We are on a mission to
What if changing the way we relate to food and our bodies could not only contribute to greater individual well-being and quality of life, but also to
liberation for all?
Let’s try a little thought experiment:
What image comes to your mind when you think of the word “healthy”?
What about an image of a person who is “healthy”?
What if those images are rooted in a mindset you’ve been conditioned into, and one that is not big enough for your worth or your purpose?
We believe that true health is rooted in body liberation, and it is through this lens that we approach nutrition counseling and all of our work.
When we are all free to exist exactly as we are without stigma, discrimination or oppression, we have the freedom to pursue health in ways that are joyful and personally meaningful. Unfortunately, we also recognize how inaccessible this vision currently is for many folks living in marginalized bodies, and we are committed to being a part of the revolution.
Body liberation is not just about learning to love your curves or your stretch marks. (Though we are very much here for that, too!)
True body liberation requires the recognition - in both idea and practice - that:
Black lives matter.
Trans rights are human rights.
Fat bodies are good bodies.
All bodies are valuable.
All bodies deserve respect.
what we help with
People seek nutrition therapy for a variety of reasons.
Here are just a handful of things we often hear from our clients:
“I have so much anxiety about food.”
“I’m terrified of gaining weight.”
“I want to eat plant-based and not feel restricted.”
“I’m scared to eat oil. Isn’t it bad?”
“I feel so disconnected from my body.”
“I don’t know how to listen to or trust my body.”
“I don’t want to use food as a coping mechanism anymore.”
“I’m so sick of dieting.”
“I can’t keep sugar in the house.”
“I want peace with food and exercise.”
We take a gentle approach with nutrition, supporting our clients in learning how to nourish themselves with both intention and freedom, and to enjoy the pleasure food is meant to provide — all while deepening their self-compassion through the process.

learn More About
When we’re seeking out our own services or potential collaborations, we always want to know more about the people and values behind the business. There are a lot of dietitians to choose from, and we’ll be the first to say that we aren’t necessarily a good fit for everyone.
As healthcare professionals, we get frustrated when we hear from our clients that they’ve been told by their doctor, a previous dietitian, or another medical provider that they “just need to lose weight” and their health issues will all go away — or that their BMI, an inherently racist tool and an invalid indicator of health, means they are going to get certain diseases.
We acknowledge that social determinants of health are a reality and that individual behaviors alone are not responsible for someone’s health status. We are committed to systemic change and support our clients in advocating for inclusive healthcare.
We stand against oppression in all forms, including:
We understand that high-quality healthcare is not accessible for everyone (as it should be). We maintain a limited number of spots at a discounted rate for clients who cannot afford our full rates or use their insurance.
We also offer the Anti-Diet Vegan Nutrition Online Course, which has a variety of pricing options, including a scholarship option.
