As an anti-diet dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor, I'm passionate about helping people improve their relationship with food. I am a champion for pleasurable, satisfying food and I believe that you deserve to eat free from guilt and shame. I feel strongly that healthy behaviors aren't restrictive, and I believe respectful care for all bodies is essential. I recognize that access to adequate food and respectful healthcare are essential human rights.
My goal is to help people reconnect to the needs of their body through self-compassion, curiosity, and the practice of nonjudgmental exploration. We will work to help you build trust in your body and heal your relationship with food through increased awareness, and experience.
I believe it is essential to practice inclusive care. I hope to create and provide a space that feels as welcoming and as safe as possible for all.
Let's explore how you can cultivate a peaceful relationship with food and your body.
