Therapy for Personal Growth

Whether you are dealing with eating issues, or would like help and support in other areas of your life, I can help.

There is no single path in life that works for everyone, and we often hit rough patches along the way. Therapy can help us learn to deal more effectively with the stress of life. More and more current research shows that the way we deal with stress is a huge factor in our general health.

Dealing better with our stress can help us with almost everything related to our well-being. Too much stress ages our bodies, weakens our defenses against disease and physiological problems. It can also contribute greatly to substance abuse and disordered eating.

One important way therapy can help is by teaching us to respond to events in our lives, instead of simply reacting to them.

The difference is that a reaction is purely emotional, while a response uses our emotional queues as just one of many pieces of information used to deal with a situation.

In addition to treating eating disorders, I offer therapy in the following areas.
• Mood disorders
• Life Changes
• Grief & Loss
• Trauma

Therapy is a proven tool in finding ways to improve your life. It's ok if you are not ready to make changes -- just contacting a therapist is a very positive and proactive step.

Together we can find what works for you.
