Are you or a loved one struggling with your relationship to food? I work with individuals in later stages of recovery to help redefine their relationship to food and their bodies. Eating disorders range from Anorexia and Bulimia to Binge Eating and Orthorexia, and are far more common than is widely recognized. Eating disorders are a daily struggle for 10 million females and 1 million males in the United States. Four out of ten individuals have either personally experienced an eating disorder or know someone who has.
In addition to these staggering numbers, there are even more people out there struggling with their relationship to food, in what I call "disordered eating." These individuals may not classify as having an eating disorder, but experience distress in response to their relationship to food and eating.
I can help provide support and guidance for you if you are recovering from an eating disorder or disordered eating, and provide you with resources, tools, insight, and structure to help you move through your disorder and into a more balanced, resourced place in their life. I am always available to collaborate with a treatment team or to help develop a support team. Sometimes we all need a little extra support!
My work blends somatic, or body-oriented, therapy with mindfulness, talk therapy, ACT, CBT, DBT, and heart-centered awareness practices.
If the level of care you are seeking is higher than I can provide, i.e. you are actively struggling with distressing behaviors and thoughts throughout your day, your usual day-to-day functioning is greatly impaired, and feel you are caught in a cycle that cannot be interrupted with weekly therapy, I also offer consultation to set you up with a support team. For a thorough assessment and placement strategy, I recommend 1-3 sessions, depending on your needs.
