Approach to wellness:
I believe that when we label a behavior as “bad”, “wrong” or “problematic,” it becomes impossible to cultivate any curiosity about what that behavior has to teach us and usually means we must endure problems for a longer period of time. Whether it seems clear to us in the moment, we are usually doing the best we can, and when we ask the right questions, the path to improved wellness is revealed.
I love, love, love tennis—playing and watching, so in my spare time you will find me on or near a court somewhere. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, kayaking, making art, riding bikes, watching Bob’s Burgers, playing with our dogs, or enjoying the wildlife in our backyard. I am a licensed psychoptherapist with over 20 years of experience specializing in eating and body image issues.
