Counseling for Eating Disorders

Eating disorders tend to take over your entire life– likely to a large degree if you’ve found yourself on my website. Most people with eating disorders have been very successful at reaching their goals– which can leave you wondering why you can’t let go of this obsession.

Why can’t I just stop?

It can be incredibly painful to walk this journey, especially when friends and family do not understand how to help and support you.

I want you to find joy in your life. You can find freedom from the scale, appearance obsession, body checking, and compulsively exercising. I work best with people who are motivated and ready to dig in.

When you are ready, call me for a free 10 minute consultation.
