We stop waiting to become, as soon as we realize, that we already are.
Sonya Renee Taylor
Often, eating disorder shows up in one’s life as a little voice that tells you “you are a failure“, “you are not worthy “, “you are ugly”, “you are just not enough!” This voice invalidates your experience and feelings, berates your character and criticizes your appearance. ED becomes an internal bully, which only gets stronger as you listen to it and try to get to its unrealistic standard by engaging in destructive behaviors.
Eating disorder robs you of your power to be yourself. Most likely, you were listening to this voice, ever since you were little. You might have forgotten what it is like to be unburdened, free and at peace.
To reclaim your voice, forge a new narrative, and break free from the grips of eating disorder behaviors, therapy stands as an invaluable first step.
How can I assist you on this journey?
Tailored to your unique needs, I offer a range of evidence-based and effective approaches.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is excellent for learning how to regulate emotions, tolerate extreme distress, build effective communication with others and be mindful.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is great to understand the connection between thoughts, emotions and actions. As as well to learn how by modifying thinking, emotions and actions change too!
- Psychodynamic therapy helps you to start seeing patterns in your life
- Internal Family Systems is instrumental in healing past traumas.
Above all, I provide a sanctuary of safety and unwavering support. I walk alongside you on the path toward a life free from the clutches of an eating disorder.
Operating from a feminist and social justice lens, I strive to validate and empower you as your own advocate. Embracing the Health at Every Size philosophy, I welcome individuals of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, body sizes, and sexual orientations. Recognizing that the daily weight of social oppression often plays a significant role in the development of eating disorders among marginalized communities, we address these systemic challenges as a crucial step towards healing.
