Food is fuel. Food is health, culture, individuality, comfort, tradition, and celebration. Food is powerful.
Nutritional needs are highly individual and can be complex.
Functional Medicine Nutrition will support you from the inside out, addressing the root cause of underlying imbalances to bring you back to a vibrant state of health. This is a nutrition program just for you.
I am currently accepting nutrition clients as a part of a 1,000 hour clinical supervision program as a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) candidate.
Together, we will work to optimize your health through food and lifestyle. With a functional medicine approach, we explore the root cause of disease and symptom presentation. We work to correct imbalances within the body to uncover a natural state of vibrancy and health.
"It's all about the food, but it's not at all about the food." This phrase will make more sense the more we work together. Foods, ingredients, and various supplements will be explored in order to feed your body well and support your individual physiology. You'll also find that mindset, your relationship with food, and the physical and social environment in which you eat and live plays a critical role in one's nutritional and health status.
Weight Neutral Practice:
My nutrition practice may be different from what you have experienced in the past. I take a weight-neutral approach to health and nutrition and I welcome all body types. While weight loss can be a goal, during our time working together we will shift focus away from weight loss and towards establishing healthy food behaviors to support your well-being and your individual nutritional needs. Weight loss does not define your success in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
I will help you escape the diet-centric mindset that is engrained in our culture, and help you find peace with food, your body, and health practices. Rest assured, you won't find any strict meal plans or calorie/macro counting here.
Food is fun - let's keep it that way.
