Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and Anti-Diet Nutritionist
Have you ever met someone, heard the way they explain something and want the whole world to learn from them?
That's how it feels when you listen to Michelle speak and teach her clients about intuitive eating and anti-diet nutrition. It is refreshing, necessary and has been life changing for our clients so far.
Michelle joined us in November of 2021 and has been working with us virtually ever since. She offers a very unique and specialized approach to nutrition and your relationship with food through various modalities. This includes groups, podcasts, workshops and movement opportunities in our community.
Michelle (she/her) is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and Anti-Diet Nutritionist (CNP) who is passionate about rewriting the script around food and wellness. She works from an anti-diet, Health at Every Size (HAES) and weight-neutral lens.
With a background in Nutrition that stemmed from a desire to learn more about her own diagnosis of IBD, Michelle found that the way we talked about food is often inaccessible, rooted in anti-fat bias, and can encourage long-term disordered eating patterns. Because of this, Michelle works to change the fear-based narrative through approaching food from a more inclusive and empowered approach by leading with compassion to meet you where you are at.
After graduating from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition with highest honours, Michelle studied directly with Evelyn Tribole to become certified in Intuitive Eating Counselling which is the main focus of her practice. She specializes in helping folks with disordered eating, chronic dieting, body image concerns, making peace with food, emotional eating and learning to become more in tune with their hunger and fullness signals.
Attending one of Michelle's groups will mean diving into the principles of Intuitive Eating as they relate to your life, so you can challenge the ingrained beliefs around food and your body in a supportive and manageable way. And the truth is: once you start making peace with food, you’ll see the immense ripple effects it has throughout the rest of your life, because it’s never *just* about food.
Michelle is ready to hold space for you around the things that come up in the process. Doing this in a group setting is magical. Check our our programs for more info.
