My Ideal Client

I may be a good fit for you if: You consider yourself an "over-thinker," and want to learn how to get out of your head a bit. You've ever been called "too sensitive." You're struggling with your relationship to food, movement, and/or your body. You're feeling disconnected or unsatisfied in your relationships. You're interested in mindfulness and embodiment.

My Background and Approach

My counseling philosophy is rooted in the idea that all humans have the ability to grow and heal. No human being is broken, and most mental health struggles stem, in part, from difficult external circumstances, like a traumatic past or a flawed culture. Through active listening, reflection, and gentle challenging, I help you become better acquainted with yourself, so that you can live in closer alignment with your values. I specialize in working with eating disorders and body image distress, but I also work with anxiety, depression and PTSD. I integrate a variety of therapeutic modalities depending on the client, though I most often use Humanistic and Person-Centered Therapies, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Feminist Therapy, Somatic Therapy and mindfulness practices. In working with eating disorders, my perspective is informed by the “Health at Every Size” and “Intuitive Eating” movements. Above all else, I strive to show up authentically and humanly.

Why I Became a Therapist

After growing up in Portland, I moved to Minnesota to complete my Bachelor of Arts in French and Francophone Studies at Carleton College. A few years later, I found myself sitting across from my first therapist; processing a recent cross-country move, a decade-long eating disorder, and an unfulfilling career in marketing. Those quiet afternoons on my therapist's couch helped me reconnect with my body, improved my relationships, and uncovered my passion for emotional exploration. It's truly an honor to walk alongside my clients in the same way that my first therapist held space, and walked alongside me.
