Nice to meet you. I am currently president of VFED, which is dear to my heart- experienced professionals working together to treat disordered eating in Los Angeles.
Following a career as a Clinical Dietitian and my own transformational experience in psychotherapy in the 80’s, I returned to school to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist as well. Disordered Eating and painful Body Image experiences require both guidance in meal planning as well as an understanding of underlying issues. And because a team is best for treatment, I often coordinate treatment with physicians and other wonderful Dietitians and Therapists in our community. I work within the Health at Every Size (HASE) model and teach Intuitive Eating to my clients.
I have specialty training in Grief Counseling and I find this often to be a significant piece of the puzzle. I also treat anxiety and depression when it is unrelated to eating problems.
I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, and families to demystify Eating Disorders. While healing the relationship with the body, to translate symptoms into meaning that can be addressed more directly. Recovery is always always possible with enough support and a little hope.
In my spare time, I enjoy Yoga, LA’s year-round Farmers Markets, and the most elegant of creatures….Cats.
