About ME

If there’s one thing I know, it’s how much people struggle to eat well and stay fit—especially women. My career as a clinical psychologist has spanned over 20 years. I’ve worked with the full spectrum of people who’ve suffered with anorexia, bulimia, and binging—children and adults; women and men; heavy and thin. And in recent years I’ve focused more and more on the “normal”, all-too-common, problems of overeating and weight maintenance. This arose as my previous work convinced me that we all stand to benefit from eating more sanely in this food- and weight-crazy world. In the past I’ve worked in schools, hospitals, and community clinics. I now maintain a busy private practice for both general psychotherapy and diet-related issues. I also offer phone coaching services. I’ve written a self-help workbook, EAT SANELY: Get Off the Diet Roller Coaster for Good, as well as other materials available on my website, (As my very first career was as a writer, I’ve been happy to take back a piece of the writer’s life in this way.) My primary objective has been to help people find healthy solutions to their eating issues. I know that as they find these solutions, they benefit greatly—and not only on the scale. I assume that weight solutions differ from person to person, but the goal remains the same: to find ways of eating that support health and peace of mind. Toward this end, I call on a broad range of skills and knowledge, using cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and insight-oriented pathways as befits each person’s need. I’m excited to bring this work to greater numbers of people as I work on the web and through other new channels.
