Great to meet you!

Do you struggle with overeating? Have you tried everything you can think of to manage emotional eating, compulsive eating, or binge eating, only to end up frustrated, demoralized, and ashamed? Compulsive and emotional eating can be difficult to manage . . . but with the right tools, it is NOT impossible! It is possible to befriend ourselves and our difficult patterns, and in doing so, learn more effective ways to relate to ourselves and manage our eating.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I find that using compassion-based approaches based in curiosity and self-respect allow clients to begin to empower themselves. My approach to working with any challenges is compassionate, respectful, warm, and curious, while being evidence-based – which means I will bring the best of current research and utilize methods that have been shown to be effective. I have completed training in mindfulness-informed approaches such as MBSR, MBCT, and Mindful Self-Compassion.

What you can expect from our first session

You can expect to be fully met in our session, with warmth, curiosity, acceptance, and the belief that you CAN overcome your struggles and issues. My clients walk away with more self-acceptance and a toolbox of strategies for managing the difficult times in life.
