About My Clients

In nutrition counseling, I focus on the whole person - not just the food/nutrition piece. I help clients learn to give themselves permission to eat (also the title of my book) enjoyable foods - not just what they "should" eat/not eat (All foods are ok), while making sure the client moves forward comfortably and sustainably. I work with people from all walks of life, religion, race, gender, and sexual orientation, focusing on compassion and evidence-based science.

My Background and Approach

My philosophy is that keeping in contact helps clients stay accountable between sessions, and helps to prevent relapse. I allow on-going clients to contact me between sessions with questions or for support surrounding eating and body image concerns. In addition to nutrition education (HAES approach), I use CBT and motivational interviewing techniques to promote behavior change, giving you better coping skills to replace your eating disorder. Starting in January 2020, Not Your Average Nutritionist became a group practice with other Dietitians on-board to help more clients! We have several Registered Dietitians working with eating disorders and sports nutrition. Contact our office to be set up with the best fit for you! As of February 2022, we work with clients located in the following states: CA, NY, CT, MA, MI, VT, PA, WV, VA, IN, WI, WA, ID, WY, UT, ‚ÄčOK, TX, CO, AZ, AK, HI, FL. See "What To Expect In Nutrition Counseling" on my blog for more info.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I focus on "Health At Every Size" and Intuitive Eating. Having personally recovered from disordered eating, I understand how frustrating it can be to be around food. I want to help you more into freedom from obsessing about food, so you can get on with more important things! I am a Jew, and active in the theatre arts. You can find my performer health work at:
