 Treatment Philosophy
 I have a body positive, anti-diet approach to healing problems with   food  and body image. Sometimes eating disorders   are about food and weight, but they're more often about deeper pain   that has been too difficult to feel or heal.  By integrating medical knowledge with the healing arts, it is possible to uncover reasons for sabotage and   get on the way to a happier, more fulfilling life, free from obsessions   and self-frustration.  Whether you have mild food anxieties, dislike your   body, or are suffering with an eating disorder, there is hope!
