registered dietitian
founder of redefined 

Hello! I'm so happy you've found this space. I am a registered dietitian that is fiercely passionate about supporting individuals as they heal their relationship with food and discover body acceptance through a weight-inclusive, anti-diet approach. 

As a film-student turned dietitian, starting a nutrition therapy practice wasn't something I had always planned. My own battle with an eating disorder is a big part of my journey here. The relationship with my eating disorder was consuming, manipulative, and would leave me feeling restricted in all aspects of my life. Like so many of the individuals I work with, I spent so much of my life fighting with my body and feeling scared to trust it.


Continued Learning

It wasnt until I was introduced to the Health At Every Size (HAES) movement that I began to embrace a full recovery and life without my eating disorder. I redefined my story through healing my relationship with food and moving towards my authentic definition of health. I founded this practice to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to do the same.

I believe that no one understands your lived experience better than you. In my work with clients, I offer compassion, humor and gentle guidance as I hold space for their stories. I aim to show up as both a human and a dietitian as we partner to free up valuable brain space for what matters most to you. I encourage clients to lead with curiosity and self-compassion as they explore eating and movement patterns that support their physical, mental, and emotional well being - as they define it.

a few of my favorite things

And I'm not talking about the fruit. This is my girl Clementine, aka Clem, Clemmers, Clam, Lil Bean. She has been by my side through a few moves, a whole lot of school, and a few different seasons of life. You might see her snoozing behind me during our sessions and she's super excited to begin her therapy dog training so that she can give lots of cuddles once we're in the office. 

Clementine

For most of my life, I have never had a green thumb - that is until 2020 hit. Now the inside of my home could be easily mistaken for the inside of a Rainforest Cafe. On any given weekend you can probably find me at a local greenhouse looking for the perfect green girlie to add to my collection or gawking over a new leaf sprouting on one of my own. 

Plants

I know this probably isn't a big surprise, especially since iced coffee is having a moment lately, but I could not make a list of my faves without it. You can find me drinking a cup of joe on the rocks 365 days a year, regardless of the temp outside. Ive also been known to shamelessly bring my coffee maker on vacations or always arrive to a session with a coffee in hand. 

Iced coffee

I studied French language and culture for nearly 10 years and even have my bachelors degree in French. I had the opportunity to study abroad in Paris and mon dieu, the food! Food freedom allows us to immerse ourselves in the local culture and history of a region while traveling and in Paris, this might look like a crêpe packed full of melty Nutella and fresh strawberries.

Redefined stories

With nutrition therapy, I have learned to love myself for me. I no longer look to a number for validation. I give myself permission to enjoy life and that might mean eating foods I enjoy and exercising less.

Redefined stories

I leave nutrition sessions feeling good about myself and knowing that with each session I learn to love myself a little more.
