TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

I believe in a client centered approach and working with individuals and collaborating with them on their treatment. I use a multitude of different modalities based on what is right for each individual. I believe that each individual deserves to be treated with compassion and patience while they work through underlying issues that have led to the development of the eating disorder.

I believe that recovery is possible. I would define recovery as a process. One in which an individual will work through in a unique and individual way and at their own pace. To me recovery is not only the absence of symptoms, but resolution of what may have led an individual towards using the eating disorder or other co-occurring addictions in the first place.
