My clinical focus lies with eating disorders and body image issues. I have worked in the eating disorder treatment community for 7+ years in a variety of capacities including inpatient, residential, and crisis stabilization programs. I am passionate about eating disorder recovery and collaborating with patients to find balance in their lives. I am anti-diet and HAES aligned. Therapy provides a safe space to be yourself in a supportive environment, helping to meet you where you’re at and work towards creating lasting change.
I am a certified eating disorder specialist, supporting individuals to develop a healthier relationship with food and their body, from eating disorders and everything in between, as well as low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, low motivation, adjusting to adulthood, perfectionism, managing everyday stressors, and relationship issues.
I’m not a smile-and-nod, sit in silence type of therapist. I'll call you out on your BS, but I can do that in a way where we can both laugh. I'm not afraid to talk about anything you need to talk about. Intrusive thoughts? Feeling like you’re the only person to feel this way? You’d be surprised to find that you’re not alone.
