You're not sure how to find relief. Maybe someone you love has died. Maybe you are the survivor of a traumatic event. Maybe you keep hitting the same roadblocks in life. You may have difficulty remembering things, completing tasks, getting out of bed, or going to work. You may feel guilty, angry, confused, sad, tired, or hurt. It may be hard to relate to others or find meaning in things you once enjoyed. Your body may ache. You may be experiencing chronic emotional or physical pain. You may not be able to perform to the degree to which you desire. You may feel completely alone. You're not alone.

I am a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) and Medical Nutrition Therapist with expansive experience treating eating disorders since 1991 in all levels of care. I passionately believe that those who make Nutrition Restoration PRIORITY ONE on their journey to recovery consistently have far greater and more sustainable outcomes than those who do not. I have specialized experience in the re-feeding of high medical risk cases in an outpatient setting. While typically these cases are referred to a higher level of care, I offer innovative alternatives when appropriate.

Managing daily issues can be daunting if you're already feeling anxious or depressed. You may think you are practicing self compassion, but your efforts may not seem fruitful. You may be asking yourself "Why am I getting stuck on the same loop?" My goal is to help you overcome the obstacles keeping you stuck, such as past traumas, abandonment, grief, loss, or multigenerational patterns, which I believe are universal even though they look different for each of us. I offer new strategies, education, and insight-building skills to close the doors on the obstacles keeping you stuck and open the doors to compassion and hope.
