I am uniquely qualified to provide a comprehensive nutrition status and risk of decline assessment in order to help determine the safety and individualized treatment needs of your high risk patients.
I have over 30 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian and Medical Nutrition Therapist treating men, women, teens and adolescents of all backgrounds and levels of care helping them to overcome disordered eating and body image concerns. In those years it has become very apparent that the key to successful treatment is a dedicated, communicative, an experienced treatment team. With our combined nutritional, medical, and psychological expertise we are a powerful force against these diseases.
I practice through a Health At Every Size™ lens supporting my clients to develop a positive relationship with food and their bodies. It is my ambition to empower them with the tools they need to learn how to eat, rather than obsess over what not to eat. It has been my experience that the mental and emotional capacity to accomplish this begins with nutrition restoration and ends with sustainable habits that support them in maintaining status. Only then do our patients have the fuel they need to process the difficult emotions that accompany this healing life change.
I offer my clients the option to see me in a traditional office setting in Scottsdale, Arizona as well as virtually through a HIPAA Secure, PCI-Compliant telehealth platform. I utilize Healthie © electronic medical record system and pride myself on sharing timely and detailed appointment notes to the medical and mental health colleagues I work with, as well as progress updates via encrypted email. Whether you are seeking a dietitian to develop a team treatment plan with or are looking for a professional consult to support your clients nutritional needs, I have the knowledge and resources to help you.
If my approach sounds effective for those you treat, or if you think you could be of service to clients of mine, please reach out by completing the contact form below to schedule a virtual meet and greet. I would love to get better acquainted and discuss what mutual support we have to offer!
This approach is most commonly implemented in inpatient treatment centers, and for many suffering, inpatient may not be the best choice. The growing demand in our field and the technological advancements being made in virtual telehealth present a modern solution, virtual intensive outpatient treatment. My extensive experience providing medical nutrition therapy at every level of care, including specialized skills in addressing refeeding syndrome, makes me uniquely qualified to provide a comprehensive nutrition status and risk of decline assessment in order to help determine the safety and individualized treatment needs of your high risk patients.
