Scope of Practice:

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.

Values and Philosophy:

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.

Techniques and Methodology:

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.
