Hi there! I’m Allyson, a registered dietitian nutritionist who practices a non-diet, weight-inclusive approach to health and nutrition.
What does that mean exactly? My practice is founded on the science that our body’s shape and size doesn’t determine health. Health is multifaceted and complex and food is just one part of the equation. Food should be simple, nourishing, and should bring joy.
In a culture that obsesses over weight, food, and the newest diet craze, it can be easy to lose sight of that joy. Eating has been taken over by scales, counting calories and macros, and is filled with guilt and shame. That’s why I am fiercely passionate about helping others let go of these ideals, restrictions, and food rules so that they can rediscover peace with food and their body.
Through my practice, my goal is to cultivate positive habit change and joyous eating experiences. I help others discover the simplicity of food and eating that promotes their own well-being. Through empowerment and support I help my clients overcome barriers and create a healthy relationship with food so they can live their joyful life with intention.
