About

*Currently accepting clients for my waitlist*

I'm so glad you are here!

My primary specialty is working with individuals (especially those who identify as LGBTQ) who are wanting to explore their relationship to food and their bodies. This can include eating disorders, disordered eating, compulsive exercise, and/or body image concerns. Many of my clients are unpacking developmental and complex trauma, and are curious about what loving themselves more could look like. Often, eating disorder behaviors serve as a survival strategy for navigating painful environments. With care and as a team, we will engage in healing work to honor your past self who was doing the best they could, shift your relationship to food and your body, and create a life worth living. I practice from a fat justice and anti-diet framework.   

I enjoy working with individuals and couples on a variety of other topics as well, including perfectionism, finding meaning, disability, spirituality and mindfulness exploration, and navigating anxiety. Previous to becoming a therapist, I worked as a peer mentor through the Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) and as a member of FEDUP, an international collective that focuses on eating disorders in the trans community. I am currently earning my Body Trust Certification. I am working toward my LPCC licensure and am under the supervision of Max Abeln, LMFT.

As a therapist, I practice deep care and honesty toward my clients. I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a place of attachment repair and healing. I am honored to work with and learn from those I sit with in sessions!

I identify as many things outside of my work: a Jew, white, trans, a partner, an eating disorder survivor, and an animal lover. I am committed to continued learning around my identities as they relate to others, and encourage you to bring your own multifaceted identities to our work together.
