My Philosophy of Care

Psychotherapy is a unique experience, in that it is acceptable and encouraged that you share all of your thoughts and feelings, to include those that you might more typically withhold in other contexts. Ideally, you will have an experience of feeling affirmed/acknowledged, thoroughly listened to, and seen as a complex human being. That said, it can take a long time to feel free enough to share yourself in this vulnerable way, and it is important that we move at your own pace, plus respect that there are reasons why certain pieces of you are kept protected away. You lead the way; I will support you in your process. I do not impose an "agenda" on you, as that would be coming from me and not from you. I support your autonomy. Psychotherapy looks different for every dyad, and we will figure out the best course. This may change over time. You may be someone who is looking to free associate throughout the sessions, with me more so in the background, offering thoughts or questions every so often. You may be someone who is looking for a somewhat more active exchange, and/or to work through interpersonal issues right in the session with me. Some long-term "goals" might include: increased self-compassion, more sense of purpose, more flexibility and/or structure, more emotional range, more comfort in your body, more rewarding connections, more hope, more ability to tolerate ambiguity, more solidity in yourself in navigating the challenges of the world, etc.

About Me & My Practice

I have long felt invested in challenging our society's deeply entrenched prejudices when it comes to body size and the increased focus in recent years on tying body size in with "health". I see how often people who are otherwise progressive and interested in challenging various forms of discrimination and prejudice seem to have an entirely different stance when it comes to body size. I welcome individuals of all body sizes into my practice, and I will do my best to support you if you are a person in a larger body who is contending with body-based stigma that it coming from the outside and likely has been internalized into a lot of shame.

Accessibility Considerations

Unfortunately, there is a steep staircase up to my office, so this may make my office inaccessible to some. While I generally prefer in-person sessions, I am aware that this is not a possibility for all. Also, unfortunately, the bathrooms in the building are labeled "men" and "women" (single use), plus are quite small. You are welcome to use whichever bathroom you want, but I am aware that this is not ideal.
