About Me

Hi, my name is Andrea (pronounced Ann-dray-uh) and I identify as a bisexual, cis-gendered white female (among other privileged identities), and I work within an anti-racist, fat positive and sex positive framework. I use she and her pronouns. Before opening my private practice in 2017, I enjoyed working and volunteering with various non-profit agencies in Seattle: Downtown Emergency Service Center, Full Life Care, Multifaith Works, Seattle Counseling Service, and the Samarya Center. 

 

My interest in nutrition began with my own recovery from an eating disorder in 2005. With the help of numerous therapists and treatment providers, I learned that caring for my body is about so much more than the specific type or quantity of food I put into my body, and have since received specialized training and education from pioneers in the size acceptance and intuitive eating fields. Over many years, forming a kind and respectful relationship with my body created the conditions for me to eventually grow more self-compassion and self-acceptance for all of the parts of me, including those parts stigmatized by systemic oppression and wounded from trauma.
