My clients are typically adolescents through older adults that are struggling with a disordered relationship with food, body image concerns, and other mental health issues such as depression, anxiety or trauma. If you are someone that is struggling with your relationship with food and your body or are struggling with chronic dieting, the goal of therapy is to help you explore and challenge diet culture and build a more neutral relationship with your body.
My Background and Approach
As a licensed clinical social worker I look at people and their struggles through a systems approach, examining the systems of inequality that contribute to people's mental health. I deeply value authenticity and always try to show up as my authentic self in the therapeutic space. I engage client's in therapy through a client-centered approach and believe in prioritizing the client's individual needs. As a clinician that specializes in the treatment of eating disorders and also as a woman that resides in a larger body, I also practice from a Health at Every Size (HAES) framework. I strive to create a safe, weight-neutral space for all clients to explore the impacts of weight stigma, and support clients in making peace with food and their bodies.
