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 & Family Building 

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.

Emerging Adulthood 

Life transitions are always difficult. However, the time between adolescence and adulthood is particularly confusing and potentially troublesome. I have collaborated and maintained relationships with  many university counseling centers in the New York City area, including Columbia, Barnard, and Pratt. Therapy can be integral in assisting individuals make their way into young adulthood. Therapy often focuses on themes such as:

  • Gaining independence and fostering healthy relationships with parents and family members

  • Responsible of use of alcohol and other substances

  • Navigating complex romantic and peer relationships

  • Smoothly transitioning through graduation and into the working world
