My mission is to help my clients end the obsession with food, exercise, and their body and finally free up their mental space to focus on what truly matters to them. I provide virtual nutrition counseling for individuals struggling with disordered eating, unhealthy relationships with exercise, and body image concerns. I utilize principles of intuitive eating to help you learn how to take care of your body through food and movement without obsession. I work with individuals of all backgrounds, but for those who desire, I can also incorporate biblical scripture and Christian principles into the counseling experience.
