did you grow up in a family obsessed with weight and dieting? 

If generational dieting trauma impacts your relationship to food and body image today, you're not alone. I'm Melissa, Registered Dietitian offering 1:1 nutrition therapy and body image coaching that takes into account your lived experience with disordered eating, eating disorders, and body image concerns.

After the 1x1 program with Melissa, I have stopped dieting and no longer feel the need to. I have learned to trust my body and eat without guilt, a concept that baffled me during our first call.

I have talked about my journey and healing my relationship with food with others, being vulnerable about something that would normally cause me to put up a wall. I’m learning my boundaries and how to cope with negative and positive emotions more than ever before without leaning restricting and binging.

Melissa helped me change my life and learn to take care of my body after over a decade of learning to do the opposite - without dieting.
