My name is Emily (she/her) and I'm a non-diet, weight-inclusive registered dietitian. I love helping people reframe their mindset around food and health so they can live a life free of dieting and full of their true values! I take a compassionate and collaborative approach to working with someone and really listen to what my client is telling me.
I've learned through counseling clients that dieting to lose weight just doesn't work. There is so much guilt, shame and blame that comes with the dieting mindset. I never want to put that on someone. I've always loved food and having the passion of sharing food with others led me to become a dietitian. My own journey with food has had it's ups and downs, but when I discovered Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size®, everything finally clicked for me!
I'm a spoonie and can say that having a chronic illness definitely impacts my perspective on health, nutrition, mental health and more. Spoon Theory and Intuitive Eating go hand in hand in taking care of myself and it's what I also love to help my clients with. Listening to our bodies does not always come easy. It's not really about perfection. It's about getting connected with yourself, building trust with yourself and trying to honor your needs when you can.
When I'm not working, I love to cook, hike outdoors, listen to music and podcasts, and try new restaurants. Spoiling my cat, Penny, is also a hobby of mine. Reach out to email@example.com to connect!
