If you are looking for a holistic approach to fueling so you can optimize energy, strength, endurance, recovery, focus, and overall well-being you are in the right place!
Athletes are uniquely vulnerable to disordered eating behaviors and body image challenges due to the pressures of sport and performance.
Additionally, diet culture has created a lot of mixed messaging around nutrition, health and wellness and this has caused a lot of anxiety, uncertainty, confusion and mistrust around food and body especially for athletes trying to fuel for performance.
I am here to help you find clarity!
i can help because i recognize
As a Sports Dietitian, I was trained to use food and nutrition to promote health, manage disease and optimize performance, but in my time practicing as a dietitian there always seemed to be something missing to truly help people transform. I realized that missing link was the mind body connection and eating psychology.
I believe in whole athlete nourishment not just fueling for performance

As a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, I am trained to provide safe, effective, evidence-based coaching and education to enhance performance for athletes at all levels. I help athletes understand how the timing, type, and quantity of food and nutrients can impact energy, strength, endurance, recovery, focus and overall well-being. I take a food first approach, but recommend supplements and sports foods as appropriate. Although we often refer to food as fuel in the athlete world, I believe its important that we still find balance and enjoyment with eating.
Dynamic Eating Psychology is an important new field originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. It’s a positive, empowering, and transformational approach that recognizes each of us has a unique, fascinating, and ever changing relationship with food. Dynamic Eating Psychology, affirms that our relationship with food has important lessons to teach us if we choose to listen. And it recognizes that our challenges with eating, weight, and health are intimately connected to other primary life dimensions – relationship, family, work, our search for meaning and fulfillment, and so much more.
Mind-Body Nutrition advances the practice of clinical nutrition by exploring the psychophysiology of how thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Originated by Marc David, Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, it goes far beyond classical nutrition by focusing on the fascinating connections between brain, body, and behavior. Simply put, what we eat is only half of the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition reveals how stress physiology, the relaxation response, breathing, awareness, pleasure, meal timing, and much more profoundly influence digestion and calorie burning. And it offers practical and results-oriented strategies for the most commonly seen eating challenges and health issues of our times.
