I'm a fat positive, polyamory/ENM informed, and kink affirming therapist specializing in body image and queer imposter syndrome in Michigan
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , MI
I specialize in the treatment of disordered eating, chronic dieting, and poor body image for those in marginalized bodies. I work from a Health at Every Size©, weight-inclusive paradigm and am training to become Body Trust® certified, a liberatory healing modality based on feminist and social justice principles.
As a late-blooming cisgender queer femme, I can provide a unique healing perspective to those who are in their 20’s or above, who may or may not be in a committed relationship, and are struggling to come to terms with their identity.
In 2017, I completed the comprehensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy through the DBT Institute of Michigan. I co-facilitated a DBT Skills Group in 2018. Our work will be DBT informed and consistently utilized if there is a need for this service.
Having experienced my own grief journey with the loss of my father, I am uniquely qualified to walk with you through your own grief, whether it be grieving the loss of a loved one, a divorce, or any life changes that bring out the experience of grieving.
Working from a Health at Every Size standpoint, I am here to help you unlearn all of the negative things society and the people in your life have told you about your body (and that you continue to tell yourself).
