Therapists Specializing in Body Image in Denver

Body image refers to how you think and feel about your body’s appearance, as well as how you think other people will perceive your body. Body image generally falls somewhere along a continuum, as you can feel different degrees of positivity or negativity towards your body that may change over time.

In reality, bodies come in all shapes and sizes and there is no one ‘normal’ body type. Unfortunately, however, we are exposed regularly to images of a ‘desired’ body type, which can lead to body dissatisfaction. For some, this can cause distress and may lead to various mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, or eating disorders. Many therapeutic approaches can help develop a more positive body image, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, or acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).

To find the best approach for your needs, it can be helpful to discuss your options with one of the therapists in Denver below who specializes in body image.

Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.

Seeking therapy for sexuality issues is difficult and can feel overwhelming, or even embarrassing. I became a sex therapist because I love to help people overcome feelings of shame or uncertainty related to sexuality. You may not be here seeking sex therapy, and that’s okay too. I offer therapy to individuals who have experienced trauma and are seeking relief from symptoms or want support for everyday stress.

I use a client-centered, healing focused approach, with a social justice lens to offer a supportive space for you to explore whatever you wish. After nearly a decade of working in public service as a Social Worker, I am deeply aware of how social justice issues impact mental health. Individual identity is critical to overall wellness and I welcome you exactly as you are.

I would be honored to work with you.

I believe that we are all born whole, with inherent abilities to heal and move towards our highest potential. However, in a society fraught with trauma, loss, abuse, rejection, inequality and unrelenting pressures, it's unsurprising that many of us start to view life as void of meaning, purpose, connection and joy. My role as a psychologist is to help you reconnect with your innate healing abilities by giving compassionate attention to the parts of yourself that might have become fragmented or blocked. When doing this work within a safe, supportive relationship, wholeness becomes inevitable.

I view therapy as a deeply relational process, where we each enter as equal partners with our own expertise: mine in evidence-based therapy, and yours in your unique lived experience. When we combine these perspectives in a safe, affirming context, the therapy process can become a catalyst for healing and transformation. Inner peace and joy are possible, no matter what circumstance you might find yourself in. I have led hundreds of people down this path, and I look forward to connecting with you to see if I might be of assistance as you embark on your own journey.

Embodied healing places YOU in the role of healer. I don’t believe, no, in fact I know, that I do not have any superpower to change your past and present suffering, nor transform your pain into peace. I aim to inspire the container to help facilitate the most powerful tool you will need for healing: the relationship you have with you.

In this relationship you will learn to honor the knowing of both the mind AND body, and therefore lessen the stress caused by rejecting, or even hating, the parts of yourself that “don’t fit” or “aren’t successful”. You’ll learn to reclaim your value, assert your worth and redefine what success means to you.

NO MORE accommodating, assimilating, over-giving for a temporary fix of approval. NO MORE choosing to be one way or the other. It’s time to be all of you.
This relationship calls upon the inner knowing and intuition you already possess that has been silenced for too long and needs to take up space.

In working with me, you will learn that to be in connection with your body is power; to be present with and feel the range of your emotional experiences generates vibrancy; and to no longer let the doubts of mind and ego dictate your behaviors and actions creates peace. You will learn that giving yourself permission to be and feel all that you are and do, is not selfish or heroic, but necessary.

My own healing journey from being quiet, shy and ashamed to exist to becoming a leader, risk-taker, and at times the loudest one in the room, gives me the insiders scoop that this journey is not easy-- in fact, it can feel unraveling and painful. Pain that you can and will, survive. I am honored to support my clients as they rearrange to honor their true essence and integrate all of their inherent gifts to become the powerful and emotional beings they were always meant to be.

It would be my greatest privilege to witness you on your healing journey.

My motto in therapy, and in life, is "whatever works!" What works for us in certain times of our lives no longer continues to works, and we need to shift gears. I'm casual and transparent with my clients. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the most critical part of therapy. If there isn't a connection, it won't work. I will always let you know if believe we aren't a good fit, or if I believe someone else would be better suited to helping you with your particular struggles.

I've had quite a unique life and believe that this is part of what enables me to relate to almost anyone. I am straightforward and honest - not something everyone wants or likes! I will work as hard as you will and be as committed to making changes as you are!

If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, sadness, or motivation you are not alone. Many of us encounter roadblocks that interfere with our ability to live a life full of joy, meaning, purpose, and vitality. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions keep us stuck and cause us to feel we are merely surviving rather than thriving.

As a psychologist and coach, I am here to guide you along your journey to better health and wellness. Whether you are looking to make a major life change or a small adjustment I am here to help you move toward your vision for the future. Let's work together to identify what’s holding you back, overcome the roadblocks, and help you transform into your happiest and healthiest self.

As a human being, I understand wanting to live, not simply exist. Throughout my life I have learned that setting achievable goals and dreaming big can co-exist. I have used many of the same strategies I use in my professional work to achieve my own personal goals. If we are honest with ourselves about what we want, have the courage to work at it day after day, and embrace progress over perfection, we are capable of achieving so much more than we thought possible. Let me help you create a life that is overflowing with the experiences and purpose you’ve always wanted.

If you think we might be a good fit, contact me to schedule a free consultation today. I look forward to hearing from you!
