Background

My theoretical orientation is eclectic, and I tend to conceptualize most often using humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral models. For me, one of the interesting challenges in providing psychotherapy is to find an approach that is meaningful from the client's perspective, grounded in theory, and informed by research. I actively search to find the approach best suited for each client's needs. While I enjoy working with clients with a wide variety of clinical issues and presenting concerns, I am particularly interested in addressing eating disorders, body image issues, mood disorders, and relationship issues.

I thoroughly enjoy supervision and see it as a rewarding process for both supervisor and supervisee. I begin supervision by learning about the supervisee's interests, past clinical experiences, and goals. This allows me to gear supervision to the supervisee's unique training needs. My goal is to create a supportive, collaborative, learning environment in which strengths can be built upon and growth areas can be developed.
