I believe strongly in the creation of a safe, compassionate therapeutic space to help clients access emotions and safely examine parts of self that are causing pain, challenges, and difficulty. Each of us is made up of many different parts, all of which exist for a reason. By bringing awareness and understanding to wounded and struggling parts of self, we can learn what they need to heal. My approach is client centred, trauma informed, and strengths based. My core values are being an ally and working from an anti-oppressive framework.
I specialize in working with clients struggling with disordered eating, eating disorders (including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, orthorexia, OSFED, ARFID) as well as body image and self-esteem concerns. Additionally, I have expertise in working with clients experiencing interpersonal and relational challenges, trauma, depression, anxiety, and those navigating life changes.
Therapy will focus on exploring emotions, accessing inner resources, creating strategies, and developing tools in support of healing and growth. Any topic can be discussed in therapy, no matter the size. I view respect, curiosity, and compassion as the pillars to reconnecting with one’s sense of self through exploration of emotional, psychological, relational, and physiological distress.
If you are interested in learning more about me, I welcome you to book a free consult. In our consult we can talk a little about what brings you to therapy, answer any questions you may have, discuss logistics/administrative details, and see if we are a good fit to work together. I am currently accepting new clients.
