About My Clients

Hi! I am a self-esteem and body image specialist. I specialize in helping individuals struggling with eating disorders, distorted body image, post-partum transitions and/or depression, work on building up their self-esteem, decrease perfectionism and anxiety, and develop healthy relationships. I help my clients to develop a deeper sense of self-worth, learn boundary setting, and create a happier more fulfilling life.

My Background and Approach

I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist and work with individuals and teens. I want to work collaboratively with you to create a life that is meaningful to you. I will help you explore the ways in which your emotional, mental and physical well-being are interconnected. In addition to talk therapy, I use art, mindfulness, guided breathing and other modalities to facilitate awareness and build coping skills. I am a LGBTQIA affirmative, body positive therapist and incorporate intuitive eating principles into my work. I have nearly ten years of experience both working and studying in the mental health field. My work experience includes both inpatient and outpatient treatment settings, school settings, and non-profit experience.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I came into this work because it helped me turn my life around. Witnessing other clinicians patiently hold onto the hope, dreams, and aliveness that I could not believe in at the time, inspires my work today. There is something incredibly powerful when we are able to connect with others and be accepted exactly as we are in the present. My goal as your therapist is to strengthen and heal the relationship you have with yourself and others. Breaking old behavior patterns and beliefs can be messy, really hard and often takes time. But I believe in my clients, in their story, and their ability to lead a life that feels good to them. I encourage you to reach out for a free phone consultation to see if we are a good match.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
