Michal hertz nutrition
Specializing in eating disorders, emotional eating, and Weight Management
I am a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Clinical Psychology providing specialized treatment to those with Eating Disorders, Emotional Eating, Orthorexia and Weight Management. My philosophy when it comes to treatment is learning to balance all different types of food into ones diet without feelings of anxiety or guilt and with control and mindfulness. Creating a non-judgemental, comforting and honest environment is of the upmost importance.
My Masters in Clinical Psychology also allows for me to take a more therapeutic approach to nutrition and focus on the behaviors and emotional aspects that have shaped our relationship with food.
Working in the private practice setting over the past several years has allowed me to tailor and personalize each clients treatment needs. I often collaborate with other healthcare professionals such as psychotherapists and physicians.
I graduated with high honors from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor of Science and received my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University Teachers College. I completed my didactic program in dietetics at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Education and my internship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Centers.
