Nutrition Counseling

Nutrition counseling can help you reconnect to your body, needs, and personal health goals while removing the stress of dieting. Food, hunger, and body image struggles are different for everyone, and a personalized approach to find balance is key.
Intuitive eating means returning to our natural state of eating when we are hungry, finding satisfaction and joy in food, not letting food stop us from participating in life, and finding health in a personalized, non-weight centered approach.
As a HAES (Health at Every Size)-aligned practice, we believe that all bodies are worthy of respect and the care a person receives should be focused on the issue at hand, regardless of weight. Society, the media, and diet culture have taught us to believe that there is an ideal body type and that we are wrong if we don’t fit into this narrow vision, but science and our bodies prove otherwise. Your body size and shape is not the problem.
Together, we can work through body image struggles, striving to reach body acceptance, or neutrality.

How Can We Help?

Nutrition counseling and intuitive eating support with a Registered Dietitian can help you explore and improve your relationship with food and your body. It can also redefine the way you see “health,” create a more positive relationship with food and movement, and assist in navigating food choices

What is Intuitive Eating?

We were all born knowing our hunger cues. We, without question, knew when we were hungry and when we needed to eat. As we grow, and societal pressure takes a hold, many of us fall into the trap of diet culture. 

This can include:

  • Questioning when we are hungry (i.e. "but I just ate…" or “maybe I should just drink water”)

  • Thinking we are eating too much

  • Thinking that we must "earn" our food

  • Choosing the smallest, least calorie dense food option

  • Labeling food as “good” or "bad"/ "healthy" or "unhealthy"

  • Wanting to always be the smallest versions of ourselves

If you ask us, food is meant to be enjoyed, and your best self probably isn’t the one stressing about numbers or tracking each item that enters your mouth.
