Meet Dana

Hi! I am so excited to connect with you more. Here are a few things to know about who I am

Registered Dietitian

Degree, internship, board exam, and thousands of hours of work with clients in your boat! 

 

Health at Every Size (HAES) Aligned Provider

I'm not going to tell you to "just lose weight", and in fact we won't even focus on your weight. Our work will be behavior based to help you improve your relationship with food, your labs, or many other elements of your health

Certified Intuitive
Eating Counselor

There is so much misinformation about IE, but rest assured I'm a trained professional in this area 

Recipe Developer

Along with everything else, I also love creating and sharing specific food ideas and recipes. This helps to take our work a step further by providing a "how" to my recommendations

My Story

I struggled with my own food issues before recognizing I wanted to live differently and find a way out of it. Like many others, growing up in a culture that glorifies disordered eating habits and a certain "ideal" body had an impact on me. Pairing that with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (and subsequent body changes once my body was able to use nutrients properly again), I felt lost . We can't thrive when we are constantly thinking about food and wanting to change our body.

Eventually I realized that I wanted a more fulfilling life for myself. It took a lot of small (and sometimes big) leaps of trust to heal my relationship with food, be consistently compassionate with myself, and leave restrictive eating behind. I know how common it is to have struggled with similar issues, which is why I've made it my mission to help others facing obstacles in overcoming diet culture.

I want you to know that though I recognize similarities in the struggles that I and my past and present clients have faced, everyone has a different story. I know that what worked for me may not work for you. I also know that we've all had different life experiences. And I am here to hear your unique and important story!

My Approach

Each person is different which means my signature style of nutrition counseling is to cater to the needs of the individual

Patient Centered Care

You are the expert of you! I will always take that into account when giving you my clear recommendations

Personalized Guidance

I will meet you wherever you are in your nutrition and food freedom journey and start from there. And if I suggest something that won't work for you, no worries! We'll troubleshoot until we find a good solution. 

Empowering Progress

We'll break your larger goals into small, attainable ones each time we meet. This enables clients to build confidence as they progress!
