Discover freedom from weight obsession and learn to truly love the body you're in


True recovery from disordered, body image disturbances and obsession with food and weight

Since 1985 I have had the honor of helping men and women of all ages on their recovery journey from body hatred and disordered eating. It has been my greatest joy to witness the profound transformation that occurs when an individual begins to change the way they think about their bodies and themselves. When you are no longer consumed by negative, obsessive thoughts about food, body image and weight, life begins to open up in a whole new way.  


As a Body Image Therapist, MA, CCHT, it is my goal to help my clients tap into their inner resources and relearn how to listen to the wisdom of their own bodies. I take a holistic approach to recovery, recognizing that there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution, and incorporate an array of therapeutic modalities. I create a safe environment for my clients to process past traumas and emotional experiences, and work closely with them as they acquire the coping and mindfulness skills necessary to heal and navigate life's daily challenges. 


To learn more or to schedule a free consultation, please contact me.



If you or someone you know is struggling with body image disturbances, disordered eating, or obsession with food and weight, I invite you to contact me to schedule a free consultation. 

I offer individual therapy sessions in person at my office in Oakland, California, as well as via phone or video call.


It's Not About Food | Support Group

Join me every Tuesday as I facilitate a support group for individuals struggling with food and weight obsession, disordered eating and body image disturbances.


Together we will explore the underlying social and emotional causes of body image disturbances, and how to heal and live in a new way - with self compassion and love. I will be your guide as you learn to tap into your inner resources and listen to the wisdom of your body.
