I am thrilled to join Eating and Behavioral Health Associates to further my training in Family Based Treatment (FBT) and Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E), both evidence-based approaches to eating disorder treatment. I work with adolescents to help them understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while targeting symptom reduction and building skills to aid in recovery. I believe the whole family system is an essential resource of eating disorder treatment and recovery.
I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Ohio and am supervised by Lyndsey Pruett, LPCC-S and Chelsea Tobias, LISW-S. I attended Otterbein University and received my Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Communications and Psychology in 2014. After graduation, I worked in community-based non-profit and later attended the University of Dayton, obtaining my Master of Science in Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
Throughout graduate school, I gained clinical experience working with adults, adolescents, and families in Adult PHP and Adolescent Residential at The Emily Program. My time at The Emily Program instilled my love for working with adolescents and made me feel energized and grateful to go to work each day. As a therapist, I am continually evolving, and regularly attending consult groups and trainings to better serve my clients.
