You are supported.
I hear from people of all ages and identities seeking support for their eating disorders, anxiety, or other mental health challenges. Although I try my best to respond to each person individually and hold space for their bravery in seeking help, I’m not able to respond to everyone or provide professional advice. This page is a list of resources that will hopefully help point you in the direction of healing that’s right for you.
