Professional Interests: My primary professional interest is in treating people struggling with eating disorders. Eating disorders are extremely complex involving a myriad of different clinical methods shown to have promising outcomes. Because people suffering with eating disorders are extremely diverse, it is important to respect each individual client’s needs. I am also very drawn to a process known as “Playback Theatre”. Although Playback Theatre is NOT therapy, it has highly therapeutic outcomes. Playback Theatre is a process of which actors reenact personal stories told by audience members for all to bear witness.
Personal Interests: Music, theatre, writing, hiking, dogs, bargain hunting, spending time with family.
