I believe that everyone deserves a safe space to process life's challenges. My goal is to help create that safe space so you can move past obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your full potential. I am most passionate about working with individuals struggling with body dissatisfaction and disordered eating. Using a Health at Every Size and anti-diet approach, I employ a variety of techniques, focusing on building a collaborative, empathic, and trusting therapeutic relationship, free of judgement.
I have a specialized certificate in the treatment of eating disorders, and love working with folks that are looking to heal their relationship with food and body. As a former athlete, I understand the effects of athletic pressure to be perfect, and enjoy working with current and former athletes that want to find peace with food, exercise, and their bodies.
I also have many years of experience working with individuals impacted by anxiety. I enjoy using humor to connect and have found this to be some of my most meaningful work. Whether you are struggling with social anxiety, anxiety surrounding life transitions, or general anxiety, I'd love to work with you!
