My Approach to Helping
I believe we are all able, and perhaps even meant, to be free from suffering and fear and compulsion. I believe that freedom comes not from always trying to "fix" ourselves but in disconnecting from perfectionist, harmful and old ways of regarding ourselves. I believe no lasting change in attitude or sanity or behavior comes from a place of self-hate or unrealistic expectations. It is only as we learn to love and accept ourselves in each moment that we are able to gently manifest shifts that free us from pain for good.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I struggled a great deal with eating and body disorders for most of my life. These compulsions and the thinking that goes with them are so complicated, and can feel completely hopeless and impossible to find freedom. I love knowing what it is really like for my clients that suffer from obsession, anxiety, low self-worth, running thoughts, and uncontrollable shifts in mood. I think it helps the therapeutic relationship and my clients report that it helps them to feel understood and fundamentally accepted.
