About

Are you tired of working with therapists who just don't seem to get it? Have you tried Eating Disorder and/or OCD therapy that seems to have been made for anyone but you- only left to feel like maybe you are the problem? As a recovered survivor and now therapist, I know this couldn't be further from the truth. I believe in everyone's innate ability to find healing through through the safety of relationship. Living with an Eating Disorder or OCD is exhausting, dark and all consuming. Together, we can find ways to improve your quality of life so that you may discover a life that is meaningful to you.
I am an anti-oppression Eating Disorder + OCD therapist who takes a justice oriented approach to therapy. This means your treatment is individualized, your identities are affirmed + our relationship is the most important part of the healing process. I aim to center your agency and help you restore the self trust needed to find the freedom you desire.
While our therapeutic alliance and relational safety takes precedence over any modality, I commonly integrate Liberation Psychology, Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Interpersonal Relational Therapy, Somatic Therapy, DBT, ERP and Ketamine Assisted Therapy- depending on your desires and needs.
