I am an author, psychotherapist, consultant and speaker. I have worked for over 15 years as a therapist and currently have a private practice specializing in the treatment of women’s issues issues in Atlanta, GA. have a passion for working with women and strive to provide a supportive place for my clients to explore and heal their relationship with food, self image, spirituality (connection to that which goes deeper than the physical) & personal development.
I started my private practice in 2006 and specialize in working with women who want to heal disordered eating, emotional eating and negative body image issues. I also work with individuals around issues that are commonly present with disordered eating, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, addiction, codependency, and self esteem concerns.
Before going into private practice full time, I practiced throughout Atlanta in hospital and outpatient settings, addressing a variety of mental health issues. I’ve also worked as a health coach in a medical setting, collaborating with clinical dietitians and physicians to offer an integrated approach to emotional wellness, nutrition and disease prevention. In 2013, I co-founded Creative Health Initiatives, CHI, an organization that provides psychotherapy groups for women as well as consultation and mentorship to therapists and organizations.
My formal training includes a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Wofford College, and a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, I am also a Member of the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA); a member of IADEP (International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals); a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist; member of the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy; and a Nationally Certified Distance Counselor.
Outside of the therapy office, I also offer workshops and programs designed to teach people about emotional eating, healing the relationship with food, and reclaiming their internal authority in the creation of their life.
In 2018 I published, Ending The Diet Mindset: Reclaim A Healthy and Balanced With Food and Body Image, a book designed to help all women heal from our cultural obsession with body image and dieting. This has opened the door for me to have the pleasure of speaking to organizations and presenting nationally, educating families, clients and clinicians on the treatment of eating disorders. In 2019 I launched a series of online programs, including The Self Love Journey and Life Beyond The Diet, designed to provide an at home model for recovery and self development that can reach individuals world wide.
