About Monica

Monica has been a California-based Registered Dietitian for the past 14 years.   She has counseled hundreds of clients with eating disorders.  She has also provided meal planning and education for  those with acute illnesses and for those interested in  disease prevention and management.  

Monica has earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Nutrition and Food Science from California State University, Northridge.  She lives in Ojai, California and provides Medical Nutrition Therapy, nutrition education and counseling for individuals and families within Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

In addition to seeing clients in her office, Monica has worked with several clients throughout the United States who have eating disorders, using a non-diet counseling approach. Her online nutrition sessions have made it helpful for those with transportation issues and lack of proximity to a dietitian experienced with eating disorders.

She has worked in a variety of settings such as hospitals, outpatient clinics,  eating disorder treatment centers, in home health care, as a personal trainer and has even planned and prepared meals for professional athletes.
