Eating Disorder & Disordered Eating Recovery

Eating disorder and disordered eating psychotherapy focuses on manageable and sustainable change. I'll walk with you on this journey as we make sense of your experience, explore difficult emotions and the meanings behind them, implement coping and emotion regulation skills, and engage in self-compassion, validation, and mindfulness practices. 

At Moving Mountains, we believe in a non-diet, inclusive approach as well as the importance of aligning with your values. This allows you to live your most authentic life, gain agency over your body and find freedom from your eating disorder or disordered eating. 

Coming to therapy, accepting support, and committing to wanting change for yourself is not an easy or small step. I understand the complexities of these issues and how unique each client's experience will be, and will focus on helping you learn to respond to life's challenges effectively and to foster compassion, appreciation, and confidence in yourself. 

Other Areas of Focus

  • Perfectionism

  • Depression

I recognize that many mental health issues are overlapping and encourage booking a free consultation call first to ensure we're a good fit to work together!

Therapy can feel exhausting- we're uprooting thoughts and emotions that we might have done a good job keeping at an arm's length. I'm here to walk you through this process; you're not alone. 

My Approach

My approach to therapy is warm and collaborative, with an emphasis on person-centred care. I want to empower you to identify and advocate for the support that you need. By working from a compassionate and non-judgmental lens, we will deepen your relationship with yourself as well as with others. I emphasize self-compassion, mindfulness, and acceptance-based therapies like acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT). I also incorporate cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to help identify and navigate harmful cycles perpetuated by thoughts, emotions, and/or behaviours. Internal family systems (IFS), emotion-focused therapy (EFT) and family-based therapy (FBT) are other modalities that I use, depending on the unique client situation. I like to work from a holistic perspective, pulling from different therapeutic techniques and communicating with other healthcare providers as needed. My goal is to collaborate with clients, as I believe the most effective therapeutic relationships are rooted in trust, open communication, and empathy.
