WORK WITH ME
WHOLE HEARTED COMMITMENT
I work from a values approach. I will provide an honest, caring, transparent and supportive therapeutic environment.
Honesty is a core value of mine. I want to create honest relationships with my clients and the teams I work with.
I practice evidence based dietetics. I continue to do professional development to provide the best care for everyone I work with, according to international best practice.
I will work alongside you when you get stuck. It takes a team, and I am on your side.
Creating an open environment where you can express where you are at is important in creating a therapeutic relationship
DIET FREE ZONE
I will never endorse any fad diets. I am a proud non-diet dietitian.

I continue to up-skill and learn about the latest evidenced based treatments to help you recover from your eating disorder.
My job as an eating disorder dietitian is to provide you with psycho-education, nutritional knowledge, family based treatment, individual therapy- (NOTE not trauma, only food and body image related therapy) to guide the rest of the team with providing guidelines for exercise, and medical monitoring. I have extensive knowledge about the pathophysiology of eating disorders from a neurological perspective. Working on nourishing the brain back to health to set you up for full recovery is my number one goal.
