I started my practice with the goal of creating a safe and affirming environment for transgender, non-binary, and queer individuals struggling with eating disorders, disordered eating, and negative body image.
Society makes a lot of assumptions about people’s genders based on appearance. We are taught that curves are not masculine and that one must be dainty to be feminine. Our society alienates individuals who do not match the narrow binary definitions of those bodies that are deemed acceptable.
Disordered eating behaviors may develop in an attempt to change one’s body shape/ size to meet society’s expectations. I welcome discussions about how body concerns and relationship with food may relate to gender but, I also know that these concerns may have nothing to do with being transgender or non-binary.
If you are struggling with negative body image, disordered eating, or an eating disorder I would love to work with you to heal your relationship with food and your body.
