Hi! My name is Alicia, a registered dietitian that believes food is not the enemy, the scale doesn’t hold our worth, and we aren’t good or bad by what we eat.
As a dietitian, it is often assumed that I have never experienced weight or food struggles, but the reality is I have had my own journey with many struggles that started at a young age and magnified in college. I have been the girl who tried the fad diets, yo-yo-ing up and down, feeling guilty about breaking food rules, and anxious over missed workouts. It was a paralyzing and lonely place to be in. After hitting bottom I began my journey to a better relationship with food. Through that journey and experience, I have realized that success can be achieved in a non-diet approach. It only reinforced what I had already learned and personally experienced, which is that restriction and food rules do not work.
Now fast forward to present day, I am a new mom exploring a whole new transition and journey with my body. I have a new understanding and appreciation of the struggles mom’s go through in trying to find balance. A place where you feel like yourself and confident in your ability to care for yourself and your child. It has given me a bigger passion to help women and mom’s, even more, conquer the ever confusing world of nutrition. No one should live with food fear and a constant feeling of defeat, which is why I started my own practice using a non-diet approach. I want more for myself and for the women I work with. Together we can stop dieting, start living, and teach our children and others what a positive relationship with food looks like.
