I work with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with eating disorders. I will work with you and your team to develop a nutritional plan that meets your body’s requirements. Additionally, I will provide you with accurate nutritional information to help you achieve recovery.
I work with clients of all ages who struggle with GI issues including constipation, bloating, pain, diarrhea, etc. We will work together to evaluate your labs, understand your nutritional deficits, and integrate foods that will seek to improve functioning and reduce long-term distress.
I work with parents and children who struggle with feeding and eating issues including GERD, picky eating, sensitivity to textures or flavors, or swallowing fears. We can work together to get your child eating in a normal way with flexibility and openness.
I also work with clients who struggle to maintain adequate health due, in part, to nutritional limitations. These include celiac disease, diabetes, crohn’s disease, cancer, IBS, or other medical complications. I will provide nutritional education and support to help reduce the impact nutrition plays on your medical complications.

I provide nutritional counseling to my clients so they can re-write the rules they have that surround food and exercise. I provide accurate information, meal plans, and meal support to children, adolescents, and adults with disordered eating patterns including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, picky eating, night eating, or food fears or phobias. Together we can work to develop an adaptive and balanced approach to your nutritional wellness.
I can assist you in developing a balanced meal plan that reduces the likelihood of stress eating, emotional eating, binge eating, yo-yo dieting, or restricting.
