Licensed Clinical Social Worker in St. Louis, MO
I strongly believe that there is a body image crisis in our culture, manufactured by the media, beauty companies/advertisers, diet culture, and the patriarchy. I am a fat-positive therapist who has studied the work of Lindo Bacon (Health at Every Size, Body Respect) and is part of a community of therapists committed to body acceptance principles for clients of all body types. If you have struggled with feeling worthy in your body, I would be honored to walk the path to healing with you.
Depression is a tricky beast. It convinces you that things are hopeless and unfixable, and that joy will always be elusive. If you're reading this, however, you have tapped into hope and you're ready to make a change. I'm here to help you make that change. There are a variety of tools and techniques we can use, and I'm committed to finding the ones that are right for you. I welcome and actively seek feedback from my clients to ensure that we are on the right path to achieving wellness.
"If you're not worried, you're not paying attention." This certainly rings true for those of us who try to stay awake in the world and care about injustice, inequity and the suffering of others. But when healthy worry escalates to uncontrolled anxiety you may lose the ability to do the things you want to do, and live the life you want to live - and that helps no one. I'm equipped to work with you to honor your valid worries, while addressing and healing distressing anxiety.
