AREAS OF INTEREST
Eating Disorder Prevention
I am certified in providing group-based, empirically-supported eating disorder prevention to young adults and adolescents using the Body Project and relevant adaptations. My hope is to provide eating disorder prevention to vulnerable populations, such as LGBTQ+ youth.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Across numerous settings, I have treated anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and subthreshold disordered eating at the outpatient, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization level using empirically supported treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy for eating disorders (CBT-E), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
I have provided full-model dialectical behavior therapy to individuals struggling with borderline personality disorder, chronic suicidality, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. For these patients, I've offered phone-coaching, individual weekly therapy, and weekly group sessions.
Radically-Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT)
I have experience providing individual and group-based radically-open dialectical behavior therapy to individuals experiencing symptoms of overcontrol, often associated with disorders such as anorexia nervosa, social anxiety disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.
