My Philosophy of Care

Jessica Elwart Therapy offers support in assisting others to understand their body connection. The practice is built on a fat liberating, non-diet ideology using honest communication, relational straight-forward feedback, and humor. Our approach is based in creativity and play aiming at reconnecting you with your instrument in a more authentic existence.

Perhaps you have just had a baby or you’re experiencing menopause. Maybe you had a traumatic accident and are unable to use your body the way you once did. Maybe your body is sending you clues of an experience in your past that your mind no longer remembers. Maybe you are a person experiencing the changes of transitioning and need support around accepting your body. I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist with experience in working with eating disorders. I have a special concentration in working with clients that have Binge Eating Disorder, in addition to Anorexia and Bulimia. I am anti-diet, anti-fitness industry, anti-BMI and consider food scarcity and economic status to be major factors in most experiences with eating disorders. I am trauma-informed and have a passion for studying the racial foundation of fat-phobia. Whatever you’re going through with your body, we can be curious about it together.

Together we can explore your relationship with your body in the hopes of creating a better connection.

About Me & My Practice

My name is Jess and I’m a therapist offering my services to help others understand their connection with their body. My private practice is built on the foundations of honest communication, straight-forward feedback, humor and other relational approaches. My approach is based in creativity and play aimed at reconnecting you with your instrument.

I strive to keep the therapeutic space affirming and aligned to all sexual orientation and gender presentations and while our lived experiences may not be the same, it is my goal to stay connected to your truth through this supportive space.
