About: About


My philosophy is set from a non-diet approach to wellness and recovery. I am passionate about helping others nourish their bodies, minds, and spirits in ways that are rewarding and without shame or judgment. Using an intuitive eating and mindfulness based approach, I provide guidance to help my clients heal from a variety of eating disorders and body image concerns. I understand how important it is to regain trust with your body and learn to make food choices from a place of nourishment and pleasure, rather than a place of deprivation.

About: About


I received my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition from California State University,

Los Angeles, and completed my dietetic internship at California State University, Long Beach, where I received my Master of Science in Nutritional Science.

To increase my level of expertise in the eating disorder field, I became a Certified

Eating Disorders Specialist (CEDS) through the International Association

of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). I have also worked as the primary dietitian at

eating disorder, substance use, and mental health treatment centers throughout the

greater Los Angeles area, providing nutrition education and counseling, meal support,

grocery store tours, and culinary support.
