My Philosophy of Care

My primary goal in therapy is to create a safe space for clients to understand and accept themselves more fully and to feel understood and accepted by the important people in their lives. It is amazing what positive changes people can make when they feel safe and comfortable enough to explore themselves and their problems with another person. I use elements of psychodynamic, humanistic, and cognitive behavioral therapies and work from an intersectional feminist lens. Issues of culture, bias, and marginalization run throughout my therapeutic work. For me, practicing from a HAES perspective is important for the same reasons that recognizing homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, and ableism is important: addressing oppression is critical to healing. For fat people, weight stigma is often a central source of psychological pain and trauma, and any therapeutic treatment that neglects to address it will be fundamentally incomplete. For some patients, this can take the form of acknowledging and dismantling internalized fat-phobia or processing a painful experience with weight-based bullying (often from a partner or family member). For others, addressing weight stigma can simply mean having a therapist who treats their body size as a neutral fact instead of a problem needing to be solved.

About Me & My Practice

I’ve worked as a therapist since 2013 and have been a HAES-informed provider since 2019. I specialize in working with sexuality, gender, and sexual identity and am a kink-knowledgable, poly-competent, size-inclusive therapist. I also work with teens, young adults, and adults of all stripes struggling with depression, social and general anxiety, overwhelming emotions including anger and jealousy, and relationship and family problems. I have experience working with clients from a variety of races and ethnicities, nationalities, socioeconomic classes, religious backgrounds, sexualities, gender identities, and relationship structures. Working with different kinds of people is one of the most rewarding parts of my work. I earned a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Long Island University, and am a Licensed Psychologist in Nebraska, where my practice is located, and Iowa, where I meet with clients by Telehealth. I am also authorized by The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PsyPact) to meet with clients by Telehealth in 36 additional states.

Accessibility Considerations

My office is located on the first floor and is wheel-chair accessible. Wide seating (a love seat) with a 500 lb weight limit is available in the waiting room (as well as chairs with arm rests rated at 275 lbs), and patients sit on a couch in my office that is rated for 600 lbs. I am also available to meet by Telehealth through a HIPPA-compliant version of Zoom. I do not have interpretation services available. No information on clients’ weight or BMI is asked at any point in the intake process. However, one question on our intake form involves recent, significant weight gain or loss, as this is a symptom of some mental illnesses.
