My Philosophy of Care

Therapy is a vulnerable place so I want you to feel as safe as possible with me. My philosophy is based on gentleness and curiosity. I always ask for permission before providing feedback. I never assume anything about your health, your past or your goals for therapy. My hope is to guide you towards food freedom and body trust regardless of your weight or shape. I believe you can learn to accept yourself in a way that works for you. Body positivity is not the only answer. I will never push my client to a place where they are not ready to be.
Using the framework of HAES® allows me to open a conversation with you, break down some false narratives and myths about health and fat. I love providing psychoeducation which often leads to feeling more empowered. I see anti-fat as a serious social justice issue and diet culture as often responsible of dangerous eating disorders behaviors. My dream is for everyone (no matter the gender, the weight, the race etc) to live an authentic life liberated from society injunctions.

About Me & My Practice

Hi Im Anne (She/her) and Im fat therapist working in the world of eating disorders. I got a certificate in eating disorders from the Lewis & Clark university in Portland. But ultimately, you want someone who "gets it". My training gave me some legitimacy but my lived experience of an eating disorder is worth a thousand times that. I know the mental space that food and body image can take, leaving so little for the rest. I know about the self-hate, the unattainable expectations, the emotions numbing, the shame, the secrecy, the guilt of eating, the anxiety of eating out... I understand the suffering and I want you to know things can get better.
You can build a purposeful life which will impact everyone around you! I see it now with my own children: all food fits in our house, we don't comment on people's bodies, we move ours in a joyful way (and our pug will join us!)

Accessibility Considerations

My office is wheelchair accessible. Some chairs in my waiting room to have arm rests. I have a comfortable couch in my office with plenty of space to accommodate all body sizes. There is no "women's magazines" in the waiting room with diet or wellness tips.
