My path to the study of nutrition and counseling began in 2008 when my doctor helped me realize the connection between my mood and my choices in food. She suggested a dietary shift that changed my life. After years of study and clinical work I've learned many other ways to help the brain and body through nutrition and counseling. From 2012-2014 I worked as an intern therapist at Seattle Counseling Service where I taught an ongoing Food & Mood group. Since then I have worked in private practice helping people with food and mental health issues.
My clinical interests include anxiety, food's effect on mood, digestive health, trauma, LGBTQ health and empowerment, and women's health and empowerment. I also really enjoy working with people who have chronic health conditions such as prediabetes and diabetes. I'm a Certified Nutritionist and Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I'm collaborative, empathetic, and driven; I believe wholeheartedly in utilizing peoples' strength and internal wisdom to help them create the lives they want to live.
