A note about
our directory

The voices and experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Color, gender variant folks, fat folks, and/or people with disabilities have been absent and minimized in the eating disorder, healthcare, and wellness-related professions.

Therefore, we are working hard to draw an increasingly diverse group of people to be part of our Body Trust Provider Community.

To include providers who are often excluded or unable to participate in trainings such as ours, we offer equity-pricing and additionally have 10 low or no cost spots in every cohort.

Therapist, Approved Supervisor, Clinical Director

Special focus is disordered eating, including binge eating disorder, bulimia, anorexia, body dissatisfaction, chronic dieting, intuitive eating, and orthorexia. Approach is rooted in respect for clients’ instinctive ways of surviving, while fostering a spirit of gentle, curious experimentation to find new, more sustainable ways to move forward. If you’ve ever had your broken relationship with food/body dismissed, overlooked, minimized, or even encouraged, due to living in a larger body, there’s a special place in my heart and in my practice for you. I might be a good fit for you if you are looking for a therapist who is down-to-earth, trauma-informed, and likes to use humor in our conversations.

Location: Arlington, VA – I serve as the Clinical Director for Rock Recovery, a non-profit providing accessible disordered eating care. We offer individual and group therapy for VA, DC, and MD residents, as well as faith-based support groups nationwide. All our services are offered on a generous sliding scale, because we believe finances should never be a barrier to care.
