Eating Disorder Therapy

Shift your inner beliefs, connect to healthier coping strategies, and pave a new, healthier way forward.

Do you find yourself preoccupied with food, calories, numbers on a scale or your appearance?

Have eating meals become a struggle?

Do you avoid social settings and situations that involve sharing meals with others?

Is your self-esteem and self-worth tied up in your appearance?

Are you struggling with low self-esteem related to your body image?

Do you have any of the following behaviors: binging, purging, compulsive exercise, constant dieting?

I am a skilled Eating Disorder Therapist based in Portland, Oregon, and working online with clients throughout all of Oregon and California.

Disordered eating can show up in our lives for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes, behaviors may start off so gradually we might not recognize there’s a problem until things feel out of control. Clients come to me in all stages of treatment. Some have struggled privately for years, others are just at the beginning of their challenges. No matter which stage you find yourself, it’s a sign of courage that you’re here, looking for help. Change is possible.

My approach in treating eating disorders is that there are underlying reasons driving your behaviors and influencing your relationship with food and your body.

Your life story is an essential source of information. As I get to know you and your unique life circumstances, together we will uncover those underlying reasons. Perhaps there are unhealed or ongoing traumas in your life, or a low sense of self-worth. People often manipulate food as a coping strategy for unhealthy beliefs or life challenges and stressors.

“Only when we are brave enough to explore darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

-Brené Brown

In our work, we will draw upon your strengths, resources and values to shift your inner beliefs, connect to healthier coping strategies and pave a new, healthier way forward.

Healing is possible.

I help my clients connect to a greater sense of purpose and authenticity, unlayered from the stories and labels life has placed upon them.

Compassion, curiosity and humor are the heart of my practice. I will help you rediscover your inner strength and resilience as we work towards greater insight and meaning.

Online therapy services are available to clients throughout Oregon and California

Remote therapy treatment by video call or telephone has proven to be a safe and effective way of addressing mental health needs. This option is always available to my clients.

"I have been to several therapists over the past 10 years and have made significantly more progress with Dacia than with anyone else."

"I finally feel stronger, healthier, and am actually very excited to enter into my next chapter with new knowledge about my past and patterns. You are a wonderful therapist!"

"When I first started working with Dacia, I was at one of the lowest points in my life. Dacia helped me connect to more self compassion and provided me with insight as to why my patterns kept occurring."

"I've been able to make so many positive changes in my life. Thanks for all that you do!"

"Dacia is nonjudgmental and will instantly make you feel welcomed and cared for...You couldn’t be in better hands than with her, so don’t wait any longer and take that next step today."

"Seeing Dacia was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. She helped me through a huge loss and life transition. She is also incredibly well-spoken and full of compassion."

"Literally can't say enough positive things about Dacia. She made me feel so completely valid and just respected as a human."

"I am currently seeing Dacia and have been making the investment in therapy for about 6 months now. I still have some work to do, but the changes in my life are undeniable. I would do this all over again in a heartbeat."

I look forward to meeting you.
