Registered Licensed Dietician

Certified Intutive Eating Counselor

HELLO!



My career began with a focus on eating disorders.  In my work with this population, I discovered Intuitive Eating developed Elyse Resch, MS, RD, FADA, CEDRD and Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD.  To me, this was the missing piece to having a healthy relationship with food. I became a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor in 2014.


Damage done by restrictive weight loss diets:

Dieting causes weight gain

More diets = less calories to achieve the same results

Fat overshooting:  your body retains fat as it anticipates the next restrictive diet

If you lose weight on a low-calorie diet, you need keep eating that low intake to maintain the weight loss for the rest of your life!


Benefits of Intuitive Eating:

Achieve a healthy weight

Healthy relationship with food

Repair past issues with food including trauma.

Positive body image

Understand how disordered eating impacts your relationship with food

Be able to enjoy eating!



We offer individual sessions and groups that focus on Intuitive Eating in the Woodbury Office.
