My Philosophy of Care

Nutrition counseling is provided with full consent and based on the client's goals. I believe it is imperative that providers leave their own expectations at the door, & truly listen to what the client is communicating about their care, goals, & barriers. I am present to validate and provide guidance, and am not an expert on any individual’s body. I recognize how inaccessible affirming care is and offer sliding scale sessions. I value the time, work, & pain of marginalized communities in the healthcare field by engaging in mutual aid, paying for work, seeking education from those with lived experience, & continuing to challenge and work on oppressive mindsets that I still hold.
I believe health is very individual, and is not required or owed, to me or society. Being a Health at Every Size® provider means I'm helping clients work towards any health-promoting (physical, emotional, spiritual, etc.) or harm-reduction behaviors that they desire. I'm also working to break systems of oppression by educating on Health at Every Size®, how racism drives diet culture, & how body/food beliefs are often rooted in fatphobia. I use this education in sessions with clients & their families to ensure they have as much information to form their own opinions & inform decisions about their health. Our current weight-focused healthcare system is harmful (fatal). I hope to use my privilege to help change the system, and at minimum change the level of care that my clients receive.

About Me & My Practice

I have been a dietitian since 2017. The typical dietetics education never sat well with me - It is very entrenched in restrictive behaviors and a "fix-it" mentality. I was not interested in providing restrictive and prescriptive recommendations in a repetitive and robotic manner. During grad school, I was able to obtain a minor in educational psychology, and my exploration into more of the therapeutic world began. I was introduced to Health at Every Size® via social media and sought more education. HAES® aligns with my own beliefs, as well as what I have seen in the lives of my family and friends. It is not possible to tell someone's health status by looking at them, and health should include personal choice, inclusive systems, and emotions. I have attended countless webinars, live streams, and workshops in the HAES® space, and also have been trained in DBT and assessing suicidality. I am continuing to seek training in the treatment of fat and superfat+ folks. The BIPoC Eating Disorders Conference by Whitney Trotter and Angela Goens has informed my practice, as well as a wonderful masterclass by Leslie Jordan Garcia and Angel Austin on Intimacy in a Fat Body. Others have described my approach as firm, but nurturing.
I live in Austin, TX and really enjoy the outdoors. In my free time you’ll find me lounging in the sun, walking my dogs, or gardening. I’ve loved connecting with clients over pets during the increase in virtual services the past 3 years.

Accessibility Considerations

I use a couch in my office for seating for all clients. My office building has accessible parking, entrances to the building, an elevator, and clear pathways through the halls. I have used Google Meet for sessions to include captions. I have clients who prefer non-mouth words for communication, and they actively use the "chat" feature in our sessions. I have 2 different blood pressure cuffs that are adjustable. I do not have other accessibility options for clients that use ASL or other languages, but I do have referral sources to support clients who require services in another language. The intake paperwork allows filling in of name and pronouns, and I always discuss with clients that billing documents for insurance do require legal names but actual name will be used otherwise.
