About My Clients

Taking the first step to seek therapy can be anxiety inducing especially when you struggle with an eating disorder in a world that celebrates disordered eating and an ideal body type. My clients come to me whether this is their first time or their 100th time in wanting to break from the disruptive thoughts and behaviors that have had a negative impact on their well-being. I work with individuals looking to create a more peaceful relationship with food and body image.

My Background and Approach

I am a certified eating disorder specialist and consultant through the international association of eating disorder professionals and have worked at different levels of care (residential, php and iop) in the eating disorder field. Together we will create a plan to help create better peace with food and body image. I help my clients learn tools to navigate through the feelings of depression, anxiety, and grief. I believe therapy is a collaborative approach and I combine evidence based practices with your lived experiences. We'll address the systems at play that keep you stuck in your disorder and how to create the life you want to be living. Grief work can not only be applied to your person dying but can also be applied to grieving the loss of your eating disorder, the loss of the ideal body, or losing the "what could have been". I have been trained by the Grief House in Los Angeles, and apply these coping tools to all different forms of grief.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As someone who has struggled with an eating disorder, living in a fat body, and has experience loss and anxiety, I hope that can instill hope and the tools to help walk through these difficult issues. I do not see therapy as a one size fits all and at times will bring in a harm reduction approach. Loss is a tough one. I will never tell you, "time heals all wounds " because maybe it doesn't and that is okay. I hope that the space I create feels supportive and inclusive.
