Announcement icon All sessions are virtual (video or phone) at this time due to the public health crisis. Your safety is of the utmost importance to me!
From the outside-it might look like you have everything together. However, you can't stop thinking about food and your body. Your life is starting to revolve around planning binges and purges, restricting, compulsive exercise and/or body image distress. Or, perhaps you are becoming consumed with intrusive, dark, scary, weird thoughts that trigger anxiety. Thoughts that won't seem to leave you alone and feel too embarrassing to tell others about. You might feel unsure of reaching out for help, but deep down you know something needs to change. Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, anxiety, trauma or OCD- I can help!
You don't have to do this alone. You don't have to wake up everyday hating your body, worrying about what you will eat or how you will exercise. You don't have to let scary intrusive thoughts take over your life and make you miss out on important moments. Freedom is 100% possible- I know because I have done it and watched so many others do the same.
It is my passion to help people recover from eating disorders and OCD. I have had great success in helping people rediscover their true selves and find freedom from their illness. I am recovered myself, and while no two journeys are alike-I have deep empathy for anyone struggling. Visit my website and schedule a consult today!
