In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

Jesus transformed me, and he can transform your child's health and your relationship with him or her, as well. He is integral in every Christian counseling session, as I pray for His presence to guide me in using my education, skills, and expertise to bring healing to your child and family.

How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

Collaborating with other professionals is essential, especially when helping clients with children who suffer with eating disorders. I will not only recommend working with a registered dietician specializing in eating disorders, but I will also connect with him or her regularly, to keep abreast of your child's progress with them. Connection with psychiatrists and medical doctors is important, as well, for your child's overall health.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

Eating disorders are so misunderstood. You may ask yourself, "Why won't my child just EAT? It's not that hard...is it?" It actually is quite difficult for anyone suffering with anorexia, bulimia, or other serious eating disorders, to have a normal, healthy relationship with food. I will help you understand eating disorders in all their forms and teach you to validate your child's feelings, so they will know you are on their side and willing to help them heal.

Work History

I have dedicated my career to adolescents and their parents--first, as a public school teacher for over 15 years, and now as a licensed counselor. I use my expertise with kids and their families to bring healing for the damage that eating disorders bring. I have worked extensively with adolescents and some adults with eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder at a partial hospitalization program since 2018.
