About Katie

Hello and thank you for visiting my Practice website. 

My goal as a Therapist is to help my clients heal from wounds that they are carrying around, either from their lifetime or from their genetic lineage. I hope to help guide people toward freedom from those challenges so that we can all be more available for the areas of our lives that matter the most to us. For me, those areas are my work as a Therapist, volunteer and activism, playing with my dog Milo, being immersed in nature, caring for my body and connecting with friends and family.

The area I feel most passionate about is body liberation, and I love working with clients who are healing from disordered eating and body hatred. I see these afflictions as products of diet culture and fatphobia that exist on a societal level and damage us all. My approach is to help clients unlearn the toxic societal programming to enjoy foods and reconnect with their bodies. I do this work by helping people embrace the ideals and practices of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size®. My most influential teachers in this area of my education have been The Center for Body Trust®, Sonya Renee Taylor, Virgie Tovar, Jes Baker and Christy Harrison.
