Background

I am an anti-diet registered dietitian who utilizes a Health At Every Size (HAES) framework and incorporates elements of social justice and intuitive eating into my practice. I treat people of all sizes, gender identities, abilities, races, ethnicities, and religions, and I employ curiosity with myself while encouraging my clients to share their lived experiences to provide high quality care. When appropriate, I bring extensive knowledge of mental health care into my practice. I have worked with children, adolescents, and young adults to address nutritional concerns that often accompany diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Neurodivergence. Additionally, I enjoy bringing my fitness training background into my work with adolescent and young adult athletes with REDs and other matters of nutrition.

Additionally, I am a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist (CEDS) designated by the International Association for Eating Disorders Professionals (IAEDP). I treat patients with diagnoses of Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Severe and Enduring Anorexia Nervosa (SE-AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder (OSFED), and Unspecified Feeding and Eating Disorder (UFED). I utilize sensitivity, compassion, and principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) in nutrition sessions to help clients reach their goals. I enjoy working with all ages of adults as well as adolescents. I am also trained in Family Based Therapy (FBT) for Eating Disorders. I have worked at the outpatient, PHP/IOP, and residential levels of care for ED treatment.

I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from University of Redlands, where I received a well-rounded liberal arts education in addition to following a pre-med track. I obtained my Master’s of Science degree in Nutritional Science from San Jose State University and completed my dietetic internship rotations at Kaiser Santa Clara Medical Center and Santa Clara Unified School District. I have also worked as a lifeguard, swim coach, and fitness instructor.
