I became a registered dietitian in 2011 after completing both my bachelor's degree in food and nutrition and a Coordinated Program in Dietetics at the University of Alabama. I then earned a master's degree in community health education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Before working in private practice, I was the lead dietitian at an eating disorder treatment facility at the residential and partial hospitalization (PHP) levels-of-care, and I served as the dietitian for the Eating Disorder Treatment Team at UAB's Student
Health and Wellness Center.
About My Philosophy
My clients are so much more than their "food problem;" they are people, first. It is my greatest joy to get to know my clients' perspectives, hopes, values, and goals. Each person has unique food- and movement-related needs that need to be honored. I believe that all foods fit in to a healthy diet and lifestyle, and I teach principles of Intuitive Eating. My ultimate goal is to help clients find peace with food and their bodies. My treatment philosophy is informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use a weight-inclusive approach to health and nutrition, and my focus is changing behaviors,
not numbers on the scale.
