I am a San Diego based Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) with my master’s degree in nutritional science. I specialize in behavioral nutrition and I am certified as an Intuitive Eating Counselor. My passion for nutrition and normal eating arose from my own struggles with food and body image. I overcame many of my issues with food using the Intuitive Eating approach. Re-discovering normal eating has improved all aspects my life so dramatically that sharing that joy with others has become my life's goal and passion. In addition, I am a Body/Fat Acceptance and Health at Every Size advocate. I believe that health can be achieved regardless of size.
In addition, I am a mom of two beautiful (and lively!) children. With both we introduced food using the baby-led weaning approach. This has become a passion of mine, as it allows babies to learn about food in their own way.
Many of the people I’ve worked with have their own struggles with food, whether they use food to cope with stress and emotions, are too busy to truly enjoy food, or overeat simply because they don’t know when to stop. In my practice I’ve found that how one eats is just as important to overall health as what one eats. By deconstructing behaviors around eating and food I can help people achieve normal eating and improved health. My goal is to help others lead a more fulfilling life by re-discovering their love of food while maintaining great health.
