My Philosophy of Care

I take an integrative holistic approach to nutrition, health, and wellness to help my clients restore balance to all parts of themselves and their lifestyle - they are so much more than just their symptoms!

I believe in creating a safe and welcoming space for everyone. I have a weight-inclusive practice and honor (and promote) the Health at Every Size® principles. I use intuitive eating principles in my practice to help people establish a healthy relationship with food and their bodies.

I do not discuss or use "weight" in my work with my clients; I do not promote diets or food restrictions, nor do I label foods as "good" or "bad". I also don't use or define "health" as a measure of morality.

I believe self-compassion, grace, kindness, and laughter are foundational pieces of the healing process and try to bring those into every session with my clients.

About Me & My Practice

I came to this work through my own experiences with trauma/PTSD, anxiety, and GI dysfunction (as a result of my trauma). I know what it's like to have to be your own health advocate and not feel heard or supported in the medical system.

As a practitioner, I believe in authenticity, transparency, integrity, and humility. I put my clients' needs at the center of my care and consider them the "experts" in them/themselves. I'm there to listen to them, make them know they are heard and valued, and provide whatever clinical guidance I can based on my education and research.

I came into HAES® during my Masters program and found I was (unfortunately) in the minority in my approach to health - not using weight as a marker of health and fighting back against dieting/diet culture. I tried to bring light to the the discrimination faced by people based on size, gender/sexual orientation, and race/ethnicity. Any chance I had to be an advocate for HAES®, fat liberation, BIPOC, and anti-diet views, I took them.

I admit my lived experiences as a thin, white, cis person are different than those I advocate for and support. I work intentionally to continue educating myself to be someone contributing to this narrative in a positive and meaningful way. I also have a strong referral list for those who want a practitioner with the same lived experiences.

I'm a licensed nutritionist who loves ice cream and salads equally the same - simply because they taste great to me!!!

Accessibility Considerations

My practice is 100% virtual and done through Zoom, so access to a computer, internet, and video camera are necessary. All forms are able to be completed online (fillable forms) and accessed through a HIPAA-secure portal.
