My Philosophy of Care

I am an anti-diet eating disorder dietitian. Through Intuitive Eating and the Health at Every Size® approach, I am here to support you in your pursuit of well-being without fad diets, restriction, or a focus on your weight. We‘ll define what health and well-being means to you (and doesn't) and focus on the behaviors and habits that can help support your goals. Along the way, I will be your biggest cheerleader and supporter as we celebrate wins and tackle any challenges. I practice evidence-based nutrition, but always combine my knowledge with your lived experience so my approach is 100% individualized. I seek to understand my clients as a whole person and walk alongside them as we face challenges and celebrate wins together. My approach is collaborative and client-led. I promise to always bring compassion, curiosity, and non-judgement to all of our appointments. With a background in public health, I've borne witness to the systems that impact our access to participating in and receiving health care. My goal as a dietitian is to support your access to compassionate, equitable, non-stigmatizing, and individualized care.

About Me & My Practice

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion from the University of Iowa, as well as a Masters of Public Health (MPH) Nutrition from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and have completed additional supervision/trainings with a number of folks with various lived experiences that differ from my own. As a provider with thin privilege, I have greatly benefited by learning from the work of fat activists and credit them for my ability to practice from the HAES framework and advocate against fatphobia when coordinating care with other medical providers and consulting in public health spaces. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outside, gardening and tending our fruit orchard, cooking, playing soccer, reading, spending time with family/friends, and snuggling with my dog.

Accessibility Considerations

I currently see all clients virtually via telehealth (I do not offer in-person appointments at this time). Interpreters are available upon request.
