I believe change is possible for all people. Psychotherapy is a powerful tool to help facilitate change and create the life that you want. As a psychotherapist and registered dietitian I bring a unique set of skills to help people heal their relationship with food.
My goal is to work collaboratively with clients to reduce food and weight preoccupation and teach clients to trust their bodies, rather than a diet, to know how to feed themselves. I use a variety of treatment modalities in my practice including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, mindfulness & stress reduction and education to help clients free themselves from food issues, anxiety, depression and relationship issues.
For over fifteen years I have been providing nutritional counseling to clients. I hold a bachelors degree in Nutritional Science from California Polytechnic State University. I have been a Registered Dietitian (RD) since 1997 and have worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices and private practice. For over ten years I have been a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). In 2005 I earned a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin and currently I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, traveling and gardening.
