I don’t believe in perpetuating the stigma surrounding recovery from an eating disorder. I believe eating disorder recovery is a social justice issue. Eating disorders are not white, female, straight, thin, or young. I work openly and honestly with you along the recovery journey, helping guide you in learning to live in a world dripping in a culture obsessed with food, body image, and fitness. My pledge to you is to do my best to remove stigma's from our work together.
I offer affordable psychotherapy or recovery mentoring to those struggling with eating disorders. I work with people - not a diagnosis. Over the years, I have worked extensively with people struggling with eating disorders. I have worked in various well-known treatment facilities among individuals at all levels of care. I have been witness to all types of eating disorders and know that no disorder looks the same. As a mental health provider, I am here to learn about your experience and where you wish to go in the future.
I come from a client-centered perspective where we will work collaboratively to find a recovery approach that feels best for you. I am also a trained yoga teacher, as well as a professional artist. I have seen the power of merging these aspects into my work to deepen the client's exploration of their creativity and connection with their body.
I chose this line of work because I am passionate about empowering individuals to reach their full potential. Each person is unique, and it is an honor to walk alongside them in their journey towards well-being. Every step along the therapeutic journey demonstrates the bravery which accompanies vulnerability, and that is a joy to witness.
