Online Therapy for Eating Disorders
and Body Image

Most of my clients experience some degree of distress and dissatisfaction with their relationship to food and body image, whether they have a formal eating disorder diagnosis (such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, or anorexia) or not, which is often connected to broader patterns of self-criticism and shame. 

Therapy may be for you if:

You find yourself frequently thinking about food, yet find mealtimes stressful or overwhelming

You judge yourself for how you look (and maybe even judge yourself for judging yourself!) but don’t know how to stop

Despite having meaningful relationships, it feels like your partner/family/friends don’t truly know you or always know how to support you

It feels like the life you want is on hold until your body looks different

Will I always hate my body?

Many of my clients express a deep longing to be known, but a simultaneous fear of being seen for who they are. Maybe you wonder how you got here: monitoring every bite of food that goes into your mouth or constantly checking certain parts of your body in the mirror.

It may be hard to remember a time when you didn’t feel worried about how you look or how others perceive you. It’s exhausting to stay mentally vigilant of your food intake, exercise, and body size, but it doesn’t feel like there’s any other way to be. 

Part of you may be ready to be free of these thoughts and worries, but another part of you is scared what might happen if things change.

Life doesn't have to be this hard.

The clients I work with tend to be really good at being who others want them to be, and may find it difficult to identify and meet their own needs. 

Maybe you find it easier to ride the razor’s edge of hunger until the point where you can’t stop eating, then it is to feed yourself regularly.  

You endlessly optimize your food intake, grocery list, and exercise routine, but still you don’t get meaningful relief from the drumbeat of anxiety in your head. 

You feel confused that you do all the things that are supposed to lead to happiness and success, yet inside your body it feels like things are on fire.

It’s time to come home to yourself

I help teens and adults uncomplicate their relationships to food and body image so you can stop obsessing and shift your focus to the things that matter to you most. 

Clients who work with me tend to feel more ‘at home’ in themselves and more connected in their relationships. I help clients feel like they are taking charge of their own lives and come into who they are.

As a body image and eating disorder therapist, I support my clinets in developing a sense of calm, confidence, and peace in their relationships to food, their bodies, and themselves.
