It has been an amazing journey to here and I have no doubt it gets better as we get acquainted.
A Little About Me
I am a registered dietitian, behavioral health specialist, personal coach and pilates apparatus instructor seeing clients in-person in NYC and nationwide, via video appointment.
I began my professional life at the age of 18, pursuing a career in what I committed my youth to – classical ballet. I danced through most of my 2os, becoming certified to teach Pilates Apparatus in 2007, to support my transition out of the dance world. Both ballet and Pilates taught me a keen understanding of anatomy and physiology and movement. I awakened a reverence for my own body and it’s capabilities and, with this ability to teach such powerful and health-promoting exercise, I had tools and language to guide people of all ages and abilities to heal and learn their physical bodies.
Pilates supported me through graduate school and, some of my clients have been with me for a whopping 16 years now!
I graduated from NYU with a Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition in 2013. I think I went to school to become a dietitian because it just seemed right. I am not sure, really. I didn’t appreciate the methods of in-patient medical nutrition therapy as it lacked the person-centered approach I believe nourishment requires. During my studies, I saw a need for supporting people learning why it is important to take care of themselves and relating to themselves with confidence and compassion, over the need to educate how.
I have always been a passionate, dedicated and disciplined person. I put everything into learning what I saw was the next step to being what I needed to be to provide what I provide. I got trained in functional nutrition, dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and mind-body practices and incorporate them into behavioral health coaching for my clients. My method ensures clients are not only given information and education, but, are primed and coached to implement the changes that are needed.
I encourage incremental shifts utilizing 4 pillars of focus: self-knowledge, self-care, self-trust & self-respect to create balanced, feasible plans that are tailored to suit each client, individually.
My clients tend to be C-Suite executive and/or have entrepreneurial/performance-based career. They come with the understanding that health, longevity and high level, long-term performance require balance. This is what we create together.

How I Can Guide You
Through one-on-one coaching, I support your healing and growth. You choose your area of focus and we build from there. We use a collection of tools and techniques to encourage awareness, healing, growth and success.
I have spent the past two decades as a student of all aspects of what it is to be well through academia, personal development work, spiritual practices and therapeutic modalities.
I have developed a deep understanding of self-care and bring all of that education, practice and experience to my coaching…
I have found that, beyond basic care, you have to find purpose in yourself, practice gratitude for who you are and connect deeply to your innate energy/qualities to be able to live a balanced, successful life in the current world. My method is a proverbial “harvest” of all of these techniques, tools and modalities.
I use a special language that I call Project: Love, Me. It is 26 topics and tools that support you shifting your focus away from the external to the internal – what you need for you.
