My Philosophy of Care

As a mental health clinician, I aim to provide comprehensive clinical care that considers the many parts of people’s lives and identities, including body size and interactions with the healthcare system. I provide unconditional support and acceptance and prioritize informed consent and self-determination. From this foundation, I work with people to help them learn to relate and respond to their experiences in ways that move them toward what is important in their lives. I specialize in treating OCD, eating disorders (including ARFID), and anxiety. I use the Health At Every Size® (HAES) framework to inform my work and provide affirming care that takes into account the impacts of weight stigma and medical fatphobia. HAES helps me better understand my clients’ experiences, and I aim to make all of my clients feel accepted and cared for.

About Me & My Practice

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and specialize in treating OCD, eating disorders, anxiety, and trauma. I work at a practice in New York City, where I receive ongoing training supervision from experts in these areas. In 2017, I began learning about HAES, and in 2019, I joined ASDAH and ran an after-school program to help young people learn about fatphobia and weight discrimination. I received my masters from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, where I advocated for additional weight-stigma education in the curriculum and completed my capstone research project on atypical anorexia and fatphobia in the eating disorder field. I completed my second-year clinical internship at an eating disorder facility, where I worked with HAES-aligned dietitians and therapists.
