Overview

I am an experienced family-care focused clinician, having provided a full range of medical and behavioural nutritional services to individuals ranging from premature newborn to the elderly for over 20 years. I have provided up-to-date and evidence-based care for medically complex patients in ICU, Surgery, Gastroenterology, Neonatology/Pediatrics, Mental Health, Eating Disorders, and Neurology Units and keep my knowledge current through a variety of continuing education avenues.
In addition to providing advanced therapeutic nutritional care including tube feeding and IV (parenteral) nutrition, I have co-authored a book (ASD: The Complete Health and Diet Guide), contributed to the Dietitians of Canada role paper on Healthy Eating for Mental Health, spoken nationally at conferences, provided meal planning to community agencies, and conducted independent medical evaluations for automobile accident claims disputes.
SPECIALTIES: Digestive disorders (i.e. IBS, Crohn's, Colitis, Celiac, Chronic Constipation, Reflux (GERD), Fatty Liver Disease and others); Eating disorders; Emotional Eating; Child and teen nutrition concerns (i.e. picky eating).  The foundation of my expertise in Eating DIsorders stems from working with teens & adults since 1998 in various provincial treatment centres, at CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health), and in private practice.
I use a non-dieting mindful approach to healthy eating, follow a Health at Every Size philosophy (www.HAEScommunity.org) and consider foundations of eating psychology to explore personal habits and eating challenges. Weight loss diet programs are not provided. Treatment plans are individualized and based on a client's detailed health assessment, goals, and needs. Food is emphasized over supplementation although natural health products may be judiciously recommended as needed.
