About My Clients

Are you struggling with finding peace in your body? Is your relationship with food obsessive and complicated? Has your food intake become scary or secretive? I'm here to help. You can have a peaceful relationship with food—freeing you to focus on all the other important areas of your life. Through our work we will begin to explore your body story and examine negative core beliefs that are keeping you stuck in this mind set.

My Background and Approach

My mission is to help you build a loving and trusting relationship with your body. Together we will explore your past history of experiences, relationships, and the social constructs that have led you to believe that your body is something that "needs to be fixed". Our work will be focused on healing those experiences, and applying lessons to your current life. In our work we will examine how your disordered eating or negative body image is impacting your life, relationships and larger goals. We will work towards letting go of the insecurities that are holding you back from living fully and showing up authentically.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a counselor I will bring a sense of curiosity, compassion and warmth to our sessions and work we do together. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. Through a variety of therapeutic modalities, and listening to your individual needs, together we will will create a peaceful environment for healing and growth to occur.
