I'm Dr. Paula Freedman, Licensed Clinical Psychologist & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor
Dr. Paula Freedman, Psy.D. (she/her) ~ Founder & Clinical Director
My own experience in therapy awakened me to my calling. I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology so that I could pay it forward.
Today, I help people of diverse backgrounds and identities learn to cope with anxiety, heal from past trauma, and recover from disordered eating and eating disorders. We all deserve to live meaningful, rewarding lives. I specialize in treating high-achieving adults who have a hard time letting go of control and tolerating uncertainty. I particularly enjoy helping people connect to their inner wisdom and learn to trust their intuition.
I'm on a mission to make healthcare welcoming, respectful, and compassionate for ALL bodies. I advocate for size inclusivity and promote the adoption of the Health at Every Size framework in health, fitness, and wellness spaces. As a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, I will help you develop a peaceful relationship with food, reject harmful diet culture messaging, and feel at-home in your body.
In addition to my individual therapy work, I provide education and supervision for psychology graduate students and therapists-in-training, teaching them to assess for disordered eating more effectively and promote healing from Diet Culture in their work.
Many of us are held back by fear, anxiety, or beliefs about how we "need to be." The world needs us to show up authentically, yet we can only do this when we don't let shame control us. I'll help you dive deep to find your purpose, reject harmful social messaging, and heal your relationship with your mind and your body.
