As your dietitian, I do not take the role of the food or weight police. That has never been, nor will it ever be, the motivation for my work. Eating is something we do multiple times a day. It is part of our behavior. Making changes in how we eat is changing our behaviors which is HARD. We will figure it out together, don’t worry. I will work with you to discover what changes are truly meaningful for you. We must deeply believe in the reasons for making changes with food in order to make those changes the new norm. Without a rooted reason for change, a bad week can throw us completely off track and we’ve suddenly forgotten what we were working on in the first place.

Changing how you eat is hard. Period. Don’t worry-I’m on your side.

My work with eating disorders has taught me that human nature fights against hard set rules when it comes to food. Because of this, I will work with you on understanding your specific nutrition needs, hunger and fullness, cravings, desires, physical symptoms associated with food so you can get on with your life! We must fuel our bodies, but this looks different for each person. Over time, you will discover a rhythm with nutrition that suits your needs: mind, body and soul.
