For anyone who is struggling with their relationship with food, exercise, or their body. You might already have an eating disorder diagnosis (e.g., binge eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, "atypical" anorexia nervosa, OSFED) or you might struggle with disordered eating or a cycle of dieting. Maybe you find yourself eating in response to stress or emotions. You might compulsively or excessively exercise or maybe you avoid exercise all together. Maybe you are struggling with body image difficulties or grief around how your body does or doesn't function.
I'm a psychologist and clinical psychology registrar with a background as an exercise physiologist. I have a specific interest in helping people struggling with eating, exercise, or body concerns and have worked and trained in this field for over a decade. I offer a variety of therapy approaches via telehealth.
I value providing care that is inclusive, compassionate, and non-pathologising. No matter how big or small you perceive your difficulties to be, you are worthy of care. Humans of any size, sexuality, gender, cultural background, race, and neurotype are welcome here. Please reach out if you would like to find out more about how I can support you.
