About Me

I decided to pursue a career as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist after my own experience with an Eating Disorder. I didn’t know how to feed myself. I remember feeling lost, confused, stressed, depressed, anxious, and helpless. I didn’t know how to move forward. 

 

A Nutritionist helped me turn things around. She gave me clear daily steps that I could take in order to slowly climb out of the hole in which I had fallen. She normalized my experiences and helped dissolve the feelings of shame that can accompany eating and weight related issues. She made me realize that I wasn’t alone. She helped me believe that finding health and stability with food, body, and mind was 100% possible.

 

Many years, a degree, and multiple certifications have passed and I am now able to provide this same support and guidance for my clients.  I feel incredibly grateful to do this work.  I am qualified.  I am experienced.  I can relate.  And I can help.  Improving your health and finding stability with food, body, and mind isn’t fast or easy, but it is possible, liberating, and worth the effort.

 

I look forward to getting to know you and walking with you on your path to better health.
