My Philosophy of Care

To put it simply, I practice from a HAES perspective because I believe we’ve been doing healthcare all wrong and feel a strong responsibility to be part of making it right. Our cultural hyper-focus on individual behavior modification and equating weight with health has resulted in stigma and shame, not improved wellbeing. We need a full system reorientation to address the ingrained bias and misinformation that is currently at the helm of our health education, funding, and resource distribution/access. We’re not yet living in a world where all bodies are celebrated instead of scrutinized, where a peaceful relationship with food is prescribed over restrictive diets, and where the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry is dismantled. I opened a coaching practice to support individuals in the meantime; I help folks navigate the world we live in now while imagining a more liberated future. I specialize in helping clients find food freedom and body respect using the evidence-based framework of Intuitive Eating as well as a large dose of self compassion! My coaching style is non-judgemental, collaborative, and exploratory. I have supported hundreds of clients, from all walks of life, through the hard work of introspection and sustainable intention building to ultimately find trust and freedom from within themselves.

About Me & My Practice

I spent a good chunk of my life feeling stuck with health. I oscillated on a spectrum from hyper-disciplined and restrictive to unpredictable and disordered. I thought I needed diets and more rigidity to solve my binge eating and poor body image issues. None of my attempts provided relief — in fact, I felt increasingly hopeless and guilt-ridden with each plan or food rule I couldn’t sustain. I was riding an all or nothing pendulum that I did not know how to get off. I eventually discovered that a more peaceful stability was possible for me through the transformative tools of Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size®, and generally questioning the status quo of what I had been taught about health. After a few years of practice, I found a sustainable way of eating and am no longer completely preoccupied with negative thoughts about my body. This freedom motivated me to get certified as a coach and Intuitive Eating Counselor so I could help clients get unstuck too. I have been lucky to coach hundreds of clients and therefore glean wisdom from folks of many identities and body sizes. I am also an Eating Disorder Recovery Specialist and have a good understanding of the barriers and challenges those disorders can present. My practice centers on empowering clients to build small, sustainable intentions rooted in self care and alignment with their values.
