Online Therapy for Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder + Anxiety

Our Approach

Are you sick and tired of struggling alone? Feel like there is no way out of your eating disorder or obsessive compulsive disorder? Do you feel trapped in and scared of your own mind? Both of these mental health conditions include high amounts of anxiety that tend to impact daily functioning. As an anti-oppression therapists, we tailor our approach to fit your individual needs, explore systemic issues contributing to your distress and believe our relationship is one of the most important components to your healing. We have years of professional experience in a variety of settings including outpatient, inpatient, residential treatment centers, schools and private practice. We have been through recovery from eating disorders and body image ourselves, which helps our clients feel like they can relate. We feel this is crucial to acknowledge in order to break down the inherent power dynamic in therapist-client relationships and help my clients feel a sense of safety and trust. We know first hand what it's like to struggle and it's our mission to help every client we serve find the same freedom we have.

About Eating Disorder & OCD Therapy

We are a  small group practice in California, providing virtual eating disorder, OCD and trauma services to adults, tweens, teens and kids throughout the state.

 

We specialize in treating Eating Disorders, Body Image, Anxiety, Trauma and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. We often work with relational concerns, body dysmorphic disorder and mood disorders as well. We have extensive professional training as well as lived experience. We know what it's like to be scared of recovery, yet desperately needing relief. We take a client centered approach to help you reach your goals in healing. Our own experiences sparked our passion in helping others find this same healing. Our clients take comfort knowing they can come to us, judgement free, and talk with a therapist who has been there.

Social justice is an integral part of our work and we operate from a Health at Every Size lens. We identify as anti-oppression and intersectional therapists, which means we strive to affirm and warmly welcome your intersecting identities, which include sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, race, ability, and class. Being an anti-oppression therapist also means we do everything we can to protect you from harmful carceral systems of oppression. Our advocacy does not end in the therapy room.
