Chronic Conditions

Managing Chronic Conditions

Are you interested in addressing your chronic condition without a focus on food restriction or weight loss? Want to focus on sustainable behavior changes that feel additive, joyful, and address your health concerns?

If so, I can help you with any of the following conditions:

  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Pre-diabetes
  • Diabetes (not on mealtime insulin)
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Healthful eating without food restriction

How a Health at Every Size dietitian is different

Health can be improved without a focus on weight. As a registered dietitian nutritionist who practices through the weight-neutral lens of Health at Every Size, I can help you work toward your health goals in ways that are not restrictive. 

This means I do not provide rigid meal plans, food rules, or guidance on weight loss. 

Instead, I help guide you towards an eating pattern that is flexible and sustainable for you. 

This also means I will never judge you for your current or past eating habits, nor do I judge you if you desire weight loss.

Instead, we talk about what has felt hard about eating and being in your body, and how you can feel better around food and your body in the long-term.

A whole-person, client-centered approach

Together we will explore what health and healthy mean to you, and how any dietary changes may impact your relationship to food and your body.

We will also discuss the following aspects of physical and mental health and better understand where you may want to make changes:

  • Establishing regular eating patterns with all the food groups
  • Eating foods that feel satisfying and nourishing
  • Including your favorite fun foods, such as sweets or chips
  • Challenging food rules to help reduce guilt or shame around eating
  • Managing stress and sleep
  • Coping with challenging body image days
  • Engaging in joyful movement that connects you to your body

By working together, you will become the expert and authority in your own health and eating---you will become your own Eathority.

During the first session, we will discuss your eating history, how you feel about food and your body and any other relevant information you feel comfortable discussing. Depending on what your concerns are in session, you decide what manageable goals you want to set for the following session.

In follow-up sessions, we will begin any nutrition education you are interested in learning and how you can incorporate small changes into your life. We will also discuss any successes or challenges since the previous meeting or any topic that feels pressing to you that day.
