Are eating, weight, body-image and exercise issues affecting your life?
At the base of all eating disorders and self image issues there is a deep need to be accepted as we are, without having to prove anything externally. Eating is very connected to pleasure, though for people struggling with eating disorders it can be very connected to pain as well.
Are you suffering or having difficulties with any of the following?
- Food and Weight Issues
- Compulsive Overeating
- Binge Eating
- Body Image
- Self Worth
- Self Esteem
- Self Confidence
- Self Love
- Over Exercising

- Endless Feelings of Guilt and Shame
Eating disorders, weight and body-image issues are ruining so many people’s lives. You are not alone. Unfortunately, these issues are very common, even in places that are supposed to be healthier, like here in Boulder, Colorado. It is easy to get obsessed with your health, body, weight and exercise, and it can become very competitive. It becomes impossible to enjoy life, to just naturally eat and exercise for the good and fun of it.
If you are struggling and suffering, I want to help you.
I take the fear out of therapy. My clients quickly feel hope and are able to enjoy their lives and relationships again. I use a somatic, mindfulness based psychotherapy approach that is is person-centered. I have many years of experience helping clients resolve these issues. My clients find me very compassionate, sensitive and understanding.
I used to suffer from eating disorders myself. I know how depressing, scary and lonely it is. I was so confused about what to do and so obsessed about my food, weight and body. It can be very depressing and cause feelings of shame. At times I thought I would be ill forever and never have a normal life. I am happy those times are behind me now.
Going beyond psychotherapy
In addition to my therapy practice, I worked over 20 years as a holistic, naturopathic health practitioner. My specialties were digestion, stomach, intestinal, diet and nutrition issues, as well as anxiety, stress, hormonal and thyroid conditions. This knowledge and experience greatly supports my work when counseling clients with eating disorders.
