Hi!

I’m Keri, she/her, a Southern transplant who grew up in the Northeast and who is very happy to no longer have to wear ankle length puffy coats and live my best sandal life. I am a cis gender, fat, white woman whose toxic trait is hyper-focusing on one craft-like activity, buying all of the paraphernalia that goes along with it, and then letting it sit in my closet, never to be looked at again. I’ve fairly successfully been raising 2 small humans and 2 not-so-small dogs (who I am both obsessed with and driven crazy by – that goes for both the kids and the dogs). I consider myself an introverted extrovert who equally loves being social and around those I love, and hiding under my covers scrolling social media and watching all the Netflix shows.

 

I love working with clients who struggle with food and their body, because I know the amazingly huge impact it can have on your life to struggle a little less in those areas (note that I didn’t say get to a *perfect* place with food and your body, because I think every little step can make a huge difference in your quality of life). I encourage clients to challenge the status quo and what they have been taught because I have done the same. I have also struggled with these same issues, so I believe my combination of both lived and professional experience makes me a kick-ass therapist in these domains. 

 

I am a weight inclusive, Health at Every Size (HAES) aligned, queer and gender-affirming practitioner who is constantly learning and striving to do better to meet the needs of all types of people who enter my care.
