get to know

Emily is a weight management expert with over a decade of experience. She received her doctorate and masters degrees from Columbia University. Emily has worked as a nurse practitioner and clinical professor at top New York and Texas institutions, including New York Presbyterian-Columbia, NYU Langone and Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. She is excited to bring her knowledge and experience to you in a more holistic approach. Dr. Doctor will prescribe Western medications when necessary, but her emphasis is always on nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, stress management and mindfulness.

Dr. Doctor has first hand knowledge of weight gain herself. After graduating from Villanova, she worked at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center in Houston. While she loved the fast paced environment, her body did not. After seeking help from her conventional primary care doctor, she was quickly put on medication which exacerbated her health concerns and caused further weight gain. She sought other medical opinions but realized she needed to have a better understanding of her own unique body and that one size fits all medicine was not the answer. 



After seeking out help from her conventional primary care doctor, she was quickly put on medication that caused more weight gain. She sought other medical opinions but she quickly realized she needed to have a better understanding of her own unique body and that one size fits all medicine was not the answer.

This was when she recognized the undeniable connection between the mind, body and gut. She spent thousands of hours reading and researching until she found the foods, exercises and mental health programs that worked best for her. 

During this experience, she recognized the lack of attention and time that weight management gets in the medical profession. Patients are told to lose weight and to be a certain BMI (not the case!) but rarely do medical providers create a personalized program tailored to their patient's unique body and lifestyle. Emily wanted to leverage her personal experience and medical knowledge to help others to prevent further medical concerns like diabetes, heart disease, infertility, joint replacement surgery and cancer.  

Dr. Doctor's education and experience have equipped her with extensive knowledge in weight management, health optimization, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and mental health to get to the root cause of weight gain. It is her great privilege to partner with her clients to help them navigate their own unique journey to look and feel their best. . 

I want to help you look and feel your best while developing healthy, intuitive habits, improving your relationship with food and strengthening your mind-body connection.

Our photos tell stories. But not scary ghost stories. I mean, like, the stories that dreams are made of. Like when the good guys triumph, and the bad guys get caught, and the slightly-nerdy guy captures the heart of the beautiful girl.
