My Philosophy of Care

My work combines Internal Family Systems (IFS) Parts Work, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and EMDR to support people in embodying their full selves and orienting towards growth. I also use a body liberation and intersectional feminist framework to encourage self-compassion, self-respect, and self-care as radical acts of rebellion in a racist, fatphobic, ableist, misogynistic society. This includes acknowledging and breaking down internalized stigma that keeps people stuck and believing that they are the problem. My ultimate goal is to help my clients learn to honor, support, and heal each and every part of themselves. This includes helping people to expect to be treated equitably and with respect within their relationships, in their jobs, in the medical world, and beyond. It also includes shifting the focus on "fixing" our bodies to treating the body as deserving of movement, food, rest, and engagement that feels attuned and nourishing.

About Me & My Practice

Since 2008, I have had the privilege of supporting my clients as they experience life's challenges, joys, adventures, and opportunities for growth. My passion is helping people recover when something has interrupted or limited their growth - that could be trauma, grief, addiction, shame, relationship loss, or any number of events. For people in fat bodies (or any marginalized body), the trauma of existing in a society that devalues their lives and experience is held and honored. Having lived in a fat body for most of my life, I understand and have lived experience with this trauma. Since I discovered the HAES and body liberation frameworks about 6 years ago, I have considered myself in recovery from diet culture and constantly work to heal my own relationship to food, body, and movement. This informs every aspect of my work as a therapist, and I love helping people reconnect to themselves from a radically loving, respectful place while also acknowledging how anti-fat bias impacts the daily experience of living in our bodies. Outside of the therapy room, I am a busy dog mom with a dedicated yoga practice, and am actively involved in music and community theatre. I also love connecting with my local fat community where we hike, dance, play, and explore the world together. As such, I am fully committed to helping people find their authentic versions of movement, play, and community as vital aspects of integrated health.

Accessibility Considerations

I am the only provider in my practice, and my therapy sessions are via a secure telehealth platform. This reduces accessibility issues due to not having to navigate a physical space. However, for those folks who have difficulties using the platform, I provide technical support navigating it and/or do phone sessions.
