Food has meaning.

Everyone has a story.

What’s Yours?

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.

Are you tired of struggling to make diet and lifestyle changes?

Confused about which foods work best for YOUR body?

Or maybe you know what you “should” do, but don’t do it?

Feel you lack the “willpower” or “motivation” to stay on track?

You’re not alone. And I can help!

I’m passionate about helping people find freedom with food so they can live their best life – feeling fully alive! Yes, it’s possible to eat the foods you love, enjoy food that tastes good, AND nourish and support your body. I’m here to help you tune out all the external food “noise” – fad diets, food trends, superfoods, good/bad foods, etc and tune in to YOUR body and it’s internal wisdom. Through this process, we’ll discover the foods, movement, and mindset that will support you and help you feel your best. When you learn to listen to and trust yourself, you will be able to make lasting nutrition and lifestyle changes that will nurture and nourish both your body and soul.

About Kristin

Holistic Nutritionist

I’m a clinical nutritionist who loves nutrition science, but also cares about you, your food relationship, and how food makes you feel. When you’re looking to make nutrition changes, it’s not always just about food – which I learned on my own journey!

When it comes to digestive issues and a negative relationship with food, I’ve been there! I have a long history of digestive issues and spent many years following restrictive diets. The result? Food cravings, an obsession with food and “healthy” eating, feeling out of control around certain foods, etc. And, I still had digestive symptoms! I had lots of nutrition knowledge about what to eat, what not eat, etc but making changes became REALLY hard. What helped me? Learning about my relationship with food and how that impacts my food choices – it’s a game changer! It’s not about willpower, motivation, or nutrition knowledge – it’s about the meaning we create around food that drives our choices – and that meaning is created through the culture we live in as well as our personal food stories. And you know what else? What we think about the food we eat is just as important as the food we eat. Mindset matters!

Read more about me and my approach to nutrition below!


I believe everyone deserves to enjoy and love food in their own personal way – whether that’s pizza or a kale salad – doesn’t matter to me!  Food is meant to be enjoyed!

Food is so much more than just food – it has meaning that is deeply personal for each of us.  This relationship is often what drives our desires for specific foods.  However, we receive conflicting messages about what we should/shouldn’t eat, what diet is the best for us, etc.  This often leads to feelings of guilt and shame around eating foods we love.  It’s all so very confusing!  I’m here to help you sort out fact from fiction and figure out what foods will truly nourish both your body and soul.

My Approach

When it comes to digestive issues and a negative relationship with food, I’ve been there!  My journey started with food sensitivities, SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), and digestive symptoms.  I followed multiple restrictive diets which would help for awhile, but still didn’t offer the results I was looking for.   I eventually realized there was more to my healing than nutrition – it included looking at my lifestyle (hello stress!) AND my relationship with food – which had gotten pretty messed up with the restrictive diets. 

Initially, I thought the answer was more restriction, more focus on “healthy” foods, etc – because food is medicine, right?  Well, that’s not entirely true.  Food is one of the tools we have to help our health, but it’s not the only one.  There are so many other things that impact our health and wellbeing!  And, when it comes to food, I’ve found both for myself and clients – relaxing around food is way more helpful than restriction!

In my work with clients, we explore your individual food story, your health concerns, your goals, etc.  What you want matters!  I use intuitive and mindful eating approaches as well as looking at other aspects of your life that may be impacting your health.  We’ll work towards a more positive relationship with food and self, removing barriers and challenges that may be getting in your way.
