Accepting Clients

This ain't your mama's counseling. I'm irreverent, out of the box, and so over the stuffiness of traditional therapy.

About My Clients

You're above the age of 15 and wanting to be able to eat food without beating yourself up afterward. You want to be able to stop obsessing about your appearance so you can fully live. I have an extra special place in my heart for my fellow performers.

My Background and Approach

I absolutely love helping folks improve their relationship with food and their body. But after years of living in this culture of dieting and appearance focus - that can be super hard. I've been an eating disorder specialist for the past 6 years.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in Health At Every Size and size inclusivity. That eating disorders and body image struggles are not just found in one body type. I never prescribe weight loss as a way to manage body image concerns. Nor do I ever encourage intentional weight loss to manage binge eating. I believe you know more about yourself than anyone else on the planet and therefore we are in a equal partnership. I don't want to be an authority figure but rather have an equal power dynamic.
