Description: In my dietetics practice, I help individuals connect to their internal wisdom and develop their ‘sense of self’ with food. Just as we each have our own unique fingerprint, we have our own taste preferences, nutritional needs, body cues, and body size. As we embrace the way we were made and explore our needs, we ultimately find peace with food and respect for our bodies. And as this peace and respect replaces fear and guilt, our true (best) self emerges.I also advocate for clients that experience weight stigma and weight bias with health professionals, and educate health professionals in the area regarding HAES science and principles. In my therapy practice, I seek to provide a clinically sound, safe-haven dedicated to coming alongside men and women as they bravely enter their stories, the wounds they have experienced, the self-protective responses they have developed to survive, and new ways to love and be loved. I treat a full range of issues including Anxiety, Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Body Image Issues, Depression, Family of Origin attachment wounds, Sexual Abuse, and Women’s Issues. I use a core attachment theory that just as relationships can harm, they can heal as well. Drawing on evidenced based, holistic therapies such as EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Narrative, I gently come alongside individuals on their healing path.
