"Without food, there is no life."
I want to help you trust yourself & your body
feeling overwhelmed by the amount of nutrition information out there & feeling confused or not sure what to believe?
frustrated with trying yet another diet only to wind up back at the same weight, or higher, and more disordered around food?
overwhelmed by your busy schedule and feeling unable to plan and prepare what to eat?
as a parent, unsure of how to instill healthy habits around food and movement with your children?
suffering from an eating disorder, severely disordered eating and/or a disordered body image or have a child that is?
Has some or all of this led you to feeling out of trust with your knowledge of and trust in your internal cues for your appetite?
I practice from a weight inclusive, non-diet approach to help you ditch dieting, say good-bye to the food police and reconnect with your internal wisdom regarding your appetite and your emotional needs. I provide individualized and evidence-based medical nutrition therapy for clients of all ages (and medical conditions) as well as families interested in learning the best feeding practices for feeding their children. I have been a registered dietitian for over 13 years and a certified Intuitive Eating counselor and Health at Every Size practitioner for over 5 years. I am licensed to practice in the state of New York and accept most major insurance providers. I offer telehealth visits over the phone and/or virtually as well as in-office sessions.
As a registered dietitian nutritionist, a certified Intuitive Eating counselor and a Health at Every Size® practitioner, I am dedicated to helping others:
recover from dieting, disordered eating and eating disorders
heal and normalize their relationship with food while moving away from unsustainable diets
regain trust in their internal eating cues for adequate nourishment, satisfaction and pleasure (without the guilt!)
(re)develop a healthy, positive relationship with their bodies (improving your body image) and with movement
learn strategies for planning and preparing meals based on their daily schedule
live their lives better connected to their bodies, minds & self-care behaviors, not just to try to change the number on the scale!
Individual & Family Nutrition Counseling
With over 13 years of experience as a dietitian, I am an expert in providing nutrition education & counseling to children (and their parents), adolescents, adults, older adults, patients with (and families of) eating disorders. I practice from a weight inclusive (weight neutral) and intuitive eating (non-diet) framework to help clients (and their families) improve their knowledge, confidence and behaviors around their eating and lifestyle behaviors in healthful and sustainable ways.
I collaborate with a local therapist group to hold group counseling sessions for clients working towards eating disorder recovery.
I am available for consulting projects for organizations and businesses that are looking for nutrition information that are aligned with my philosophy.
