My Approach to Helping
My passion is to provide an empathetic and nonjudgmental space for clients struggling with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, anxiety, body dysmorphia, body image issues, shame, depression, and recovering from past traumas. My approach to healing is through developing a trusting therapeutic alliance. Looking at the social, cultural, familial, learning, and peer influences, as well as the genetic factors, personality traits, and biological factors out of our control is important to understand what brought you here today. Our experiences, both good and bad, shape who we are.
Through my own recovery journey and education, I have had the opportunity to work in both inpatient psychiatric hospitals and partial hospitalization, group therapy, and individual therapy for Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, PTSD, and body image disturbances.
