Accepting Clients

I'm an eating disorder and body image therapist who helps people make peace with their relationships to food, their bodies, and themselves.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL

About My Clients

Many of my clients express a deep longing to be known, but a simultaneous fear of being seen for who they are. Maybe you wonder how you got here: monitoring every bite of food that goes into your mouth or constantly checking your body in the mirror. You may have a lot of external markers of success and most people would have no idea how lonely and overwhelmed you feel inside and how hard it feels to get through the day.

My Background and Approach

My practice is rooted in body liberation, meaning I believe all bodies are deeply worthy of acceptance, compassion, and care and understand that many people considering therapy may be carrying the baggage of living in a world where it isn’t safe to accept yourself. I love combining my clinical experience with my clients' lived experience to create a space in which meaningful change can occur. I'm a past fellow in the University of Chicago's Contextual Behavior Therapy fellowship, a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and supervisor through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals, and am currently receiving training from the Internal Family Systems (Institute).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work from a Health at Every Size (HAES) framework and appreciate the rich diversity that exists amongst different body shapes and sizes. I believe effective treatment for eating disorders and body image issues involves nuanced conversation about navigating a medical system and a culture preoccupied with weight and size. Formal eating disorder diagnosis or not, we live in a culture where it’s near impossible to exist without being impacted by critical stories about our bodies or food, and no one comes out of diet culture unscathed.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
