My Philosophy of Care

As a feminist therapist who is fat-positive and disability-justice oriented, I work from a liberation perspective. I believe that all bodies are good bodies. All bodies deserve respect. Fat and disabled people have always existed and will always exist. Believing all of this, how could I not be a HAES provider? The people I support are constantly being told that their bodies are a problem. This is not OK! It is an honor to remind them of their worth and to collaborate on body liberation for us all.

About Me & My Practice

I’m an extrovert who loves most events where there’s food. I’m a night owl, and I wilt in the heat—which I define as anything above 70 degrees. I first learned about HAES around 2011, and I became a therapist in 2016. I help professional women who have chronic pain and/or chronic illnesses, many of whom have experienced some combination of being ignored, misdiagnosed, and gaslighted. They’re trying to be kind to themselves, to trust themselves, and to find ways to get the support that they need without having to prove that their pain is real or that they’re trying hard enough. Although it won’t be exactly like yours, this was my experience. In 2018, after 20 years of it, I finally learned that the doctors were wrong. I never had fibromyalgia; I was born with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (and then went on to develop POTS, MCAS, and gastroparesis). Those same doctors told me that losing weight would solve all my problems. Nope! Weight is not an indicator of health, and health is not an indicator of worth.

Accessibility Considerations

Because of my own accessibility needs, all therapy services are offered online. Sometimes accessibility needs clash, meaning that we won't be a good fit, but this never means that anyone's needs are too much. You are worthy of care always. If you need in-person, text-only, or phone-only services, I will do my best to help you find a therapist who can meet your needs.
