Nutrition Counseling in Austin TX

The dietitians at Austin Counseling and Nutrition are all Intuitive Eating aligned. The ultimate eating goal for all of our clients is to be attuned to the natural cues of their bodies.

While most people assume they know all about "healthy eating", most of them are terribly misled by the barrage of misinformation on the internet and in the media. As dietitians, we help people break free of the messages and understand the actual biology of eating. 

Legalizing food is an important step in feeling peace with food. Realizing that all foods have nutritional benefit can improve the ability to attune to actual needs (rather than the needs made up in the brain--the wrong organ to listen to regarding eating).

What does a dietitian do?

eating disorder nutritional counseling austin tx
  • Helps you stop feeling guilty about everything you eat.

  • Helps you attune to your body's natural cues to determine when, what, and how much to eat.

  • Helps you better understand natural body size diversity, and that the BMI scale is total BS.

  • Helps you navigate exercise--whether it is appropriate for you, and setting reasonable limits. 

  • Are you a foodie who feels guilty about how much you enjoy food and eating?

  • Do you feel like you have a good idea about nutrition basics but for some reason you never feel like you can "get it right"?

  • Have you heard about intuitive eating but are scared about what food freedom might look for you?

 

 

I’ve been there. I was once both scared by my eating behavior and terrified to stop. I had friends and family reassure me my eating behavior was normal when it was anything but.

 

I got my Masters in Nutrition from San Diego State University and completed my dietetic internship through Utah State University all so I could provide the same support and guidance the dietitian I saw gave me.

 

I work from a non-diet, weight neutral approach which helps tune in to your own body's internal cues for hunger and fullness, restores body trust, and allows you to enjoy food without shame or guilt. I like to think of this approach as a daily practice of eating intuitively and practicing attuned self-care.

 

My approach shifts the perspective from fighting your body to nourishing it with a knowledge that all foods can provide both pleasure and nutrition. I hope I can create a space where we can work together to help you find pleasure and peace around food again.
