    Immersed in diverse mental healthcare settings, I bring extensive experience to nutrition therapy for mental health

    Navigating diverse mental health settings, from in-patient acute care to residential rehab and outpatient care, I’ve gained a profound understanding not only of the science but also the art of effectively communicating the complexities of mental illness. This has empowered me to encourage meaningful behavioral changes.

    With this extensive knowledge, I’m enthusiastic about guiding and educating fellow dietitians and other healthcare providers on the intricate interplay between nutrition and mental health.

    Whether you have burning questions about the pivotal role nutrition plays in mental health, need expert support with a particular client or patient, or simply have a keen interest in exploring valuable resources for self-guided learning, I’m here for you.

    Have a specific inquiry about the intricate connections between nutrition and mental well-being? Seeking guidance on tailoring nutrition therapy for a particular individual? Or perhaps you’re eager to delve into a wealth of resources to enhance your own understanding?

    Feel free to reach out—I’m passionate about fostering knowledge exchange and supporting you on your journey toward optimal mental health through nutrition.
