How our intuitive eating dietitian nutritionist can support you in embracing intuitive eating

At The Wellful, we recognize that “just listening to your body” is not a realistic or very helpful instruction for many who have years of practice, lived experiences, or learned behaviors that disconnect us from our bodies. What we can do is explore your current and past relationship with food, what impacts your food choices now, and develop tools and skills for connecting with your body, building body trust and making peace with food. Here’s how: 

Personalized Guidance:

Everyone’s journey to intuitive eating is different. Through a person-centered, therapeutic relationship, we can meet your wants, needs, preferences, and lifestyle. People seek out intuitive eating counseling for a variety of reasons. Some common influences in someone feeling connected and trusting of their body are: parents who dieted or ‘almond parents’, experiences of body or weight shaming as a child (or adult), dieting, disordered eating, food scarcity, food being a primary or only coping mechanism, weight stigma, living in a world that treats people differently based on body size, Everyone has unique needs, goals, and lifestyles. That’s why we tailor our intuitive eating approach to you.

Education and Ongoing Support:

Intuitive eating is about learning a new way to understand and connect with your body and unlearning black-and-white beliefs and patterns around eating. We’ll often provide a complimentary book, workbook and suggestions of podcasts, articles and other tools to help you feel more equipped and empowered in this work.

Person-Centered Care:

We don't just focus on what you eat but also on the emotional and psychological aspects of your relationship with food. Our person-centered approach addresses the root causes of disordered or disconnected eating habits.
