Recovery is Possible.
I am not currently accepting new clients-Please check back this fall!
I see clients virtually in AZ, CO, MN, and NE.
Recovery from an eating disorder, body image concerns, compulsive exercise, anxiety, or depression is possible. Although the process of recovery is challenging, early intervention and treatment provide a context and framework for individuals to fully recover. There is not a simple solution or path to resolving these very painful, disruptive, confusing, and isolating disorders. You don’t have to continue to struggle alone. I understand the difficulty of recovery, the impact these struggles have on family and friends, and the ambivalence that often accompanies the recovery journey.

I believe that a compassionate approach to the self, experiencing rather than avoiding emotions, being present, directly facing painful and deeply held stories and experiences, and taking action toward what actually matters to you are essential aspects of healing and seeing life clearly. Amid the struggles, tragedies, and difficulties that confront us each individual has the capacity to live a vital and meaningful life deeply connected to others and what matters to you. This doesn’t mean immunity from difficult and painful emotions or experiences, but that you will be able to experience and respond to these events with adaptability, flexibility, and resiliency.

I provide mindfulness skills coaching related to eating recovery. Mindfulness based interventions can be used to augment your current treatment, or as a stand alone support to enhance self-compassion, interoception, emotion regulation, and eating awareness. I am currently completing a graduate certificate in Applied Mindfulness.
I specialize in the treatment of Eating Disorders, Body Image Dissatisfaction, Addictive Exercise and related mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. I believe that sustainable recovery is possible and will work with you toward an individualized approach to treatment based on your unique context, goals, and history.
