As a Psychologist Certified Group Psychotherapist, I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, emotional overeating, and relationship issues. I use a combination of individual and group psychotherapy to help people understand the underlying causes of their distress and to help them make new healthier choices.
I am also the author of three books. My first book entitled Self-fullness: The Art of Loving and Caring For Your ‘Self’ is designed to help its readers improve the relationship they have with themselves. Among the topics the book addresses are: self-esteem, physical fitness, health, relationships, grooming, finances, home life, and spirituality. The book also teaches a wide array of coping skills, such as action planning, time management, conflict resolution, better decision-making, and goal setting.
My second book, Do You Use Food to Cope? A Comprehensive 15-Week Program for Overcoming Emotional Overeating is based on my doctoral dissertation and extensive research into the relationship between eating and coping. This book helps its readers uncover the emotional roots for their eating behaviors and learn new, healthier and more constructive ways to deal with their emotions. The book is complete with a structured program, written exercises, and worksheets which take the reader through the steps necessary to understand the relationship between food and emotions. By the end of the 15 weeks the reader has a plan for dealing with their emotional life without turning to food as a coping mechanism.
My third book, The Best Diet Begins in Your Mind, looks at the 8 emotions people eat in response to the most and to cope with them without turning to food.
Each of my books can be used as part of your therapy process if you desire.
