About My Clients

I offer self-compassion focused therapy for people who struggle with body dissatisfaction and disconnection, self-worth and insecurity in life transitions, and aging and chronic illness. Informed by somatic and mindfulness practices, I help people find more peace with their bodies and trust in their emotional resiliency.

My Background and Approach

Using eclectic techniques, I work with individuals and groups to deepen their relationships with their bodies, get more in touch with their emotions, and build community. My approach is gentle, but direct, and with a heavy dose of humor. I am a therapist, teacher, community organizer, artist, and healer.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a committed Healthy at Every Size (HAES; https://haescommunity.com) practitioner who works with body dissatisfaction and intuitive eating. HAES therapy is anti- "diet culture" and believes all bodies are worthy of love, pleasure, and justice no matter size, shape, color, age, or ability.
