I have been practicing in Atlanta since 1998. As part of the specialty team at The Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders, I assessed and treated women and men suffering from eating disorders and accompanying issues for more than 12 years. In 2010, my practice transitioned to a private practice setting at Midtown Psychotherapy Associates where I continue to treat clients presenting with eating disorders or eating concerns, anxiety, depression, and transitional or adjustment issues. Taking a direct, yet kind and caring approach, I enjoy working within the frameworks of temperament and Positive Psychology in order to better understand an individual's challenges and draw from his or her strengths and talents. In addition to individual therapy, I offer couples therapy and groups. Other areas of interest include raising resilient children in a challenging culture, the highly sensitive temperament, and abortion decision-making and recovery. I am also trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), a groundbreaking and extensively researched treatment for trauma and for moving past a stuck place in therapy.
