Accepting new clients! Are you struggling to find a disordered eating therapist who actually gets it? Are you tired of food and eating taking over your life? If you’re looking to make peace with food once and for all, free yourself from disordered eating, and ditch diet culture, then you’ve come to the right place. Here, your body size or weight will be respected just the way it is. You will explore what it means to eat according to your own internal wisdom instead of some else’s expectation. You will receive eating disorder recovery support that is realistic and empathetic.
You’re in the right place if your body is in a constant heightened and activated state; survival mode is no longer serving you and it is possible to feel more calm and at peace with your life. If a dark fog is hanging over you and daily tasks or situations feel like a mountain to climb, I can help things feel a little less hard.
I am a white, anglophone, able-bodied, straight-sized, Queer/Bisexual, cis-gender woman of settler background. I am a Registered Social Worker, Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor, and WPATH trained clinician for individuals seeking gender affirming care. Serving clients living in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, & Ontario.
