On the road of recovery, I will help you climb the highest mountains and maneuver through all the peaks and valleys along the way.
The first step to beginning nutrition therapy for an eating disorder or any other reason is to schedule your initial assessment. This will be our first time working together, so whether we are meeting face-to-face in my Scottsdale office or virtually through my telehealth platform, getting to know you, your history, and your current reasons for seeking treatment is my main priority. Some people come to see a dietitian or nutritionist expecting to just talk about food. I always found this to be a little ironic because in this 90 minute nutrition assessment we will talk about so much more than apples and bananas. Some people are excited to see me and eager to learn, while others are resistant and consider the registered dietitian/nutritionist to be the ‘food police’. I’ve been treating eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder (BED) for close to 30 years and know there is also going to be those who are understandably scared and maybe even a little lost. While eating disorder treatment, learning how to eat, and finding your way around a grocery store might be new for you, it is not for me. My practice manager and I have left no stone unturned in working to create a very safe and dignified experience for all of my clients both online and in person.
