Feel like you’re in a rut with food? Unsure if your meals are on the right track? Let me be a sounding board and source of information to help you achieve your goals!

My goal is to walk beside you on your journey to feeling better about your nutritional needs.

About me. 

Professional Wedding Dancer Wanna-be, Donut Fanatic, Gardener, Cat Rescuer, Street Biker, Netflix Aficionado

I started college adrift outside of a deep feeling that I wanted to help people. After some intense soul searching and college credits, I found my way to nutrition and knew I was on the right path. Dietetics created endless avenues to make someone’s life better. During my training, I struggled because I wanted to offer more than a brief consult. I wanted to share my knowledge and provide support throughout the process of change - not just a brief instruction at the beginning. I found my way to outpatient nutrition counseling and haven’t looked back.

 

I began helping people heal their relationship with food in an eating disorder center. This work has been challenging but also deeply rewarding and humbling. It is truly an honor to partner with someone while they explore the impact of food on their body. Everyday is different. I laugh, cry, share and grow with my clients and their loved ones. Through the years, I’ve learned when someone needs a push, a co-pilot or empathy. It has also made me an optimist and believer that anyone has the ability to make changes.

 

I have also learned that nutrition is not one size fits all and encourage my clients to give me feedback. I am more interested in finding tools that work for you than following a rigid format. My hope is to help you problem solve your nutritional challenges to allow you to feel better physically and mentally so you can resume control and enjoy food. This may be a quick check in through one session, food record feedback through e-journaling or a longer partnership. Whatever your needs, I am eager to work with you.
