Everybody Deserves to Feel At Peace in Their Body

I help individuals who struggle with disordered eating, invisible disabilities, trauma, and body image concerns make peace with food and their bodies. As someone living with an invisible disability, and who has fought to free myself from the grips of an eating disorder, I understand the challenges in finding affirming and inclusive support and the transformative effects of collaborative therapy. Many of my clients describe me as the “anti-therapist,” which is a description I wear with pride. I bring enthusiasm, improvisation, imagination & creativity into each session. My ability to think outside the box and ask questions that others may not enables me to develop creative solutions with clients to help untangle what many would consider to be complicated problems. I believe in (and embrace) experimentation: the freedom to test things out and see how they fit, to explore the various facets of yourself, and to allow for complexities, contradictions, and messiness. I provide psychotherapy, eating disorder recovery coaching and mind-body movement services. My specialty areas include disordered eating, invisible illnesses & disabilities, anxiety, relationships, trauma, perfectionism, and shame. I have extensive experience working in the field of eating disorders and supporting clients who are living with a complicated relationship with food and/or their bodies. Combining clinical and lived experience with a love of social justice, my passion to help others renegotiate their relationship to these problems is integrated into each part of my work.

Testimonials

“Tessa is helping me deconstruct 19 yrs worth of disordered eating mess. I’ve come farther in the two & a half weeks of working with her than with anything else I’ve tried. She asks the most pertinent questions & challenges me in ways I didn’t realize I needed.”

Existing Client

“Tessa is super understanding & patient with exactly where I am at. I feel supported, challenged, motivated, & understood for the very first time in this very long and rigorously isolating disorder.”

Existing Client

“I've never had a therapist help me as much as Tessa has. She provides a unique point of view & knows how to fight back against the negative narratives within my brain that have held me hostage for 20+ years. I feel myself changing & growing after each session.”
