Profile
“I aim to help clients achieve freedom from eating disorders by taking an empowering, collaborative, and humanized approach that allows them to reconnect with their authentic soul-self.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I attended the Culinary Institute of America where I received my bachelor’s degree in culinary arts and hospitality management. Through my experience in hospitality, I discovered my strengths in problem-solving and the joy of interacting with people. This rerouted my life path toward the field of mental health. After attending Fordham University and graduating with a master’s degree in social work, I went on to follow my passion for supporting the eating disorder population through my role as a recovery coach in an outpatient meal support setting. I remain an active advocate for raising awareness around the need for eating disorder treatment in communities. I am a recurring speaker for Delta Phi Epsilon during ANAD week on multiple campuses on the East Coast as well as an active member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. I am currently working toward my goal of becoming a certified eating disorder specialist.
What should someone know about working with you?

I believe that, in order to live a fuller life, one cannot focus on what they wish to restrict or lessen; rather, they must focus on what they have to gain in this world.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in continuing education regularly, whether that be through webinars or educational reading to keep myself inspired. I am always striving to learn more about the field through research, collaboration, and the experiences of my colleagues.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am extremely inspired by all the advocacy happening in our world of mental health. Specifically, I am excited about the evolution of eating disorder psychoeducation taking place day-by-day. Though we have a long way to go, we are far from where we began.
