It can be overwhelming to reach out for help and to find a provider that feels like a “good fit.” I'm really glad you're here and appreciate the effort it has taken! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with specialties in Intuitive Eating and Sport Social Work I am passionate about helping people thrive by developing healthier relationships with their mind, body, and food. My approach to therapy is holistic, strengths-based, client-focused, and culturally responsive.
Clients I work with are generally experiencing stress, anxiety, body image issues, disordered eating (yo yo dieting) or burnout related to their career, graduate school, sport, relationships or life transitions. I've had success working with a wide range of clients and specialize in working with active adults, current or former athletes, ranging from weekend warriors to elite athletes. Collaboratively we identify strengths, barriers and goals. Through our work together clients gain new ways of coping and learn new tools to help them reach their goals. It brings me pure energy and joy to work with my clients and help them flourish from wherever they are starting!
My services aren't appropriate for people struggling with active eating disorders (i.e. those who are engaging in dangerous behaviors such as purging, or those who are engaging in food restriction or bingeing once a week or more). If you have an eating disorder, please see the National Eating Disorders Association for referrals instead.
