Personal

I have always been interested in the mind-body nature of medical and psychological disorders. I particularly enjoy working with adults and adolescents with eating disorders and consider it an honor to be part of a team that guides patients through the complex process of healing psychologically and physically. I also focus on patients' difficulties with depression, anxiety, trauma and personality disorders. I have been intensively trained in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and find this to be very helpful for people with eating disorders.  I also have received training and group supervision with Christopher Fairburn, DM, in CBT-E, an enhanced cognitive behavioral therapy particularly designed for treatment of eating disorders.  I primarily work with families and adolescents using Family Based Therapy, previously known as the Maudsley Method, which has been found to be one of the most effective treatments to date for adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa.  In addition, I use behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, relational, dynamic and mindfulness-based approaches with patients.
