1:1 functional nutrition for mind, body, and spirit

Newsflash:
How you feel matters

You’re feeling alone on your health journey.

You’ve gone to countless doctor appointments but have never received a real answer. Or your symptoms have been dismissed as “not a big deal.”

You’ve tried a ton of “popular” diets but they didn’t work for you. Or you’re eager to eat intuitively and “love your body,” but you also don’t want to gain weight in the process.

You’ve been trying to piece it all together but, the more you read, the more confused you get.

You find choosing what to eat intimidating and you stress about social events.

Anxiety or panic attacks rule your life even though you’ve tried all sorts of treatments and therapies.

You struggle with bloating, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, hemorrhoids, abdominal discomfort, or just a general feeling of “blah”.

You’ve tried to lose weight countless times. But you can't seem to keep it off no matter how hard you try.

Does any of this resonate?

Your life changes
when you become
the expert of
your own body

While some professionals come right out the gate recommending foods, diets, and supplements, that’s not how we roll here. It’s never enough to assume what your goals are. Cookie-cutter recommendations? Not going to work.

I see you over a longer period of time so I can fully tailor the experience to you. We go deep into your overall well-being before I even start to make recommendations.

Most importantly, everything is done through the lens of your experience. The way you feel dictates our entire journey together. It may start with one goal to lose weight, solve a gut issue, or heal anxiety. But it could end with an entirely new outlook on how you approach your health.

APPR
OACH.

I work with three primary conditions, which often occur at the same time. If you struggle with one, you may struggle with another. We’ll tackle it all.

My specialities

Through time and holistic listening, you’ll find out how to reverse your gut issues instead of just managing symptoms. 

Gut issues can cause stress, pain, discomfort, and embarrassment. They can feel so incredibly isolating.

It’s disheartening when you go to countless doctor appointments to find an answer to it all, but end up feeling worse or more confused than ever. That ends now.

We’ll get to the root cause of your gut issues (not just slap on an IBS diagnosis and call it a day).

Gut issue treatment

You’ll quiet the diet chatter and make aligned choices in your diet and lifestyle. So you can lose weight in a loving way.

It feels like the nutrition world is split into two camps right now. One is “weight loss and diet culture.” The other is “intuitive eating and anti-weight loss at all costs.” Neither camp is individualized and it takes a delicate blend to achieve wellness. It’s okay if neither camp works for you (and it makes sense that they don’t!).

Body neutral weight loss is slow, individualized, compassionate, and shame-free. We acknowledge the biological facts surrounding certain foods and body functions, but we don’t assign “good” or “bad” labels to them.

Body neutral weight loss

02.

Using a holistic approach, you’ll learn to befriend anxiety and use it to your advantage. So you can transform it and escape the struggle for good. 

Conventional anxiety treatments don’t get to the root cause. So even if you’ve been to 1000 appointments and received a dozen prescriptions...It’s no surprise if you still haven’t overcome it. This is largely because anxiety is both mental and physical. It’s a sign that something in the body needs more attention. Yet, conventional practices don’t treat it that way.

Wherever you’re at, there’s still hope. No matter how frequent or intense, we can heal stress using a holistic combination technique that supports mind, body, and spirit. In other words, you can literally change your thoughts with the foods you eat.

The hardest part of making health changes for some people is actually knowing what to do. After trying so many different diets, reading so many different things on Instagram, I usually hear clients saying, “Please just tell me what to eat already!”

While health isn’t as simple as printing some 1200 calorie generic meal plan off the internet, it also doesn’t have to be so hard and confusing either. That’s where your Battle Plan comes in!

To make the journey as straightforward and easy to follow as possbile, I create a highly individualized plan after each initial consultation. I call it a “Battle Plan” because it strategically targets overall health from every angle (lifestyle, breath work, supplements, movement, scheduling, and of course- food!) It is a lengthy and extremely specific document that works as a step-by-step guide for how to feel better and heal.

"Before I met Michelle, I realized I didn’t really know how to eat. There’s so much conflicting information and it’s hard to interpret one thing from another. My body wasn’t responding in terms of health and vitality. I needed someone to help me unravel layer after layer of things that needed to be addressed.

As soon as I met with Michelle, I felt supported. She is the ultimate guru—around nutrition and food, yes. But she’s a big advocate for her patients as individuals too. There were some challenging parts of my journey. But I felt heard. I had this safe environment to say anything and everything she did was totally customized to me. There is no one size fits all. She takes a very caring, centred approach to make sure what she advises is going to gel with you.

Ultimately, working with Michelle has given me a greatly elevated state of health. I have a deep understanding now of how the body works. She also helps me connect to other healthcare providers if it’s ever needed.

There are days where we meet and our conversation isn’t really about food. It’s about the support and understanding. I feel like she’s part of my family. She’s a trusting guide, partner, and a safe space. She’s a true advocate."

Ultimately, working with Michelle has given me a
greatly elevated state of health.

I had gained 30 pounds after a very stressful work year which caused me to emotionally eat and ditch my healthy habits (such as going to the gym, preparing my own food, and drinking a lot of water). I had attempted a lot of different things to lose the weight, including Nutrisystem, working with a personal trainer, exercising as much as possible, and joining online challenges (i.e. "DietBet"). At best, I would lose a pound every two weeks. I attributed some of my challenges to my thyroid issue as well, further making my weight loss challenge even more difficult.

After the first consultation with Michelle over the phone, I already felt so much better, therapeutic really, that someone understood what I was going through and that weight loss did not have to be impossible, even with a thyroid condition.

Long story short, in a few months I have lost 30 pounds (and counting!), learned how to eat right, have more energy and sleep better at night.

In addition to the weight loss, my thyroid numbers have miraculously fallen back into a "normal" person's range (which I think is possibly just as incredible), all based on diet alone. Michelle has become not only my dietitian, but my friend. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone else out there that is close to "giving up" or just "accepting" their body although they want to be healthier and make a positive lifestyle change.

I feel like my old self again. She helped me get my confidence and
health back, and for that I am forever grateful.

"I had always felt like I had sensitivities to foods that I couldn't pinpoint. Many things were happening to my body that I didn't know were connected (migraines, sleep, body aches, vertigo, etc.). I always felt fatigued and like I couldn't get a grip on the right diet for my lifestyle/body.

[When I met Michelle], I instantly felt comfortable, supported, and like someone wanted to listen to me. She helped me bring it all together to address symptoms and get to the root cause.

Now I have an ally and a partner to help me navigate my health and food choices. I don’t hate my body. I can enjoy food again without allowing food choices to make or break my day. I don’t feel like I ever need to go on a diet again. And I have a new friend and confidant as the cherry on top!"

"Michelle has changed my life. "
