Return to Joyful Eating Through
Client Centered Nutrition Counseling
The people I work with often describe their relationship to food as a love-hate dynamic. Food is their most loyal companion and their greatest enemy. Add cultural food rules about what we "should be eating" and it can feel like a never ending battle where every outcome is loss. If this experience resonates with you, we can unpack what you're really fighting for and explore new ways of finding the nourishment you truly seek.
Our bodies are adaptive and change throughout our lives in effort to support our survival. Often times these changes happen without our conscious consent and many people I work with feel betrayed by their body. Returning to joyful eating often requires examining this sense of betrayal and together, we can shift the relationship with your body from saboteur to trusted ally.
Healing Outside the Box
In addition to 1:1 sessions, I offer additional support to bridge the gap between talk-therapy and experiencing shifts in real-life.

Health at Every Size (HAESTM) provider
I have had the honor of helping clients navigate their relationship to food and body in a variety of settings, from community kitchens to eating disorder recovery clinics. Like all relationships, the ones we create with our bodies and food are strongly affected by the environment in which we live. Together we can examine how different aspects of our environment, and how we engage with that, continues to serve you on your path. Work with me to navigate the external and internal messages around bodies and food on your journey back to your intuitive knowing about nourishment.

Mimosa offers a compassionate, supportive presence as well as a wealth of knowledge. I felt completely held in my struggles, and seen as my best self, even while I shared vulnerabilities. The practical advice was immediately actionable, and the concepts I learned will continue to guide me.
