Registered Dietitian & Medical Nutrition Therapist
In order to reduce the shame and guilt from the “good” food “bad” food mentality, I follow an “all foods fit” approach regardless of where you are with your nutrition goals. I am focused and committed to helping my clients improve how they view food and love to build genuine rapport with those I work with. In doing so we are together building a safe place where they can be themselves. I would like my clients to know that I am not the food police. I am not here to tell them what they can or can’t have. I am here to help them enjoy all of the foods they love and figure out which ones fuel them to be their best selves.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in dietetics at Arizona State University and my Master of Science and dietetic internship at Auburn University. I have worked in all levels of care and love helping clients through outpatient continued care as they maneuver the nuances of life in recovery.
Recovering from an eating disorder is not easy and can be extraordinarily difficult at times, however the more we work together the more at peace you will feel when you eat. I will be there to support your recovery journey every step of the way.

As a student of ASU I had a professor who worked in eating disorders and she was the most knowledgeable and passionate person I met. It drove me to follow in her footsteps and be just as passionate.

I am most proud of reaching my goals to becoming a dietitian.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be Marilyn Monroe. I felt that she didn’t have anyone in her life that didn’t use her for her fame and I would want to be that friend she could feel safe with.
I am most grateful for my family. They have always supported me in whatever I want to do.
I would read more.
I love helping others live life outside of diet culture.
