Profile
“After seeing how many people struggle with eating disorders and body image, I felt drawn to the field to help others break free from the unrealistic appearance standards our world upholds.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
After seeing how many people struggle with eating disorders and body image, I felt drawn to the field to help others break free from the unrealistic appearance standards our world upholds. So many people feel the pressure to "be" a certain way and in my work, I aim to help clients step outside these boxes to find true happiness and peace within.
What should someone know about working with you?
My goal is for our sessions to be a safe space for you to grow, reflect, and process. I often work with clients on specific goals around self-esteem, shame, and anxiety, but I tailor sessions to meet the needs of each client and enjoy working collaboratively to structure our sessions in a way that works for you.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I remain connected to the eating disorder treatment communities both in Connecticut and in Boston to stay up-to-date on the newest research findings and treatment recommendations and ensure holistic care for my clients. I also greatly enjoy learning about shame, self-compassion, and internal family systems therapy to help my clients live less anxious lives.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
After living most of my life as a perfectionist, I really enjoy working with clients who are ready to change the way they think about themselves. We often beat ourselves up mentally and emotionally in hopes that being hard on ourselves will result in change. Both personally and professionally, I've found that increasing self-compassion leads to the happiness and growth that many people are seeking.
