In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

I am a recovered clinician having recovered from my own eating disorder over ten years ago. This personal experience combined with my professional experience helps me connect with my clients because I know what it is like to be in the thick of the disorder and attached to the promises of the eating disorder, but I also know that freedom from this is absolutely possible because I have experienced it first hand as well as have seen my clients experiences of finding freedom from food, weight, shape, and size.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I take a non-hierarchal approach to therapy in that I believe therapy to be a partnership toward healing where you are the expert in your own life experience and walk beside you in the process offering my knowledge on how to bring about lasting change. I trust that at every moment you are doing the very best with what you have and with what you know, and I teach you how to trust this of yourself.

What’s the most profound, insightful, or interesting thing you’ve learned as a mental health professional?

I have learned time and time again that you cannot break yourself apart into any kind of wholeness. This is to say that self compassion is so crucial to this work because the relationship you have with yourself becomes the foundation for every other relationship and life experience that you will have.
