I am a licensed professional counselor practicing in Tucson, Arizona. I've been in the mental health and self-acceptance field for 15 years and counting, and I love the work. I am also licensed in Brené Brown's The Daring Way(tm), a comprehensive look at shame, vulnerability, bravery and connection that has helped me change my own life for the better.
I have lived in a fat body for my entire life. My hope for these courses is to share what I've learned about health, wellness, happiness, and navigating an unfriendly world in the bodies we've got. And, of course, to help anyone who wants to move a little more toward good.
