About My Clients

Are you fighting a constant battle against food and hating your body? Are you afraid of passing on your food and body struggles to your children? Whether you have a clinical eating disorder or have lived a lifetime of weight cycling and food restriction, I'm here to help. If you are a therapist, finding healing in your own relationship with your body and food can positively impact your clients! If you are someone looking for food freedom and body trust, I'm here for you.

My Background and Approach

I have a background in child sexual abuse/trauma, parenting, and eating disorders. Previously a play therapist, I now specialize in eating disorder treatment, pregnancy complications and loss. I received my master's degree from UTTyler, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor- Supervisor and am working to become a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. Through my own food freedom and body acceptance journey, I've seen the beautiful world outside of diet culture and I want to offer that to you. As a therapist, I know how impactful it can be to do your own work, but sometimes it's difficult to find a safe space to do the deep work needed for your own healing. I want to help you learn to identify what's beyond your food and body thoughts, move into emotion in a safe way, and ultimately find the joy in your life. I won't promise you a life of happiness with no discomfort, but I will be in your discomfort with you!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The first thing to know about me is that I am a deep lover of Jesus Christ. I don't like the term Christian because culturally there's been a large misrepresentation what a follower of Christ really looks like. No matter what your spiritual or political beliefs, I want to love you as I believe Jesus loves you. I am passionate about walking with people to meet the true Jesus. I'm married to the man of my dreams and we own and operate a pet service business. We have two boys that are really the best in the whole world and hope to have our own little gaggle of baseball players. Speaking of baseball- I love all things baseball and unashamedly am trying to brainwash my sons to love it. I'm a Ranger's fan, but I play fantasy baseball and love all of baseball. In my free time I'm either reading, writing, or crocheting. I grew up riding horses and raising goats and miss the farm life.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Christianity
