Description: I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor in Private Practice in Austin, TX ( I am a hugely privileged white, straight sized, upper middle class, well-educated, able-bodied, cisgendered, heterosexual woman who works hard to juggle expertise along with humility. I am active in self-exploration and continuing my personal growth journey. I’m constantly working at using my privilege in a way that makes me a more effective and safe ally for marginalized folx. HAES and Intuitive Eating Principles touch everything I do as a therapist, supervisor, writer, speaker, consultant… friend, wife, mom, daughter (we’ve had some spirited conversations and debates in my house!). I’m proud to say that, even if not always overtly, HAES is present throughout my work and my life. I actively work to challenge scientific and cultural assumptions about size and weight (I hold a Size Diversity Competency Training for Healing Professionals, an Ethics training, regularly — I pass out ASDAH cards each time I hold this training tee hee hee), I write regularly for Eating Disorder Hope, Austin Moms, and on my practice’s blog - with the goal of amplifying the voice of the HAES message, and have recently been honored to serve as the Education Chair of ASDAH. I am also the current education chair of the HAES-principled Central Texas Eating Disorder Specialists (CTEDS) - a non-profit organization located in Austin, Texas.
