Services I Offer
Individual or Family Therapy
I offer psychotherapy from a compassionate and non-judgemental relational approach. Explore your relationship with self by learning to identify how your beliefs and self talk may be sabotaging your self esteem. My expertise is in the area of relationship with food and body image, but I also work with individuals going through life changes including loss or relationship changes, as well as adjustment to change such as leaving for college, or recently married.

Here For You
I studied and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, and have been a Psychotherapist in private practice (Austin, Texas) for more than 25 years specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and disordered eating. I've recently relocated to Des Moines, Iowa, and currently offer phone therapy and in office coaching sessions to individuals interested in developing their most positive relationship with food and weight. If you, or a loved one struggle to maintain a stable, healthy weight or consistent food behaviors and would like to work toward healthy intuitive eating, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yoga Instructor, RYT-500
As a Psychotherapist and Yoga Instructor, I love to bring together my professional knowledge with my heartfelt passion for Yoga to encourage positive balance in all areas of life, including food, body image, and a more compassionate relationship with self. Perhaps you already have a Yoga practice, or maybe you are curious about how to begin a healthy practice and integrate Yoga into your recovery. Let's practice living in our bodies, not our thoughts and fears; practice feeling from the inside out, rather than focus on external appearance; and learn what it is like to experience stillness, clarity, calm and focus.
Couples or Family Therapy
Are you struggling with a partner or child with an eating disorder or problem with substance abuse and you aren't sure how to talk to them about your concerns?Couples and Family Therapy offer opportunities to learn new way to communicate about difficult issues.
