Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

I worked at a residential treatment center which specialized in eating disorders for 5 years. I believe that eating disorders are desperate attempts to cope with life and previous traumas. I help women specifically learn to build a healthy relationship with food, love their bodies, and learn how to use other coping skills that do not involve binging, purging, laxatives, and/or starvation. Through therapy, you'll heal past traumas and heal the relationship you have with your mind, body, and spirit.

We identify how it has come to be and then learn to identify triggers and trigger responses. Clients are trained in managing their awareness and urges in order to take full control of their health and wellness. We also work to create a plan for how to maintain mental wellness moving forward so that the eating disorder does not morph into another mental health issue.

I believe that eating disorders do not exist independently; I strongly believe that there are other issues such as depression and/or low self esteem, with the eating disorder being the only area where the individual feels a sense of control.
