My Approach

“Don’t let fear decide your future.” I help people who’ve learned that they aren’t worthy and feel uncomfortable in their skin overcome seemingly insurmountable fear, self-doubt, perfectionism, and insecurity. A former version of me gets the place that you’re in, combing through a sea of therapists and trying to find someone who you connect with and who can actually help. That former version recovered from an eating disorder what feels like a lifetime ago but will never forget what it’s like to hide and avoid. My experiences inspired me to become a psychologist so that I could find really effective research-based interventions that help people change. Your experience is unique to you and I tailor what I do so that it’s specific to your situation and strengths. I’m passionate about helping people rid themselves of head trash, eliminate debilitating anxiety, get unstuck from unhealthy habits, and heal from trauma caused by toxic relationships, such as infidelity and narcissistic abuse.

My Background

You deserve to live the life you want and I have advanced training to help you get there. My emphasis in grad school was multicultural psychology and I founded the Higher Education Diversity Summit. I’m a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) and have training from Oxford University in enhanced CBT for eating disorders (EDs). I’m trained in CBT for anxiety and phobias from the Beck Institute. I offer Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy for anxiety/phobias, EDs, and more. I have worked on several publications, including original research on laxative abuse, and am education chair of Denver International Assn of ED Professionals (IAEDP). I’m a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) who helps victims of infidelity and narcissistic abuse, esp in high conflict divorce. I’ve worked at multiple universities, the ACUTE Center of Eating Disorders/UC Anschutz Medical School, Avalon Hills Residential ED Treatment Center, and with diverse adults, teens, children, families, and couples.
