Individual and group therapy
I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a safe, non-judgmental space where you can work towards growth and resiliency. My approach to therapy is humanistic, strengths based, and incorporates creative interventions from multiple disciplines. I work with people to become more proficient at identifying and utilizing their strengths, in order to work towards achieving their full potentials. I believe that by increasing our self-compassion and compassion towards others we can lead more fulfilling lives, as we navigate the complex challenges and pressures of society. I work from a weight-inclusive perspective and enjoy helping people in larger bodies heal from shame around our bodies and food, without dieting. I am also passionate about supporting people who are struggling with disordered eating in a world that fosters fat phobia and body shame. I also have experience working with cultural diversity and with folks who have grown up in the US and who's parents immigrated from another country.
