My Approach to Helping
I believe we are all able and meant to be free from suffering and fear and destructive behavior. I believe that freedom comes from releasing the need try to "fix" ourselves but instead letting go of perfectionistic, critical and old ways of regarding ourselves. Investigating and relinquishing the stories we have about ourselves makes for lasting change. It is only as we learn to love and accept and perhaps parent ourselves that we are able to gently create shifts that free us.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I struggled a great deal with eating disorders and body hatred for most of my life. These compulsions, the obsessions, and the culture's obsession with thinness and body shape create a complicated storm, and can feel completely hopeless. I love knowing what it is really like for my clients that suffer. I think it helps the therapeutic relationship and my clients report that it helps them to feel understood and fundamentally accepted.
