Hello! I am so glad you have found us. I know the pain of struggling with an eating disorder and body image issues. I know the agony of the constant diet cycle and body hatred. We can help you navigate your recovery journey.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor (Licensed in Texas, North Carolina, and Louisiana), Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, and Co-owner and lead therapist here at ETXEDS. I love to work with individuals, couples, and families to help bring healing on this tough road. I am also EMDR trained and use this amazing therapy modality to help people heal from trauma, including the trauma of body image struggles.
You will know from the second I meet you that I believe in your ability to recover. I try to keep therapy, less therapy-ish. I want you to feel as comfortable as humanly possible while we begin your recovery journey. I use a lot of exercises, metaphors, and stories to keep things fun and relatable. I work with clients of all ages, sexual orientations, races, and genders. I work hard to create a welcoming space where you can be you.
I am also a mother of four who loves the outdoors and longs to be in a hammock by a mountain lake with a book in my hand. I also tend to cuss just a little if I drink a few too many cups of coffee. Also, I love coffee. I am passionate about body acceptance and creating a world for my kids where all bodies are good and diets are no longer a thing.
If you would like to know more about my approach and what it will be like to work with me visit my personal website and blog here.
