Chris Sherman, LPC, LCPC, E-RYT 200, CPT, GFI, (they/them) is a therapist specializing in the intersection of eating disorders, neurodivergence, and gender dysphoria. Chris has over 10 years of experience working with eating disorders in a variety of settings: residential, out-patient, and community-based non-profits. Their professional experience at both institutions and grass roots organizations gives them perspective on how traditional treatments often fail vulnerable populations. Their lived experience as a gender expansive, neurodivergent human drives their passion for providing effective clinical care for those with intersecting, marginalized identities.
