Welcome

I’m so excited that you are considering nutrition counseling! I understand how important it is to find someone that you feel is worth investing your time and energy into when wanting to achieve specific goals. Health and nutrition are so much more than what we eat. It’s part of our enjoyment in life, stress relief, social gatherings, etc. Therefore, a holistic approach to nutrition and health is extremely important. I base my practice on being person-centered. I don’t rush through sessions, meet clients where they are in the process, proceed at their preferred pace and abilities. I work to help clients build a better relationship with food and in effect, their body and health.

How I work

I believe that my clients are experts on their lives, so I choose to collaborate with them. I take time to understand the client, what they want to achieve, what they are struggling with, and what support they need from me. Our relationships with food and our body image can be complex, and there is no “one size fits all” approach. I tailor my nutrition counseling to my client’s needs. I want to hear my client’s stories, perspectives, and beliefs. My style is accepting, motivational, emphatic, and person-centered.

SPOTLIGHT

I have always had an interest in nutrition and health, and I enjoy helping people. I truly enjoy meeting new people, hearing their concerns and working with them to achieve their goals.
I would want people to really believe that there are no “good” and “bad” foods and learn that all foods can be consumed in moderation. (Unless there is a severe allergy to a food!)
I have never seen a registered dietitian, but I did struggle with self-image when I was younger. I have been in counselling and have learned a lot about myself! Specifically, about building my own self-esteem and setting boundaries.
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. When I read this book years ago it changed my perspective on life. That no matter how bad things are in life, your attitude can make a difference.
I never considered an “ideal client”. I enjoy getting to know them all!
I take time to exercise, rest, and have some quiet time to process what is going on in my life at the time. I also like to spend time with friends and my dogs.
My father so I could make him amazing salmon and let him see that I’m doing well, and my grandfathers because 1 passed away before I was born and the other when I was very young.
I believe in treating the entire person. I need to understand a person’s lifestyle, mental health, beliefs, and preferences in order to collaborate with them and help them successfully meet their goals.

I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and love the Steelers.

I used to be a gymnast and can still do some gymnastic moves.

I love dogs, have 2 lab mixes, and wanted to be a veterinarian when I was a child.
