Feeding Therapy

“Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food.”

Make family mealtimes enjoyable again.

A child with feeding issues can disrupt the whole family’s mealtime. Preparing special meals, constantly worrying if your child is eating enough, or concern they are not getting the right nutrients can take a toll on parents and caregivers. I use a family-centered and child-led approach to teach you how to get your child back on track, and how to enjoy family meals again. Whether your child is just a “picky eater”, or has a diagnosed feeding disorder, I am here to help.

Experience where it matters.

I have almost 20 years of clinical experience, treating infants through teens, and worked with children with common and uncommon problems such as food allergies/sensitivities, autism, EOE, reflux, genetic syndromes, and feeding tubes. It all starts with a comprehensive evaluation to determine why your child is having difficulties eating. We will then design a treatment plan based on current research and best-practice recommendations. I follow a child-led approach, to make sure your child enjoys eating, and is making progress at their own pace.

“We worked with Dr. Beth early in our son’s Autism diagnosis. His sensory issues created many limits in his diet. Thanks to Beth  and her creativity and dedication our son has expanded his diet. No longer are we limited to noodles, chicken nuggets and green apples. At 14 years-old he eats non stop like many other teenage boys.”
