I feel fortunate every day to know that I have found exactly what I am meant to do. I am deeply passionate about helping those with eating disorders and food anxiety. I understand what it is like to feel “not good enough” or think “I would be better if I could just change a few things.” For some, these thoughts and feelings are expressed through food and body relationships. By challenging the beliefs we have about food and our bodies, we can challenge our thoughts of inadequacy.
Despite evidence to the contrary, we are told it is possible to healthfully manipulate our shape and size by changing the way that we approach food and exercise. What they are really saying is that we need to change and that we aren’t good enough exactly as we are. THIS IS NOT TRUE!!! I feel so grateful that I am able to help people discover a better relationship with food and their bodies as a way of finally finding self acceptance.
I have a Master’s degree in Nutrition from Hunter College School of Public Health and completed my dietetic internship at the National Institutes of Health. I also participated in professional trainings on Intuitive Eating and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
When I am not working, you can find me camping, baking, and trying to DIY all of the furniture and decorations in the house with the help of my loving partner.
