Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW
I have worked in eating disorders for over 5 years, with experience working specifically in an eating disorders program, supporting children, adolescents, and adults who have been affected by disordered eating. Your eating disorder is here for a reason. It's up to us to figure out what that is, and how to meet your needs in a way that allows you to nourish your body, and cope with emotions and stressors that have been too difficult to manage. Having an eating disorder can be such an isolating and exhausting thing to experience. That voice inside your head that's trying to control your relationship with food, movement, and your body gets louder and louder each day, and the emotional distress is just so strong. My work in supporting those with eating disorders focuses first and foremost, on normalizing your relationship with food, and eliminating any associated behaviours (purging, over exercising, weighing, bingeing, etc). My goal is ensuring that your body gets the nourishment it needs, so that we can do the work of talking back to that eating disorder voice, get you to a place where you can have foods you enjoy free of anxiety and guilt, and create a safe and accepting relationship with your body.

Eating disorders are complex mental health conditions that involve abnormal and disturbed eating behaviors. Common types of eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder. These disorders can cause serious physical and psychological consequences, including malnutrition, organ damage, and an increased risk of depression and anxiety. Eating disorders often stem from a combination of biological, psychological, and environmental factors and can be influenced by cultural and societal pressures. Treatment for eating disorders usually involves a combination of psychotherapy and medical intervention. Psychotherapy can help individuals understand and manage the underlying emotions and thoughts that contribute to their eating disorder and support them in developing healthy coping mechanisms. It is important to seek help from a licensed mental health professional if you or a loved one is struggling with an eating disorder, as early intervention is crucial for a successful recovery.

As someone who has suffered and successfully recovered from an eating disorder, I get it. I also know how complex, isolating, and serious these illnesses and their treatment can be. Reaching out for help is the hardest part, so be proud of yourself for making this first step and believing that it can get better. As your therapist, I will be sensitive and non-judgemental as we understand your thoughts and behaviours related to food, eating, weight, and shape so we can address behaviours first and create immediate positive change. Then, we will explore deeper feelings, beliefs, life-experiences, traumas, and relationships (to yourself and others) so that we can uncover what is happening at a core level in order to heal from disordered eating.
