I am a HAES and anti-diet focused treatment provider of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for eating disorders (CBT-E), Family Based Treatment for adolescents with eating disorders (FBT) & Body-positive parenting. I also co-host a weekly podcast about body-positive parenting routed in HAES for the whole family. .
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.
I am a trained Maternal Mental Health Specialist in addition to many years of experience working with individuals struggling with an eating disorder. I specialize in mindfulness-based treatments and work with clients to improve their body image and break free from a disordered eating mindset by teaching Intuitive Eating techniques. I work with many moms with navigating the various dynamics of parenthood including helping them to develop healthy relationships with food and body positivity for themselves and to set sound examples for their children.
I am certified in Family-Based Treatment fo children and adolescents with eating disorders. I also employ CBT-E (cognitive behavioral therapy) for older adolescents and adults with eating disorders or disordered eating. I also offer body-positive coaching for teens and adults, as well as body-positive parenting coaching (through The Full Bloom Project).
I utilize a collaborative relationship with my clients to examine and change the factors that contribute to their disordered relationship with food an their bodies.
