You’re probably wanting to feel better about yourself, what you eat, and your health. We work together to explore how you can find peace with food and your weight. We discuss new ways of thinking about nourishing your body that are sustainable and pleasurable and healthier for you - physically, intellectually and emotionally.

What is Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)?

MNT is a specific application of Nutrition Care Process (systematic method of providing high-quality nutritional care) which includes an evidenced-based approach to nutritionally manage diseases and is provided by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). MNT involves in-depth individualized nutrition assessment. Assessment along with diagnosis, interventions, monitoring and evaluation are based on the best available current knowledge and evidence as well as patient provided information and medical record data such as labs, medical history, prescriptions, etc.

What is Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition counseling is a supportive, two-way interaction between the client and the counselor to set priorities, identify individual needs, establish realistic goals, and create practical, individualized action plans which acknowledge and foster responsibility for self-care.

What is Intuitive Eating?

● Eating based on your body’s inner wisdom - physical, intellectual, and emotional
● Respecting the body you’re in
● Eschewing diet culture

Intuitive Eating is about listening to your body’s hunger cues and allowing yourself to eat foods you want to eat and that you find satisfying. Intuitive Eating is about letting go of food rules, not following diets or meal plans and not counting points. It is not, healthy eating as a “lifestyle” or “watching” what you eat. And, it is not about the amount of will power or discipline you have around food. Intuitive eating is re-learning to trust yourself and your body with food, like the way you did when you were child, before diet culture* affected you.

Intuitive Eating is an evidenced-based model supported by strong research.

* Diet Culture is all around us, every day, all day coming from our friends, family and health care providers, from movies, social media and advertising, from governmental healthcare initiatives, and more. Diet culture makes us think we should only be eating“healthy” foods and eliminating certain foods, even whole food groups, following strict diets and eating patterns, and performing particular exercises and following rigid exercise routines. Diet culture values weight, shape, and size instead of our wellbeing and erroneously equates being the idealized weight, shape and size to being healthy. Diet culture unfairly gives privilege to those of the idealized weight, shape and size and labels those striving for the idealized weight, shape and size as morally superior. Because of diet culture if we’re not the idealized weight, shape and size we think we’re not healthy, we don’t receive the same privileges as those that are and if we’re not striving for these we think we’re not as good as those who are, all of which makes us feel bad about ourselves which is not good for our health and wellbeing. This is diet culture.

Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch are the creators of Intuitive Eating Principles and wrote the book, Intuitive Eating.

What is Health at Every Size?

“The Health At Every Size® (HAES®) approach is a continuously evolving alternative to the weight-centered approach to treating clients and patients of all sizes. It is also a movement working to promote size-acceptance, to end weight discrimination, and to lessen the cultural obsession with weight loss and thinness. The HAES® approach promotes balanced eating, life-enhancing physical activity, and respect for the diversity of body shapes and sizes.”
