TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

I am passionate about counseling and health education with primary emphasis on lifestyle management which is key to any successful Health & Wellness program. My approach to nutrition care is personalized to each patient’s needs. One diet or lifestyle choice does not fit all. I believe that a healthy moderately-portioned, balanced diet combined with adequate physical activity lays the vital foundation to a healthy life. I utilize empathy and motivational speaking in all my sessions.

Yes, I believe it is possible to recover from an eating disorder. I define recovery as enjoying a healthy relationship with food and learning to eat healthfully.
