About This Group

This group is designed to help you find coping mechanisms for your emotional struggles that don't involve under eating, using compensatory behaviors, or overeating for comfort. As a therapist who specializes in eating disorders, I bring a non-judgmental frame to our process, and give everyone a chance to share and ask for advice. Group will meet weekly, and we will establish agreements as a group for what topics we want to discuss and how we want to showcase our respect for the other group members, which is a core value of my groups. The process of speaking about traditionally shameful behaviors with food can free you from your inner critic, as you will be accepted for exactly who you are and feel encouraged, seen, and heard. All genders, sizes, sexual orientations, and races/ethnicities are welcome here. When you sign up, I will schedule a quick phone call for no more than 15-minutes to introduce myself and hear more about your story to ensure we can create a safe space for you.

Starting just before the holiday season, where food struggles can be exacerbated by the types of food/events that tend to surround that time
