Mindful Eating + Nutrition Services

As a psychologist specializing in nutritional psychology & mindful eating, I team up with clients with a personalized approach for a healthy mind & body

Social media bombards society with the countless celebrity endorsed diets (tricks to shed those last 10lbs before summer… sound familiar?), images of the ‘perfect’ female body, & food faddisms that tell us to eliminate certain foods because of their perceived harmfulness or incorporating foods because of their ‘newly discovered’ health benefits. But just how sustainable are these trends? Not to mention the cost associated with them. Even though there’s endless information at our fingertips, its a heck of a job sifting through it all and try to make sense of it (that’s what I’m here for).

As a psychologist specializing in nutrition psychology & mindful eating & eating disorders/disordered eating patterns, I have the education & experience to tailor our work to YOU! You’ll complete a 3-Day Food Journal for Mood (3-DFJM), which is a tool that allows simple assessment of the impact daily dietary intake is likely having on mood. Based on the results of the 3-DFJM, a method of nutritional remediation called Macronutrient Mood Therapy (MMT) can be applied. I also offer mindful meal prep & mindful eating exercises for in session & in-between sessions.

I strive to collaborate with clients over nutrition & other nutrition professionals to create a sustainable meal plan to fuel your body & mind. It’s time to take the stress out of eating & get excited about food again! In the end, this process is about YOU taking control of YOUR health, making informed decisions that may allow you to lead a longer, happier & healthier life.
