Hi! I'm an eating disorder and body image specialist. I help folks from all walks of life heal their relationship with food and their body.
Psychotherapist in Boone, NC
To be blunt, eating disorders suck. Even if the term “eating disorder” doesn’t resonate with you, we can work on healing your relationship with your body and food. I offer a warm and supportive way of understanding eating disorders like bulimia, anorexia, binge eating disorder, and other difficult emotions and patterns related to your relationship with food and body. My practice is deeply rooted in the Health at Every Size® and intuitive eating frameworks.
Body image is defined as the thoughts, feelings, and perceptions we have about the body we live in. Unfortunately, we can be our own worst critics and fall into a pattern of telling ourselves some pretty harmful things. Many of us begin this at an early age, which makes it challenging to stop the self hate patterns alone. It takes some work, but healing your relationship with your body is possible. I would love to hear from you if you’re ready to take action.
As a "recovering people pleaser" myself, I love helping others navigate the challenging waters of anxiety. For some, this means working through "worst case scenario" thinking and for others it is learning to enjoy social events without feeling like a nervous wreck. Regardless of the source of your anxiety, I am here to support you through it.
