EATING DISORDER TREATMENT
Making the decision to get treatment for an Eating Disorder or any issue with food or body image can sometimes require great courage. Prior to starting my own practice, I served as a therapist, Assistant Clinical Director, and Clinical Director at an Eating Disorder Treatment Center in San Francisco. I take a transparent, direct approach to this work, while also respecting the autonomy of each individual's recovery journey.
My method for treatment is a combination of psychodynamic and skills-focussed. This means that we will examine the development of your issue and place it into the context of your life. I will also work with you to develop new strategies to cope with emotions. Depending on your needs, I may recommend for you to work with a dietician while doing therapy.
Some treatment modalities I use when treating Eating Disorders:
-Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy
-Exposure and Response Prevention
-Internal Family Systems Therapy
