I treat clients who struggle with eating disorders, dysfunctional eating and chronic dieting; therefore, my treatment methods must be supported by a nutritional philosophy that is scientifically accurate and endorses a positive relationship with food. I like to think of myself as a nutrition counselor, blending the art of counseling with the science of nutrition.
I treat clients who struggle with eating disorders, dysfunctional eating and chronic dieting. I provide a non-diet approach through the utilization of traditional cognitive behavioral therapy strategies in conjunction with the development of intuitive eating skills.
Due to the complex nature of eating disorder therapy, I recommend that new clients be working with a physician and a therapist to provide a full treatment team approach.
For adolescents, I prefer using a family based approach, which involves viewing nutrition as medicine and the first line of treatment for a sick child.
