My Approach to Helping
Do you have negative thoughts about yourself that you can’t shake? Are you doing things to try and feel better but realize everything you’re doing makes you feel worse? Spend a lot of time thinking critically about your body? My personal approach to therapy is supportive and also direct, down-to-earth. I'm passionate about working with individuals affected by eating disorders, supporting them into full recovery. I also work with trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I believe in Health at Every Size®, Intuitive Eatinganti-diet, and LGBTQ+ affirming.
As a person, I’m relaxed, informal, and warm (sometimes a bit of humor helps us open up into deeper issues). I'll also challenge you to go deeper. I want to dig into the topics bringing you in instead of staying on the surface. I use EMDR, DBT, and attachment-based approaches to help build skills to feel better in the moment and help it stay that way.
Often we come to therapy because we need a push to move forward, make a change, but change can only happen if you feel seen, challenged, and comfortable with the other person in the room. Give me a call or email and see if you feel like I’m someone you can talk to!
