Therapy is a collaborative process that allows space and time for self-reflection, growth, and healing. Seeking therapy is an act of courage that can provide support for many challenges.
I consider therapy sessions to be sacred space where clients can safely explore themselves and their challenges, and discover with the therapist what is needed to accomplish their therapeutic goals.
In my role as a therapist, I do my best to work with clients in the ways that feel most supportive to them. My therapeutic work is informed by social justice principles, liberation psychology, Health at Every Size®, indigenous methodologies, psychodynamics, and a wide variety of somatic practices.
I am most interested in working with folks who are struggling with eating disorders and body image issues, including body dysmorphia and body dysphoria. Many of these are challenges that I am personally familiar with, and I bring the knowledge of first-hand experience and recovery to my work.
My goal as a therapist is to support clients in their healing process through the cultivation of inner resources, including self-compassion, self-love, and conscious embodiment.
