Dartmouth, Nova Scotia


Hi there, I’m Terri (she/her)! I am a Registered Dietitian (RD) and neurodivergent ADHD(c)er who is passionate about normalizing the conversation around mental health.

I am based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, however, I serve communities across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick through my virtual private practice, The Daily Grind Nutrition.

​At The Daily Grind Nutrition, I use a person-centered and strengths-focused approach to nutrition counseling through a weight-neutral and neurodiversity-affirming lens. I support neurodivergent-identifying adults who are ready to conquer their feeding challenges and nourish their body and mind so they can thrive in their ‘daily grind‘ with confidence.

As an ADHDer myself and a professional practicing in the mental health space, I am intimately aware of the feeding challenges and differences that exist amongst those who have poor mental health and/or identify as neurodivergent. I also recognize that the needs of neurodivergent individuals are sometimes different from those that identify as neurotypical.

I aim to provide care that is informed by the unique needs and lived experiences of each person and support clients in navigating how their feeding differences and challenges relate to their experience with food and eating.

I can provide support with: 

  • Understanding how your unique needs and lived experiences relate to your relationship with food.
  • Healing and nurturing your relationship with food and your body.
  • Acknowledging and harnessing values and strengths to address feeding challenges and differences.
  • Creating strategies for meal planning, shopping, and preparation that align with your lifestyle, preferences, and needs.
  • Developing an eating routine and utilizing visual/auditory cues to limit skipped or missed meals.
  • Modifying eating environments to support feeding needs.
  • Identifying foods, dietary patterns, and lifestyle behaviors that improve mental well-being.
  • Mitigating nutrition-related side effects of medications, food aversions, and harmful eating behaviors.
