Who I Am
Who I Am
I’ve been working as a therapist and coach since 2003. I’ve been in private practice since 2006 working with women who want to heal disordered eating, emotional eating and negative body image issues.
Before going into private practice full time, I practiced throughout Atlanta in hospital and outpatient settings, addressing a variety of mental health issues. During my time in outpatient settings, I worked extensively with eating disorder issues, and gained invaluable experience in helping people heal their relationship with food.
I’ve also worked as a health coach in a medical setting, collaborating with clinical dietitians and physicians to offer an integrated approach to weight loss, nutrition and disease prevention. From my own experience and through working with eating disorders and in weight loss clinics I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to healthy and sustained weight management. Now I share that healthy approach to as many people as I can.
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, I am also a Member of the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA); a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist; member of the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy; and a Nationally Certified Distance Counselor.
