Practices In: Naperville
Patients Seen: Adults
I have a pas­sion for work­ing with patients who are seek­ing to improve their health and well­ness, with a spe­cial­ty in bariatric psy­chol­o­gy, obe­si­ty, and addic­tions. I take a down-to-earth approach and aim to ful­ly under­stand my patients, with­out judge­ment, in order to pro­vide the best treat­ment tai­lored to their goals and health needs. I believe the inter­play between health con­di­tions and psy­chol­o­gy is a com­plex one and I aim to approach patient treat­ment holis­ti­cal­ly, fac­tor­ing in many facets that can impact one’s health and well­ness. I use a vari­ety of evi­dence-based ther­a­peu­tic approach­es to my work with patients, empha­siz­ing the best fit for each patient. This can include psy­cho­dy­nam­ic, cog­ni­tive-behav­ioral, dialec­ti­cal-behav­ioral, and accep­tance and com­mit­ment approach­es. I am also well-versed in 12 step work.
