I’m licensed as a therapist as well as a registered dietitian nutritionist, and I’m here to work with you to improve the quality of your life using either psychotherapy or nutrition. As a mental health counselor, I work with adults on issues ranging from but not limited to, multicultural and LGBTQ issues, general stressors of life, anxiety, depression, interpersonal/family/relationship issues, and developing healthy coping skills. As a registered dietitian and nutritionist, I work primarily with adults in recovery for eating disorders or who are managing other chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
As your clinician, I hope to partner with you to develop the skills you need to deepen your insights and gain the clarity you may need at this moment. To that end, I invite you to bring your strengths, challenges, hopes, fears, and your intersecting identities to our work together. No matter if it’s psychotherapeutic issues or nutrition-related issues, I hope to support you in a way that is adaptive, responsive, and challenges you to grow.
For psychotherapy, my theoretical orientation is psychodynamic psychotherapy and informed by multicultural, feminist, social justice, and relational lenses. My style tends to be interactive, curious, and direct. For nutrition, I utilize non-diet approaches to health and nutrition such as Health at Every Size (HAES), and Intuitive Eating.
