About My Clients

Many folks seeking my support may have been struggling in secret for awhile, experiencing uncertainty about therapy or believing they "should've" figured it all out themselves by now. Typically, my clients face a lot of future worry, have fears of judgement or failure, & can't seem to turn that self-critical voice's volume down. Some also feel so overwhelmed by their anxiety-provoking, time-consuming obsessive or intrusive thoughts. You're not alone, you're deserving, & there's a lot we can do!

My Background and Approach

Beginning my career in behavioral health in 2014, I very quickly found my niche working in eating disorder residential treatment at the end of 2015. I spent much of my early training working with male eating disorders, orthorexia, athletes, binge-eating, and extreme OCD-cases. My extensive training and utilization of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) back then easily became a passion of mine, and is just as useful now in my current outpatient work. My passion for these specialties continues to grow, and my clients know that my hope is for them to become their own experts in ERP, and realize they are more than capable, skillful, and confident in the hard work they put into their recovery. In addition to my action-oriented approach of ERP, I also incorporate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into my work with individuals. If we start with what we can control (behavior), there will be noticeable changes in your thoughts and feelings!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a major believer and supporter of emotions, sensitivity, and vulnerability, especially considering we live in a society that views those things as weaknesses. I'm here to tell you they are NOT, and, it still makes a whole ton of sense that most of us struggle with judgment and negative beliefs of feelings. Additionally: I am anti-diet culture, fat positive, weight inclusive, HAES-alligned. I am LGBTQIA+ allied. I am neurodiversity affirming. I am committed to equity, inclusion, and anti-racism. I utilize an intersectional lens. Any and all identities welcome!

I offer online counseling in the following states:
