I also implement Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for practical coping skills to use in the day to day.
Eating disorders can be all encompassing and can start to take over so many different aspects of your life. It becomes hard to do anything without hearing the eating disorder’s disapproving voice in your head making comments about your food intake, your body, and most painfully, who you are as a person. This voice is not you. We can work together to help you fight back and regain your identity. You do not need to have an eating disorder for us to work together, I also work with those struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, life transitions, trauma, relationships, and identity.

I teach my clients skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I specialize in providing support to individuals with eating disorders, disordered eating, and those who want to improve their relationship with food and their body. While challenges with food and body may be what brings a client to see me, I know that these struggles do not exist in a vacuum. This is why I take a holistic approach and support my clients in exploring and learning ways to cope with anxiety, depression, relational conflict, trauma symptoms and other life challenges. In addition to working with client's with eating disorders, I am also a rostered provider in Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD.

I often utilize EMDR, CBT, or DBT in my practice and passionately serve survivors of trauma, particularly survivors of domestic and sexual violence, as well as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and life changes.
Whether you feel unable to live the life you desire because of painful childhood experiences, traumatic memories, limiting core beliefs, insecure attachments in relationships, or for reasons completely unique to your own life experiences, it IS possible to find healing. You CAN live a life that feels most authentic to who you are, even if it seems unattainable. Using mind-body approaches and evidence-based techniques, I hope to facilitate your access to the innate and powerful resources that exist, and ultimately empower you to create a life that is meaningful and representative of who you want to be.

I'm an integrative EMDR therapist, with training in Internal Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Ketamine Assisted Therapy, as well as a mindfulness meditation teacher and practitioner.
I help people work through trauma, painful childhood experiences, grief and loss, as well as addictive and compulsive behaviors, in order to connect with their inherent capacity for joy and freedom. It's easy to get trapped in old emotional patterns, struggle in unsatisfying relationships, or overwhelmed with worries of how to navigate the future. We can work together collaboratively to identify your needs, and find the unique solutions that will allow you to not just survive, but to thrive. It's possible to find a way out of whatever is keeping you stuck, and experience transformational healing and change.

For clients exploring non monogamy I provide a safe space to explore uncertainties, insecurities, and fears while also celebrating many of the joys this relationship style brings. I also work with many clients who may be questioning their gender or sexual identity. I also work with many clients who have experienced trauma, dissociation, and attachment wounding and family of origin issues.

In my practice I am guided by the belief that change is possible and that every person has the capacity for healthy growth and development but may at times need help in accessing inner resources for positive change. I believe a therapist-client relationship that is characterized by empathy, curiosity, acceptance and caring is what facilitates the therapeutic process. I aim to provide an environment where my clients feel safe and free to explore their feelings, thoughts, needs and goals - an environment where we can work together at understanding what is keeping them from living a more fulfilling life.
