Hi! Are you looking for a queer, feminist therapist who can support you with body image and eating disorder issues? Would you like a place to feel supported throughout the week and actually look forward to therapy? If so, we could be a good fit! I believe that therapy should be a place where you can feel safe to unpack how you're truly feeling and feel like you have skills to help you move through difficult times. Seeking treatment for your eating disorder/body image issues is hard enough, so I strive to create a safe space to start the journey. My approach is LGBTQ+ affirming and rooted in Health at Every Size.
I specialize in treatment concerning Eating Disorders, Body Image, LGBTQ+, Gender Identity, Women's Issues, with Teens and Adults. I use a holistic approach and I believe that your identity and values are important to your eating disorder recovery journey and should be validated and integrated into your treatment. I believe in person-centered therapy!
If you are looking for LGBTQ+ Feminist care for your eating disorder treatment, you have found the right space. I offer compassionate, client centered care for anyone struggling with body image, disordered eating, or self-harm behavior.
