Body Positive / Health At Every Size
In therapy, clients may be struggling with what “health” means in a society where that definition seems to constantly change. As a therapist who self-identifies as Fat and has gone through my own struggles with internalized fat-shaming, I believe in a more humanistic perspective to our bodies, healthy eating, and physical exercise. At Apoio, that means therapy is conducted from a Health at Every Size (HAES) framework that celebrates body diversity, challenges cultural expectations, and finds joy in being physically active.
Note: I am not a medical doctor or nutritionist and may suggest you reach out to one during the duration of therapy. That said, I am a mental health expert and am here to navigate the emotional tolls of this journey with you.
