I provide clinical treatment for individuals dealing with eating disorders and other food & body image issues. I practice from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) perspective, while also incorporating tools and skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as needed.
In all sessions I do counseling and I help my clients to explore the principles of HAES and intuitive eating as they are ready. I practice from a trauma-informed perspective and frequently help clients to brainstorm ways in which they can manage difficult life situations and relationships. If the client is also interested in hypnotherapy, then we incorporate a range of different hypnotic techniques into the session which can help to integrate the counseling. I can help support parents who have kids with eating or body issues through education, building compassion skills, and teaching relational skills.
I offer practical and usable nutrition education for those in recovery from eating issues as well as the parents and carers of people with eating disorders. I am a clinical and medical hypnotherapist and assist kids to reconnect with their inner guidance and develop the internal skills and resources to set them up for a life of emotional regulation, self-love, resilience, and happiness. The focus is never on body weight, shape or size, and always on mental wellness. I have 15 years of lived experience with anorexia nervosa and if there was one thing I could change it was that I found great treatment sooner. I am thankful to my parents for never giving up on finding that treatment and making appointments for me because I believe without it I would have lived the rest of my life holding onto moments of forced physical wellness but never quite mentally well.

My approach is eclectic in that my way of being with clients/patients is client-centered, I conceptualize psychodynamically, and I use CBT techniques when indicated. Although I treat adult patients I am willing to work with parents about how best to support their child who has eating/body/weight issues. First and foremost I talk with them about making sure anyone providing treatment to their child is weight neutral and educated in what eating disorders are/are not. I encourage them to rely on those providers to do what they are trained to do and that parents should do the same - that is they are best equipped to love and support their child in a way that no provider can (the caveat to this is FBT/Maudsley method for tx of anorexia nervosa). I allow parents to express their concerns and ask whatever questions they have - providing the best answers I have and/or directing them to exceptional resources.
