Do you find yourself using your relationship with food as a way to keep your uncomfortable emotions at bay, only to find this emotion pops back up with vengeance after restricting, binging, or purging? Your eating disorder has helped you survive a traumatic and stressful environment, yet you now realize it is no longer needed to keep you afloat. Now what kept you alive for so long is holding you back from moving forward with your life. You want to make a change yet are uncertain how to even start healing your relationship with food and your body.

When we are feeling lost and uncertain, we have the opportunity to discover the most about ourselves. I firmly believe in the healing power of relationship and shared story. I offer counseling rooted in compassion, connection, care, and kindness. As a therapist, it is my privilege to provide support and skills to help you on your journey in regaining insight, clarity, and joy in your life.
