Let's Dig
On In

I believe therapy can be a space of collective and internal healing. Within my practice, I offer both groups and 1:1 sessions. 

 

Quite often we humans find ways to survive in unsafe places (some examples: our family of origin, diet and wellness culture, environments of abuse or trauma). It makes so much sense why you needed to keep yourself safe via disordered patterns with food, movement, and your body. I deeply believe with more compassionate understanding you can start to identify where these safety patterns began and why. If we learned it, we can unlearn it and learn something new...

Body Liberation

The aim is freedom and ease and MUCH more brain space.

 

Together we can dig in and define the philosophy of YOUR body liberation.

 

Rooted first and foremost in lived experience, needs and boundaries, I will hold space while offering a gentle nudge away from placing the blame on you or your body and, instead, taking the systems (Diet culture! Patriarchy! Capitalism!) a bit more to task. 

Eating Disorder Recovery

I am deeply committed to helping you experience a eating disorder recovery journey that is grounded in body liberation, fat positivity, Health at Every Size®, and Intuitive Eating approaches.

 

I believe exploring relational and developmental trauma, marginalization, and systems of oppression are essential to recovery.

 

The echoes of your recovery will be far and wide. Healing your relationship with food and your body breaks inter-generational cycles and pushes back against outdated structures trying to keep us small.

Artists & Creatives 

Ah, creative brains and career paths! While I hold the belief that everyone can be creative, I know that you have devoted yourself and sacrificed so much to stay true to what brings you the most meaning in your art making.

Whether you need space to talk eating disorder recovery or body liberation as a performer or maker or you are thinking of shifting gears and taking a big leap, I'm always down to help.

ADHD Support

Newly diagnosed? Perhaps 30+ and just starting to understand the depth of how your ADHD has affected...well... EVERYTHING?

Are you wanting to better understand the intersection of eating disorders, body image and ADHD?

Wherever you are in your winding path, I'll be there to process and offer ideas and practical tools to try, try again, and well, keep trying (because...ADHD!)

Shooting Star

Social justice, cultural humility and anti-oppression work are core to my values as a therapist & community member.

I offer several sliding scale community peer support groups (which are different than group therapy) and are intended to create multiple access points for on-going peer support and to create new body liberation & fat positive communities.

​​

The goal is to build community and share lived experiences with fellow peers. As community group facilitator, I will guide conversation in a meaningful way and add supportive structure.

 

Community groups are open and drop-in in nature. If you are new to Take Space, the first step is to reach out for a consultation  There is no long-term commitment as we believe community building is on-going and can be helpful at different periods of our Body Liberation journey.

Community
Consultation

Are you looking to bring more body liberation or fat positivity into your work as a therapist or healer?

 

Are you a grad student feeling isolated within your cohort and want more support to learn about eating disorders, HAES®, Body Liberation, Drama Therapy or ADHD?

I am always happy to connect with folks looking to build community with another aligned provider! 

Body and size justice should be essential in our training. If you need more support, you are not alone, I'll help guide you to community, answer questions and dig into what you are most passionate about.

I offer sliding scale rates for marginalized folks with limited access for support and those still in school or training.
