About

People who enter my office are often perfectionists struggling to let go of control in some capacity, or are people struggling to feel in control of their emotions and subsequent behaviors. Our work together will lead to self-compassion and a greater sense of authenticity. It is important that the people I work with also feel a sense of mastery around their ability to cope with their emotions without using food and compulsory behaviors.

What sets me apart

My experience began working at a residential eating disorder treatment center in the Seattle area. I feel confident in my ability to help clients determine the appropriate level of care given their needs at the moment. My practice is size inclusive, and I take a weight neutral approach with clients. I practice from an intersectional feminist lens. I am well connected in the Seattle eating disorder professionals community. If a client if in need of a referral to an eating disorder dietitian or other professional, I will be able to facilitate that.

Treatment Models

My speciality is working with eating disorders, body image issues, and perfectionism. I've spent the last decade of my career helping people heal their relationship with food and their bodies. I utilize modalities and treatments such as Health at Every Size, intuitive eating, DBT, CBT, shame-resilience and compassion based therapies, emotion focused therapy, and person-centered therapy. Clients who work with me will feel safe, accepted, and understood. There will be moments of laughter amid the tears and pain, and there will be hard work. No matter what your journey of healing looks like, I will support you and help you to make changes that are necessary to live a wholehearted fulfilling life where self-compassion thrives.

Clients

After working in the field as a therapist for the past decade, I have found a passion in helping adults that are struggling with anorexia, bulimia, disordered eating, body image issues, perfectionism, self-harm, anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, and trauma. My office is a safe space for people belonging to marginalized groups, and I always want people that enter my office to feel validated in their experiences.
