here's what might matter to you:
i am a certified eating disorder specialist (ceds) and iaedp™ approved supervisor. i have the unique experience of working in all levels of care and with all ages; residential, inpatient, partial, and outpatient settings alike, with children, teenagers, and adults. i've been trained by some of the best of the best in the field. my dissertation was on bulimia and emotional intelligence. i've sat with clients for over 15,000 hours of therapy time. i've been interviewed by various media outlets on the topic of eating disorders, body image and women's health including glamour magazine, the huffington post, good morning america, and vogue magazine (press page).
here's what matters to me:
i've seen this disorder ravish through families. destroy lives. fracture communities. i've seen it act as a vehicle for profound pain. i've witnessed it as truth teller for secrets that feel too dark to be captured with words. eating disorders are complex. they are serious. they are deadly. let's be honest, you're the expert on your eating disorder. i'm just a psychologist with a whole lot of experience who wants to help you heal so that you don't feel so tortured. so that you can feel your pain without needing food, or the absence of it, to manage it. so that you can use your voice not your body. so that you can learn to love yourself from the inside out.
