Do you feel the pressure to be perfect all the time?...with food, relationships, your job, and even your appearance? Do you look at yourself in old pictures with admiration…only to remember that even then, you weren’t able to appreciate yourself? Maybe you’re tired of stressing over every bite you take and still feeling out of control with food. At this point, maybe it’s hard to even remember a time you didn’t feel like this. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to find joy in your day-to-day again. Most of all, you’re ready for a new "normal" and I can help you get there.
I specialize in helping teens and women of color overcome negative body image and disordered eating to heal their relationship with their bodies and find peace with food. Therapy sessions are talk-based and are a combination of learning and unlearning. I’ll show up as a real person, challenge you when you need it, and be genuinely invested in your journey.
As an experienced eating disorder specialist, I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live a life free from the unforgiving beauty standards and food rules of diet culture. You don’t have to continue feeling as though your value lies in how you look or eat and you definitely don't have to do it alone. Call me today for a free 15-minute consult!

My approach to therapy is behavioral and relational. This allows for learning the connection between your behaviors and thoughts while at the same time fostering a deep connection with yourself and others. I am also trained in Family-Based Treatment, which prioritizes the role of the family in the healing process and is particularly effective for teens and adolescents.
