Eating Disorders

I have been working closely with patients struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating since 2005. While uniquely challenging to treat, I firmly believe that recovery is possible. Treatment will often focus on the following goals:

  • Changing relationships with food, exercise, and body 

  • Learning new ways to manage emotions and tolerate distress

  • Relapse prevention strategies.

Eating disorders are multifaceted issues and may require a team approach. Often, I collaborate with nutritionists, psychiatrists, and medical doctors to create a holistic, well-rounded treatment.

Infertility

Navigating through infertility and fertility treatments can be a road filled with sadness, worry, and loss. However, all too often, the emotional toll is ignored or overlooked. I work to provide my patients with a supportive environment to process these complex emotional issues. Individual sessions often focus on themes such as mindfulness, self care, and emotional expression. Couples sessions center around communication and how to foster support between partners. I have experience assisting individuals and couples as they pursue fertility testing, IUI, IVF, third party reproduction, adoption, and single parenthood.

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders 

 Symptoms of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders can occur at any time during pregnancy and up to 12 months post birth. 
I work with pregnant women and new mothers as they navigate this transitional time.
 Treatment focuses on management of symptoms of depression and anxiety, normalizing feelings of shame and guilt, and lessening isolation. As needed, I can refer to and collaborate with other providers, such as reproductive psychiatrists, lactation consultants, and birth and postpartum doulas.
