I love food, as most of us do. My "go to" for something indulgent is definitely sweets - soft chocolate chip cookies or ice cream to be exact. But this wasn't always the case. During college, I began to fear almost all doos as a result of wanting to lose weight. As a lacrosse player I knew I had to eat but I began significantly restricting what I would allow myself. I became obsessed with calorie counting. If I couldn't count it, I couldn't eat it.This persistent food noise and weight loss obsession left me to isolate myself from friends and family. I began to lose the happy, fun, and out going self I used to. 
I never had an "ah ha" moment that prompted me to change. I just remember sitting on the edge of my bed one night with the 15 different outfits sprawled out around me feeling completely exhausted that I hated the way I looked in all of them. I was tired of counting calories, tired of missing out on celebrations and dinners, tired of feeling anxious and on edge all the time and especially tired of hating me. It took time but I slowly broke down the food noise in my head and repaired my relationship with myself and food. 
I went on to graduate school at Columbia University and graduated with a masters degree in nutrition and exercise physiology, learning and experiencing how to use food as physical nourishment and not emotional torture. 
I have been counseling now for over 11 years and my aim is not only to help think about what to eat but help empower those who struggle with their relationship with food to find peace and mindfulness as they work toward their goals.  I want to help you overcome your obstacles and become the best, healthiest version of yourself.

We are born natural intuitive eaters. Kids innately balance their food intake, eating when they’re hungry and stopping once they feel full. As we grow older we create rules around food and lose our inner intuitive eater. We learn that food is for celebrating, for self-soothing, and just for "something to do."
Intuitive eating is not a diet. It’s a way to learn to eat outside of the diet mentality, with a focus on using your own internal hunger, fullness, and satisfaction cues to guide eating choices. It's about thinking what foods you really like and how to appropriately have them. We look at the WHY you eat just as much as the WHAT. No rules, restrictions, and definitely no "should" and "shouldn't."
