Announcement icon For the safety of all, I am now serving folx struggling with food, their body, or trauma history virtually. Schedule a consultation today!
Do you find that you regularly battle with your body and brain? Second guessing what to say, ashamed of your body, and judgmental of your thoughts? Do you utilize food to avoid emotionally or to force your body into a different look? Is trauma impacting your relationships? You are not alone. Health is not a static place to achieve that defines who you are as a person, rather it is a continuum we have that ebbs and flows as we engage in our lives. As we continue to strive for unachievable perfection, we end up with intrusive, ruminative negative thoughts and in a constant power struggle with our brain and body.
There is hope. I use a holistic, health at every size, integrative, trauma-informed approach to therapy, as no one person is the same. I have spent years honing in a niche that addresses the mind and body relationship impacted by eating disorders, traumatic experiences, pregnancy / postpartum growth, severe anxiety and mood concerns.
It is a challenging, perfection praised world. I hope to create a space where you can practice living in grace, enhance engagement with your mind and body, and be empowered in your life. Please check out my website to learn more, and see if I’m the right fit for you. If you’re ready to connect, hit the call button or message me through my website.
