Message to clients
"If you are thinking about calling a dietitian to come for a visit, I would say to not be worried or scared. I’m very open, non-judgmental, fun, humorous, and very easy to talk to. I love working and I love having visits with clients. I’ve done a lot of work with college students and adolescents with eating disorders and have a lot of experience with this, so I'm ready for you!"
Mindfulness PracticesMindfulness practices include but are not limited to developing awareness, attention, and remembering. In mindfulness-informed therapy, clients develop tools to become aware of what is occurring within and around them, so they can begin to untangle from mental preoccupations and difficult emotions. Self-acceptance and compassion are also core elements of mindfulness-informed therapy.
