My Philosophy of Care

I approach my work with each and every client like they matter and belong because they do. My clients truly know that I care for them and am in their corner. I think every person deserves to have someone that can listen and hold space for them and so many people leave appointments with providers feeling dismissed and unheard. I also show up as a human with my lived experience in each and every session that wants to see the humanity and lived experience of my clients. My approach to health is that it is complicated and dare I say sometimes a never ending finish line. On one hand it is important to so many of us and on the other hand it is frustrating, complex, unattainable, and illusive. I have personally battled chronic health conditions my entire adult life and I grow tired of the simple solutions and blame being placed on the shoulders of those that struggle. Being a Health at Every Size provider means that I will work with each of my clients to figure out what their definition of health is and if that is something they desire to even pursue and if so what that pursuit will look like. As a disabled person I know the harm done in the pursuit of health and I am passionate to not further this harm with my clients. Whether our work is accepting what is or making feasible changes we do this in collaboration because I will never be the expert of another person the way so many therapists and doctors have pretended to be the expert of me.

About Me & My Practice

I love working with people that do not fit “the boxes” whether that is because of their health status, gender identity, sexual identity, relationship status. I work deep in the woods of East Texas and I am passionate to serve populations that are vastly underserved in this area. I am passionate about working with people healing from trauma (religious or otherwise), sex struggles, and eating disorders. I think this is where my love for working with people in marginalized bodies came from. I love helping people root back in the trust of their own knowing and intuition. So much of existing in this world robs us of this trust whether it is due to trauma, eating disorders, or other struggles. People in marginalized bodies often have their experiences dismissed, denied, or ignored and I seek to heal this because we can not heal by doing more of what has harmed us. Lastly, I am a work in constant progress. I have spent my lifetime digging through the roots of internalized ableism and other struggles. This was hard and challenging work and I am far from done. I invite my clients to be in this process with me. I am believer in being in my own personal therapy and exposing myself to constant knowledge outside my own self as well as consistent clinical supervision. I want you to know that I won’t ever invite you to work that I wouldn’t do myself. In my free time I love to read, hang out with friends, Zillow houses in any place but Texas and spend time with my family.

Accessibility Considerations

We work to create an environment with flexible seating and many options. We do not do medical exams or weigh ins. There is no discussion of BMI or weight loss. We have gender affirming practices including our integrated EHR which will use your name even if legal documentation uses your dead name- your appointment reminders and things that you see will have your name. These will be asked about and pronouns are asked about before your first visit. Our office is wheel chair accessible and provides counseling rooms that can accommodate wheelchairs and other needed equipment.
