I partner with clients whose goals range from healing body shame and disordered eating to enhancing athletic performance or adjusting to living with chronic illness. Throughout the process, we explore new ways of relating with yourself, examine any obstacles along the way, and take manageable steps towards your goals. You get to decide how healing, recovery and growth will look like for you. I am simply a guide as you implement meaningful change and discover your own advocate, carer, and champion from within.

It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards.
