At Bodacious Nutrition, Joanna believes food shouldn’t cause anxiety, confusion, or stress- it should be a source of joy and nourishment!

Joanna is an empathetic food relationship first, holistic dietitian and Intuitive Eating Counselor who partners with clients to heal the food relationship and develop a positive sense of embodiment while also working toward individual health goals related to healthy aging, women’s health (PCOS, perimenopause and menopause, fertility), metabolic concerns (insulin resistance, weight concerns, diabetes), and GI health.

She is also an experienced eating disorder dietitian with a special focus on eating disorders in midlife and beyond. She practices through a Health At Every Size®-aligned and weight inclusive lens which respects body diversity and doesn’t believe weight is a good health indicator. She won’t ever recommend restriction!

She offers person-centered, individualized one on one virtual nutrition sessions using a gentle nutrition lens that honors a client’s values, food relationship, and overall health goals. She believes it is possible to heal the relationship with food while working toward greater overall health that is aligned with client values.

She also offers an evidence-based, self-paced online nutrition course for women over 35 (Optimize 35+) with a group call support component that supports food peace, hormone balance, increased energy, and healthy aging.
