"Individual therapy is a collaborative process to help you see that you can be much more than your eating disorder. I utilize a multitude of techniques in session. The tools I most use to assist my clients, in a manner that meets their needs are: finding meaning and purpose of your eating disorder, developing coping skills, interpersonal process, experiential techniques, focus on client strengths, and behavioral challenges. While treatment can be challenging, it is more an investment to help you move past your eating disorder and living a life that aligns with your values."

Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

"Sometimes amazing things can grow under pressure. Living with stigma - related to a mind that works differently, a body that's unruly or "too much," or a sexuality that doesn't fit behind a white picket fence - asks us to be creative and fierce. The wisdom that can grow here is astounding. But the burden of stigma is heavy, and sometimes it twists and catches us in painful positions. Whether you're feeling exhausted, sick of yourself, or just don't know quite how to relate to other people, therapy with me can help."

My clients tend to describe me as relaxed, unconventional, and thoughtful in my style of practice. I work relationally which means that I believe the trust and understanding built in therapy is itself healing.
