Welcome to my clinical practice. I specialize in treating pre-teens, adolescents, and young adults with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and related issues. My clinical style is energetic, direct, collaborative, and empowering. I offer individual therapy as well as Family-Based Treatment (FBT; also known as The Maudsley Method).
Parents are a child’s greatest resource in recovery. In my work with children and adolescents, I keep parents fully informed and actively involved in each step of the process, from initial evaluation to relapse prevention. I view parents as the leaders of their child’s treatment team, and I serve as a consultant to them. I provide parents with the latest scientific information on their child’s illness, empowering them to make decisions about their child’s care and supporting them through the process.
My work with college students and young adults also involves family members and significant others when appropriate. I believe that a solid support system is essential to recovery and relapse prevention. I use evidence-based techniques to help patients resolve symptoms, achieve goals, and create a more meaningful life.
I am committed to providing effective treatment and helping each patient achieve full remission. To this end, I collect detailed data on my patients’ treatment outcomes and I publish these data on my blog.
