My Philosophy of Care

I am a culturally humble clinician, practicing from an anti-oppressive and fat positive framework. I focus primarily on trauma, anxiety, depression, and eating disorders from an embracive perspective incorporating the mind and body together. As a former nurse, I also specialize in helping others in the healthcare field as they may struggle with moral injury, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, burnout, and other work-related stressors. I strive to help others overcome obstacles through mental health education, psychotherapy, community advocacy, and a supportive and inspirational environment. I use an integration of Polyvagal Theory, DBT, Psychodynamic Theory, and Sensorimotor interventions with her clients. I continue to pursue neuroscience and anti-racism activism and publication as well as seeking out novel approaches to mental healthcare and physical healthcare integration. Heath at Every Size is necessary to confront fatphobic practices and ensure clients are getting treatment they need to achieve their highest level of healing.

About Me & My Practice

I was a nurse for over 10 years and saw first-hand how people's emotional well-being was not cared for in healthcare. This was true of both the patients I saw as well as my healthcare coworkers. This led me to pursue a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling so that I could bridge the gap to full body well-being that the medical model appears to neglect. After working within general surgery, I saw fatphobia and discrimination happening in medicine daily. This encouraged me to look further in research about weight neutral practices and actual outcomes that do not conflate correlation with causation, as well as the racist roots of fatphobia. I give lectures to healthcare providers about changing to a weight neutral practice and education psychotherapists as well. Personally, I'm a dog lover, foodie, often get lost in reading fictional books, and love to travel, especially internationally. I have one daughter who is the light of my life and I spend as much of my free time as I can going on adventures around Madison with her.

Accessibility Considerations

My office is wheelchair accessible and is comfortable for folx in larger bodies. I do not use weights or BMI within my eating disorder practice. I am gender affirming and could have an interpretation for ASL or other languages if needed.
