I am driven by the hope that I can help
you transform your life for better!

At The Gut Loving Dietitian, I witness the transformative power that a happy gut brings.

 

I am excited to help you integrate healthy dietary habits into your lifestyle so you can function at your best!

I am convinced that there is no cookie cutter approach when it comes to nutrition, and this foundational belief informs and guides the way I support my clients.

 

We will explore daily and weekly food intake, patterns of eating, cravings and emotional eating, emotional stressors, exercise habits as well as medical history and personal goals. 

It brings me so much joy to see my clients learn how to gain control of their symptoms and enjoy food again. 

 

I would love to help you!

A Unique Philosophy

At “Gut Loving Dietitian”, the "Biopsychosocial Model" (BPS) is used to evaluate my clients. BPS posits that biological, psychological (thoughts, emotions, and behaviors), and social factors all play a role in human development and functioning.

Using this detailed and thorough evaluation process, together, we will seek to uncover any biological factors that are contributing to your problems such as health status, medications used, genetic predispositions, alcohol and drug use, nutrition, and exercise patterns. We analyze social and environmental forces such as work-related stressors, and family conflict.

We will blend evidence-based guidance with a strong knowledge of supplementation and whole-food-based preparation to help make results achievable. 

Through comprehensive and individualized consultations, you will receive a personalized diet plan that is designed to help you reach and maintain your health goals.
