Bio and Information
My practice centers around working with clients to help them create a positive relationship with food. Often we treat food as a tool for diet and control, which makes this a negative aspect in our lives because we move from enjoying tastes and many of the other benefits of foods, to restricting our intake and types of food. (Most commonly fat and carbohydrates.) My goal when working with clients is to make food enjoyable again and to strive towards balance, while helping to overcome eating disorders, weight struggles and other chronic conditions. Working towards this balance is a foundation to creating lifelong positive eating changes. We will work together to make an individualized plan that could include menu planning, goal setting and will explore your relationships with food. During these sessions I will focus on listening to your struggles with food, and will provide information and guidance towards your individual goals. Working at the center provides a perfect opportunity for coordination of care and I regularly will be consulting with other providers to improve comprehensive care for my clients.
I entered the field of nutrition because of my complete love for food, it’s healing properties and to be able to explain the scientific reasons of how food interacts with chronic disease and our bodies. Eating the right kinds of food for your body can have a very positive influence not only on health but also on sports performance. I have experience counseling both the adult and pediatric population in weight management, eating disorders, sports nutrition and chronic disease such as gastrointestinal conditions, heart disease and diabetes.
My passions: Gardening, cooking, running (half and full marathoner), skiing, wine making and spending time with my family.
