JASMINE HORMATI, MS, RD (SHE/HER)
NUTRITION THERAPIST AND REGISTERED DIETITIAN
Everyone has a connection to food, and diet culture disrupts that. We let our fear of not being accepted because we don’t fit into the media’s definition of “beauty” or “healthy” take control of our eating and movement patterns. We look outward for rules to follow instead of tuning into what our needs and wants are.
I was once there too. When I first started to learn about nutrition, I let the food police take over. I thought if I could follow these external food rules, I would lose my ‘rice pooch’ (Iranians eat a lot of rice) and that I would feel more confident and beautiful. I was lucky to learn about intuitive eating early on in my education and realized how much I actually enjoy food. This approach to food and movement works for my lifestyle and aligns with my values.
I’m here to help people reconnect to their inner wisdom and develop relationships with food, movement, and their body that bring them joy. I use a client-centered approach that cultivates a collaborative partnership - no one knows you better than you. I will work with you to figure out where your beliefs, thoughts, and feelings about food and your body came from so that we can evaluate if they still align with your values. I’m here to guide you on this journey to reclaim your self-worth using mindfulness and self-compassion.
