About these Clinics/Practices
I work with professional women who have chronic pain and/or chronic illnesses, many of whom have experienced some combination of being ignored, misdiagnosed, and gaslighted. My clients are trying to be kind to themselves, to trust themselves, and to find ways to get the support that they need without having to prove that their pain is real or that they’re trying hard enough. Before they came to see me, they feared they were out of options. They worried coming to see me would mean being told the same thing they’d heard so many times before, without any interest in or understanding of their actual experience: “Think more positive,” “lose weight,” and “just do yoga.” And they were pretty sure they’d never find someone who would believe them.
Like my clients, you deserve to have a doctor’s appointment that doesn’t leave you in tears. And getting the accommodations and support you need to succeed at work doesn’t have to be totally out of your reach. I believe that all bodies are good bodies, and that includes your body. If you want to learn to be kind to and trust yourself—to believe that you are not and have never been the problem—I’d love to help you get there.
