I seek to help all individuals make peace with food as they learn to trust their inherent body wisdom through attunement and somatic connection. I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor with extensive training in somatic and mindfulness-based treatment approaches. I value taking a comprehensive and holistic approach to treatment, which includes supporting parents in navigating the journey of their child's recovery.

If you are struggling in your relationship with your body you are certainly not alone. Eating disorders, trauma, and anxiety often go hand and hand and can be worsened by providers who focus on weight instead of emotional and physical wellness. I offer a weight neutral approach to healing your relationship with food and your body. I see you as a whole person and will help you see how the experiences and influences in your life have negatively impacted how you see yourself. I am licensed in Ohio and therefore can only work with you if you reside in Ohio.
Lieba Swartz-Brownstein, LMSW
I provide client-centered care that helps individuals engage in their lives in a way that feels authentic and whole. I value creating therapeutic spaces in which my clients feel that all of them is welcome – the good, the bad, the healing, the trying, and everything in-between. My goal for my clients is to help them live a life of value and to feel they have the tools and skills they need to “live a life worth living,” as DBT founder Marsha Linahan would say. I want my clients to know their worth, their value, and their brave, so they can live lives full of love, belonging, and acceptance.

Three Birds Counseling & Clinical Supervision provides Fat Positive, Queer Affirming, Faith Affirming and Trauma-Informed therapy and Clinical Supervision in English and Spanish. All providers specialize in eating disorders and body image concerns, are trained in a trauma protocol (i.e., EMDR, Brainspotting, TFCBT, IFS, DBT, DCT), and operate from a Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating approach. We provide hardship evaluations in English and Spanish for loved ones of individuals facing deportation or seeking asylum and gestational carrier/donor candidate evaluations and consultation. We also help those walking the scary and painful path of infertility and pregnancy loss, and the exhausting experience of anxiety and trauma, both of which often overlap body and food concerns.

Melodye Phillips, LPC-S
Navigating parenthood can be an extremely difficult in many areas, but navigating a healthy relationship with food and body in yourself and your children often proves to be overwhelming in our culture. My role would be to support you as a parent in finding food and body freedom from rules, restriction, and harm associated with disordered eating, eating disorders, and body image issues. I primarily utilize a systems approach and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in helping those in individual, parenting, and group sessions.

Monique Bellefleur, Ed.M, LMHC
I utilize a strengths-based, eating disorder and Health at Every Size informed approach to therapy and parent coaching. I am certified to lead the Confident Body Confident Child program, which is evidence-based to help parents guide their child in developing a healthy relationship with food without negatively affecting their child's body image. I am also a certified trainer and leader of The Body Project, which helps teenage girls challenge the "appearance ideal" by developing cognitive dissonance between societal ideals of beauty and the girl's own values. I use these trainings and my experience working in the eating disorder field to help support parents who are trying to raise their children to be body confident and have a healthy, flexible relationship to food.
