Brenna received her bachelor’s of science degree in Human Nutrition and Foods from the University of Houston, where she also completed her dietetic internship. While at UH, she was the Vice President of the Student Nutrition Association and spearheaded a nutrition education program based on Intuitive Eating principles.
She has experience working at a residential eating disorder treatment center. While there, she led meal support and group psychoeducation for adolescents. Brenna specializes in eating disorders, disordered eating, anti-diet approaches to health, and is the only dietitian in Houston specializing in interstitial cystitis. She particularly enjoys facilitating experiential treatment for clients with ARFID. She also has a passion for working with middle-age and older clientele who may be experiencing a relapse, or just discovering their disordered eating patterns.
When she's not working, she loves spending time in with animals. She volunteers at several rescues and rehabs in the Houston area. She has three rescued fur babies- a blue eyed boy and curly tailed girl dogs, and a hamster!

Brenna believes in meeting you where you are, and that growth is a joint project. While this journey is yours, it is does not have to be taken alone.
