Hi, I'm Courtney
As someone who specializes in Intuitive Eating nutrition counseling and body acceptance work, I am passionate about helping others break free from diet culture, disordered eating habits and the active pursuit of weight loss.
I believe this work is important because I know firsthand how much disordered eating can consume your life.
My goal for clients is for them to learn more about their own relationship with food and their body. Then, we can work together toward creating habits around nourishment from food instead of restriction.
I believe that being able to stop dieting is possible
I believe that you can accept your here & now body
I believe that you deserve to have a dietitian who is compassionate
My Intuitive Eating counseling framework
10 PRINCIPLES OF INTUITIVE EATING
During our work together, when you are in an appropriate stage of recovery, we will find ways to incorporate these 10 principles into your life.
There is no particular order, but we will cover them all throughout our time together.
HEALTH AT EVERY SIZE
Health at Every Size focuses on the fact that true health is based on social, economic and environmental factors. This also means that as an eating disorder dietitian, I believe that eating disorders come in ALL shapes and ALL sizes. I believe that what is more important is whether you are having or acting on disordered thoughts around food and your body.
EMPATHY & COMPASSION
My approach as an eating disorder dietitian is also based in my values, with the top 2 being empathy and compassion. I will meet you wherever you are in this journey and help you to move forward at your own pace and readiness. I won't judge you or push you beyond what you are ready to do (as long as you are medically stable & doing the work with me).
We will work together to help you 're-learn' how to recognize your hunger & fullness cues, how to let go of dieting for good and feel better without actively pursuing weight loss.
Here's what is included
One-on-one, personalized Intuitive Eating nutrition counseling sessions with me on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
Support in between sessions via the chat feature in the HIPAA compliant software.
Assistance with customized meal plans and ideas that are 100% flexible and easy to use.
Access to my private Facebook group, body acceptance journal prompts and activities, Intuitive Eating worksheets, Practice Better app for scheduling, payments, chat support and the food and mood journal.

Before our first session, you will fill out forms in Practice Better. This will include an intake questionnaire that includes questions about your history with food, dieting, your body and your medical history.
virtual session. During this time, we will review your relationship with food and body image, food preferences, health concerns, etc. We will then discuss your overall goals and work together to make a plan tailored to your needs.
