Our intake process is 60 minutes. This will be your first session with your therapist. The purpose of the intake session is for the therapist and you to create the most whole and accurate picture of you as possible. In other words, this is a time where your therapist goes over all there is to know (as if that’s possible in one session) about you to help gather a picture to help you both out. One way in which your therapist gets to know you is through the use of forms.
Binge Eating Disorder
Individuals with binge eating disorder (BED) experience recurrent episodes of eating too much, eating too quickly, and eating until they’re painfully full. They also regularly feel ashamed, disgusted, distressed, and depressed about their bingeing.
Body Image Coaching
Body image involves two key elements: how you see your physical body (including size, shape, and appearance), and your attitude toward your physical self (such as thoughts, feelings and beliefs about your body). Coaching is for anyone looking to make positive changes in their life. I offer coaching services to help women create and sustain a positive relationship with food, their body and their mind.
Borderline personality disorder is a mental health disorder that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. It includes self-image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an empirically supported treatment for this disorder. DBT treatment consists of clients attending DBT Skills Groups and individual therapy with a DBT therapist.
Life transitions are usually life changing events that cause us to re-examine our present sense of being. They can be predictable such as a move, an accident or a new job. Our goal is to help individuals get through these emotionally taxing life changes using healthy coping mechanisms.
