About My Clients

I strongly believe in taking a unique approach for each client that I meet. I find so much joy in helping people problem-solve how to manage the situations that are currently upsetting, as well as going into the past to learn more about why you're struggling. Digging into your past and present takes a lot of courage. I would love to hear from you about what you need and how we can work together to help you build a more satisfying future.

My Background and Approach

Eating Disorder and Trauma Therapist: I've worked with residential, PHP, and IOP for eating disorder treatment, as well as weekly therapy. I strongly believe in the HAES and Intuitive Eating approach. I'm passionate about supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders and supporting them into finding full recovery and healing. In addition to treating eating disorders, I have considerable experience with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and personality disorders. I often focus on the impact of attachment and relationships on mental health. You can learn more about me at www.grow-counseling.org

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and advocate and support for BLM, racial equality, body acceptance and trans-acceptance. Our society has a bad habit of marginalizing large groups of people and it's hard to watch - my hope would always be that therapy is the safest place for you to explore your own experiences and know that you're seen and supported.

I have experience with the following
  • Christianity
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
