I understand the challenges individuals and families face during the healing process from eating disorders and disordered eating – whether it’s poor body image, anorexia, binge eating, bulimia or mindless eating. In my practice, I work collaboratively with my clients to connect to the internal sense of trust, nourishment and self-care.
For so many people, the intuitive connection between our bodies and food is severed or changed through feeding practices, teasing or struggling with low self esteem, depression or anxiety. Because I have a passion for continued learning, I have built on my university foundation of nutrition, psychology and psychiatry, by continuing to get training in CBT, DBT, mindful eating, intuitive eating, affect regulation and FBT and Maudsley. I integrate different modalities in my nutrition counseling of children, teens and adults. I also work collaboratively with therapists and physician to provide a multidisciplinary approach.
While I have been treating individuals with eating disorders in the Greater Toronto Area for many years, I also offer a wide variety of services to meet the many needs of clients in my practice. I work with my clients to develop their own ‘food identity’. If that includes vegetarianism, veganism, gut problems such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), food intolerances or allergies, sport nutrition, or even shift work, a suitable easy-to-follow eating and lifestyle plan is possible.
