I work with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults who are struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, ARFID, OSFED, exercise addiction, and/or obsession with clean eating. Whether this is your first or thirty-first venture into recovery and healing, I will meet you where you are and work with you to find the best path forward. You may be 100% invested, or at a place where you merely want to want to change, and both are okay. I incorporate a blend of talk-based and experiential methods in an approach that treats each person as a whole, complex being - not a list of symptoms or diagnoses.
Home- & Community-Based Sessions
These experiential sessions can be utilized as-needed, and may include grocery shopping, meal preparation, physical activity, clothes shopping, leisure/hobby exploration, ordering from or eating at a cafe or restaurant, and more. The home or community may also serve as the primary location for weekly sessions, and include the components of a standard office visit. This option may be especially beneficial for those who are uncomfortable with the formal face-to-face paradigm, or who wish to integrate the therapeutic process more fully into the rhythms and routines of daily life.
In addition to clients who see me regularly as their primary therapist, clients who have an existing treatment team can access these sessions on a short-term basis when a specific need arises. If you find that you need:
some hands-on therapy sessions in areas such as meal preparation or exercise, but not the full range of services included in an intensive outpatient program
additional outpatient services while transitioning from a treatment program,
I can provide tailored experiential sessions to compliment your current treatment and support your needs and goals.
“Somehow we’ve come to equate success with not needing anyone. Many of us are willing to extend a helping hand, but we’re very reluctant to reach out for help when we need it ourselves. It’s as if we’ve divided the world into 'those who offer help' and 'those who need help.'
The truth is that we are both.”
