disorders was my primary focus.  Other past practicum and work experience also included supervised parenting visitation, treatment of sexual abuse victims and offenders, clinical focus with patients with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness,  and in-home family therapy.
