My Ideal Client

I specialize in providing therapeutic support & coaching to individuals, families & systems encountering eating disorders & related issues. I work with teens & adults across the gender spectrum. Whether you're ready to make change or perhaps just ready to start thinking about it, I provide a space for you to process, feel & navigate through it. My goal is to support you in getting where you want to go, be that toward recovery, harm reduction, stabilization, relief. Let's figure it out together.

My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy is client-centered, utilizing a blend of humanistic & systemic. Creativity is key; I provide therapy that is shaped to fit YOU - your preferences, your needs, your goals. I believe in doing thing differently. I think healing is far too complex & personal for there to be a standard mode or approach. I offer 3 modes of therapy: (1) In-Person (office) (2) Virtual (3) Outdoor/Exposure Therapy. Outdoor/exposure therapy consists of an in-person meeting that takes place at a nature or community-based location as determined in collaboration with you. - Need support grocery shopping? I'll grab the cart. - Better able to access & process emotions in nature? See you at Mt. Tabor. - Ready to challenge a fear food? I'm so in. - Want to explore mindful movement? Let's go. *I find a mix of these 3 modes can elevate the therapy process by providing a dynamic path for you to explore healing across a wide range of environments & real-life experiences.
