Do you feel alone and unable to cope? Are you having difficulty managing your relationship with eating and your body? Perhaps the barriers in your life feel insurmountable and it's hard to see a way out. Although I have not been exactly where you are, I too have suffered and can relate to the process of healing. Life is complex and often we need someone outside of our circle of friends and family with who to find support, question, and learn.

My approach to helping is collaborative, meaning your voice, needs and desires are an important part of the therapeutic relationship. I believe everyone has their own path toward healing and therapy is only one part of that process.

My philosophical orientation is individually tailored and I am likely to encourage a development of your strengths and connection with your body through mindfulness. Our body is an often forgotten component to our psychological well-being. It is a place of action and holds information about our emotional state and past/present experiences. We all have innate instincts to love and care for our whole self, both mind and body. At times we lose sight of this through life challenges, internalized cultural messages and traumatic experiences.

More Info About My Practice

If you are interested in starting therapy with me, I offer a free 30-minute in person consultation to discuss whether we might work well together and answer any questions you might have.

My fee is maintained on my practice website. In keeping with my desire to make therapy accessible for those who are unable to afford it, I offer a portion of my scheduled sessions at a sliding scale rate and they are available based on financial need and individual circumstance. Please contact me if you would like to know more.

I am currently in-network with First Choice and Regence and am an out-of-network for many other health insurance companies. I would be happy to provide you with documentation to give to your insurance company to seek reimbursement.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With


Sometimes it can be hard to move past difficult life circumstances. I have experience working with early relational trauma that manifests in adults in various ways, such as in anxiety, depression and difficulty relating to others.
My approach to trauma is grounded in and directed by a thorough understanding of the neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma. It is 'whole person' centered and takes into account knowledge about trauma and its impact.


Struggling to accept body size, grappling with our relationship with food, and feeling that we don't measure up is an all-too-common experience for many people. I utilize a Health at Every Size (HAES) approach to support people in developing a healthy relationship with their body by addressing body shame, weight cycling and disordered eating. HAES is emerging as standard practice in the eating disorders field with many organizations supporting this approach, including the International Association for Eating Disorder Professionals and National Eating Disorder Association.


I have extensive experience in working with the unique needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer and Transgendered individuals. I offer a safe place to explore this.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

It's important that you find a therapist with whom you can connect and feel comfortable. While you might be intrigued by education and specialization, most people find it's paramount to find a therapist who is non-judgmental, where they feel a genuine connection, and can feel safe revealing their struggles. Additionally, a therapist should be willing to examine their biases and accept feedback about the therapeutic relationship.
