Biographical Info I believe that food plays an important role in connecting us to ourselves and also to those we care about. When an eating disorder or disordered eating develops, it disrupts the relationship with oneself and with others. My goal is to meet you where you are in your recovery process and help you begin or continue your journey. For some individuals, that means having a more structured approach to eating, and for others it means giving yourself permission to eat more freely. My style is to be honest and straightforward, and to support you in finding better ways to nourish your body. If you enjoy being active, and are healthy enough to do so, we can also work on motivations for being active and improving your relationship with physical movement. My approach tends to be direct and supportive, always working within a treatment team. I hope to help you understand why you have used eating disorder behaviors from a nutrition perspective, and help you learn to let them go. I practice from a HAES, non-diet and weight inclusive approach.
