Getting started can be intimidating. I get it !
You're maybe hoping that your food and body image problems will dissipate naturally or get better with time. Inversely, previous personnal attempts have dived you deeper in a cycle of control and overwhelm where feelings of hopelessness keep creeping up.
Fortunately, seeking help can remove the stress out of figuring everything out alone. Nutrition therapy puts you in the driver seat while creating a safe space of open dialogue and ongoing support to allow you to take place in the process of change.
During our initial session, we will do a full assessment to get to know you better. Depending on your comfort level, we will revisit your past medical history, your past and present relationship with food & body, and so much more.
Together, we will evaluate your needs, determine your short-term and long-term goals and discuss your hopes and expectations of treatment.

Follow-up sessions are truly where most of the work takes place. Together, we will thoroughly explore your relationship with food and body by unpacking difficult challenges and fears, We deconstruct food and body shame, while bulding a structure necessary to increase flexibility and variety as you learn to connect to your body's hunger and satiety cues.
You will be supported through the inevitable ups and downs as you navigate challenges on your healing journey.
• Peer support & coaching available
• Individual meal support available online
I believe a collaborative approach can be very helpful for some of my clients, especially for those suffering with eating disorders or those with complex needs.
I will gladly help establish or work with a treatment team (therapist, physician, dietitian, psychiatrist, etc.) when I deem it's beneficial for the client.
If you wish to collaborate with me or ask me any questions about my practice, please contact me so we can chat.
Looking forward to meeting you !
You don't need to have an eating disorder or a diagnosis to seek help from a nutritionnist to improve your relationship with food and body. As explained here, you can fall on a spectrum where navigating food is complicated and overwhelming. Food preoccupations are difficult to manage and significantly impact other areas of your life. A nutritionnist can bring structure and flexibility to your diet so you have more space to do the things you love.
My practice is weight-neutral, which means I promote a healthy weight for each individual based on their natural set-point.
Reaching a target weight range can sometimes be a goal for nutrition therapy IF it is meant to improve your health, but it is not always a priority.
In most eating disorder cases, monitoring weight is done on a regular basis.
