How I can help you
I take an empathetic and non-judgmental approach when working with my patients and will work collaboratively to identify each patient’s desired goals and direction for successful treatment and change. I practices in a respectful and flexible manner in order to pursue empowerment and wellbeing for both patients and their families alike. Treatment approaches for adolescents and adults: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT); Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT); Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); and Gottman Couples Therapy. Specific eating disorder treatment approaches for children, adolescents and adults: Family Based Treatment (FBT) for Child & Adolescent eating disorders; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – Enhanced (CBT-E) for eating disorders; Specialist Supportive Clinical Management (SSCM) for eating disorders; Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adults (MANTRA); Adolescent Focused Therapy (AFT) for eating disorders; and Modified FBT and CBT for ARFID.
Why I am specialized in this field
I work with a range of mental health concerns, however I have extensive specialist knowledge and experience in treating eating disorders. This passion has led me to become an internationally certified therapist for Family Based Treatment for child and adolescent Anorexia Nervosa, which is the recommended first-line treatment for this age group and diagnosis. I also have extensive training and experience in all of the current first-line evidence-based treatments for Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) for children, adolescents and adults.

I would love to connect with you!
