I can answer questions specifically geared towards athletes and their eating issues. I would be able to assist parents or coaches with questions or concerns about disordered eating practices often found in the exercise and sports settings. I also have experience in training and conditioning so I am in a position to discus how the two interrelate.
I have a bachelor's degree in sports medicine and master's degrees in sport psychology and clinical counseling. I have done counseling with individuals, couples, and families, with specialization in athletes. Past clients have included triathletes, dancers, college cyclists, and Pro Tour cyclists.

I love the mind/body connection with sports performance.
I hope to pursue additional training in addiction counseling soon.
There are so many aspects involved in eating disorders. So many people going through this have a hard time honestly assessing their lives, but when they do, they realize that often there is involvement with friends, familiy, romantic relationships, past history of trauma or abuse, strained relationships at work or school, and a disconnected relationship with their bodies.
