Registered Dietitian & Nutritionist
Eating Disorder & Mindful Eating Specialist
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food
First off, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read a little more about me and my food philosophy.
I'm the type of Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist who believes that a healthy & nourished body makes it easier to achieve a healthy mind. If your mindset about food is in the right place, it's easier to practice intuitive eating, and therefore embrace a healthy lifestyle.
In the beginning, I like to identify where you are, mentally and emotionally, then we can try to figure out how I can best support you in your journey. Every person is different, and therefore not one diet plan is going to work for everyone. People have come to me with different aliments, like gastrointestinal distress, eating disorders, and some just want me to optimize nutrition for themselves and their families.
I can be the connecting piece,
to help put your puzzle together.
Nutrition is a critical role in the recovery process for eating disorders. Without proper nutrition, it is hard, cognitively, to work on what may be coming up for you. I have extensive experience working with eating disorders. And I've had great success helping people overcome their own fears around certain foods, and finding an optimal food balance. I truly understand that this is a hard process, and that working on rebuilding the relationship with food is going to be challenging. But that's why I'll be there to help guide you through the process. You and I will work together on where you feel like your relationship with food is broken. We'll take on each challenge together, and work on healing that relationship with food.
I believe in intuitive/mindful eating methods, and giving your body the chance to tell you whether you are full or hungry. My methods include a non-diet and a Health at Every Size approach. In order to achieve optimal health, there needs to be a healthy balance between different food groups. Each food group can provide essential vitamins and minerals that can provide a foundation for your body and allow you to feel the best way that you can and allow for daily body function. If all food groups are in balance, then it's easier for our body to tell us when we're hungry or full. Identifying with certain hunger and fullness cues is optimal for creating that healthy relationship with food.
My goal is to provide you with the best nutrition education and guidance to help you achieve your goals. One of my greatest joys in life is seeing a person achieve his or her goals and to be able to reflect on how far you've come.
It would be my honor to be that special piece in your puzzle, and help you achieve optimal nutrition.
