Individuals battling eating disorders or disordered eating often end up feeling out of control in relation to food, body, and weight. It can be a very scary place – both for the individual affected by an eating disorder/disordered eating, and for the individual’s loved ones. Having worked for one of BC’s Provincial Specialized Eating Disorder Programs for over three years, and having worked in the eating disorder field for several more years, much of my education and training has been dedicated to the treatment of eating disorders. In a safe and supportive environment, I invite clients to explore the role the eating disorder plays in their lives and how it is maintained. In a compassionate and collaborative manner, I work with clients to shift ways of thinking, reacting, and being from food/body/weight to healthier alternatives. Using somatic approaches, I invite clients to being to really experience what it is like to be in their body and to explore new ways of embracing all aspects of self.

I also provide practical support for eating disorders, offering in-session or in-restaurant meal or snack support, post-meal interventions, and counselling for family/friends/partners in relation to how to best support their loved one who is battling an eating disorder.
