Practice philosophy

I use a responsive, family-centered, trust-based approach to feeding therapy. A child should lead the learning process and trust that adults will offer appropriate experiences to support him or her along the way. My treatment approach includes a strong focus not only on building a child’s skills, but on empowering parents and caregivers with knowledge. I believe judgment has no place in this process. My mission is to help families fill mealtimes with joy, connection, and nourishment.

My journey as a feeding therapist began back in 1989 when I worked at La Rabida Children's Hospital in Chicago. Aside from my work with the medically complex in-patient population there I also was involved in the start of the Failure to Thrive Outpatient Clinic which incorporated nutrition and family dynamics. My philosophy has changed over time but has always included a whole child and family approach and has always incorporated what we now call a "responsive feeding" approach/component.
