Eating disturbances are themselves not an isolated problem but rather often a symptom of other challenges. These challenges impact children, adolescents and adults in similar but distinct ways that sometimes requires support outside of what a natural support system and/or a parent can provide. I offer compassionate and effective support and use a variety of strategies to tailor a treatement plan that is designed specifically for you, your child, and/or your family.

Eating disorders benefit from the same or similar approach used for all addictive behaviours. One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. The relationship to food can be quite complex involving societal or cultural pressures, self-image, past traumas, addictive non-nutritious junk food, media images, social media pressures, bullying. Shame and guilt need to be addressed along with peer pressures. The most common eating disorders are: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Orthorexia, Purging Disorder etc. The benefits of therapy are enhanced self-image, health and well-being.

Counting calories becomes a way of life. You start to judge yourself harder and more than anyone else does. People say just be happy with who you are. But how do you get there when you have put this label in your head? Do you deserve better? Yes you do. A friend once said to me, " when I give you a compliment it is like a slap in the face when you don't accept it!" Do we have the right to take that away from the other person. Maybe they see more in us then we see in ourselves. I know if you are here your ready to feel really good about yourself no matter where your at with your eating habits. I'm here when your ready.

Traditional eating disorder treatments place the problem within the person. Using a Feminist and Narrative approach, I believe in unpacking people's experiences and stories. When a full picture of the problem is created, we can then understand the conditions of how the eating disorder came to be. Through a non-judgemental and non-blaming approach, it is my job to create an environment where clients can make sense of their struggles. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.
