As an experienced Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I am committed to my work with adults, teens, couples and families of all cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations. Honoring individual differences, I create an atmosphere in which personal discovery feels safe, encouraged and welcomed. Operating in the here and now, I utilize both the Somatic (body-oriented) and the Transpersonal (spiritual) elements which take shape through various forms: meditation, mindfulness of breath, body awareness, spirituality, metaphor, art, the written word, active imagination and hypnotherapy.
Yes I do believe it is possible to recover from an eating disorder.
