About

I am a registered dietitian who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from the University of Alberta in 2019. I work one on one with clients to provide support for making healthy lifestyle changes, independent of weight loss. I believe that weight is not a good indicator of health and strive to provide evidence based information in a compassionate environment, free of judgment.
Diet culture continues to erode our self esteem and self worth by telling us weight loss is synonymous with health, reinventing unsustainable ‘food rules’ to get there, and then blaming us for our inability to maintain the unattainable. I believe this mentality is so harmful for our overall well-being.

I have personally wasted so much time, energy and money on restrictive menu plans, plans where I was counting calories, macros or points, eliminating whole food groups and starting exercise plans that left me exhausted, with little energy for anything else, hungry and worst of all, feeling shameful of my own lack of willpower; all for the sake of shrinking my body. And then I said Enough.
My mission is to support people to claim what health means to them while also saying Enough. To support them in their journey to reject diet culture, become accepting of their body, learn to move their bodies in gentle, instead of punishing ways. Our bodies need this. Our minds need this. Our souls need this.

I have found the best way to support my clients on their journeys is to meet them where they are at. Both the client and practitioner have valuable information to bring to the table and healthy lifestyle changes can only be made in collaboration.

I often have people ask me what they will get from an appointment with me, and this is a really tough question to answer. Because my sessions are driven so much by what is important to my clients, everybody gets something a bit different out of our time together. That being said, all of my clients have access to a safe space to talk about what is important to them, free of judgment. They also leave my office with realistic and sustainable goals, complete with an action plan and any resources required to achieve them, as well as the accountability some find helps to give that little push they need to implement lasting change.
