Are you sick and tired of struggling with food/body image/diet/exercise/etc all the time? When you are "in it" your anxiety and/or depression gets worse. Sometimes you wonder if it's the "food stuff" that increases the anxiety/depression or vice versa? I know exactly how you are feeling: uncomfortable in your own skin, fantasize of a different body, unworthy, disgusting etc. You do not have to live this any more, and I look forward to getting you there so you can focus on what actually matters.
I'm a licensed therapist and certified intuitive eating coach and able to work with both types of clients in my separate practices. If you're unsure what would work best for you, we can figure this out together. I am all about real life skills, tools and strategies for myself and you. I will give a mix of logistical skills as well as a psychological insight. I want you to get better and therefore I know you will not need to see me forever (unless you want to). If you are ready and willing to do the work, then you'll be on your way. My goal for you is to leave therapy knowing how to do it on your own and feeling confident to push through, because you know you got this. I am direct and utilize the following modalities: solution focused, CBT and Client centered.
I truly believe that people can change. In order for change to happen there has to be a desire and willingness. There can be several factors at play with developing eating disorders and disordered eating: unhealthy learned behaviors, societal norms, perfectionism, trauma, social media and our environment and DIET CULTURE (to name a few). You have the power to unlearn these unhealthy coping skills or bad habits. I know you can change because I've seen in with my clients and myself. Besides therapy (helping people) being a passion, so is dancing. I LOVE to move my body and dance. I don't discriminate against anyone. I support "Health at Every Size", "Intuitive Eating", "All Foods Fit" and "Body Neutrality" movements. If you want to learn more about how I can help you, shoot me a message.
