About me

weight-inclusive, LGBTQIA+ affirming, anti-diet, sex-positive, neurodivergent therapist practicing with compassion and a sense of humor

I take an individualized, integrative, holistic approach to counseling and believe that a trusting, authentic therapist-client relationship is the foundation of any meaningful therapy work. I am an ideal fit for clients who are ready to dig deep and want to be heard and validated while also being challenged and held accountable. You will always be *safe* in sessions with me, but you may not always be *comfortable*. I have been trained in many interventions and I work collaboratively with clients to determine the best course of treatment for each individual. I personally understand the vulnerability and courage it takes to go to counseling and face your struggles, and I consider it an honor to walk your therapy journey with you. I have specialized experience in working with varying levels of disordered eating and sexual shame, and I am passionate about helping clients find freedom and recovery from diet culture and purity culture.

In therapy, I believe everything is relevant. There is no such thing as "too much information;" tell me everything and we can connect the dots together. I believe in a true holistic and multidisciplinary approach and I love to collaborate with physicians, PTs, dietitians, and body workers to help my clients heal their whole selves. I believe that our bodies remember things our minds have forgotten, so we have to include the body in the therapeutic healing process. Most of us are taught to disconnect from our bodies at a young age for various reasons, which results in us learning to abandon not only our bodies but ourselves, trusting outside sources rather than our own intuition about what we feel, think, like, and believe. Real and true emotional healing comes when we are able to reopen the conversation with our bodies, repair that ruptured relationship, and integrate into one gracefully embodied self. You are and have always been the expert on yourself and who you are.
