Background

I'm Amanda (she/her) - a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor with zeal for helping others develop more peaceful relationships with food and their bodies. Although I've been passionate about food for as long as I can remember, diet culture grossly tainted my perception of nutrition and my relationship to food for many years. Working to heal my own relationship to food and my body has been challenging, but it's strengthened and solidified my resolve to support others on their own healing journeys. I believe YOUR healing is important because I believe ALL bodies are worthy of taking up liberated space in this world. My goal as a clinician is to provide soft guidance that enables you to experience improved overall health & well-being, as well as a deeper sense of embodiment. Please be encouraged to know that my nutrition therapy recommendations never include the prescription of a calorie restricted meal plan. In focusing on health and well-being, the emphasis of HAES-informed nutrition counseling is not on weight/weight loss, but rather on sustainable, health-promoting behaviors. However, discussion of weight concerns, if the client desires, can certainly be honored & included as a component of our nutrition therapy sessions.

​I am a sunshine enthusiast, and kitty mum to Ralphie -- a very handsome, charismatic feline that lights up my life and brings me heaps of joy every single day. When I'm not channeling my energy into body liberation work, you might find me reading, traveling/making travel plans, or spending time outdoors. I enjoy cooking, especially when I'm tapping into my Sicilian roots. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Madonna University and completed my dietetic internship at Harper University Hospital in coordination with the Detroit Medical Center. For over 15 years I've been practicing as an RDN, with extensive experience in both clinical and wellness work.
