Non-Diet Nutrition Therapy

Are you ready to stop dieting and

My team and I provide virtual 1:1 non-diet nutrition therapy, body image healing, and body liberation coaching to help you heal your relationship with food and find lasting peace, balance, health (however you define that), and - ultimately - freedom.

If you...

  • Find yourself thinking about what you should eat instead of what you want to eat.
  • Spend much of the day worrying about what you ate (or didn’t eat) or what your body looks like.
  • Struggle with all-or-nothing tendencies (aka you’re often either “on” or “off” the wagon - no in between)
  • Have spent years trying to “fix” your eating habits, your body, or yourself - but nothing seems to work.
We get it.

As nutrition therapists, intuitive eating coaches, eating disorder dietitians, and body image specialists, my team and I have worked with hundreds of people to help them cultivate a healthy relationship with food and their bodies so they can live more authentic, unapologetic, liberated lives.  

I know that forgoing dieting and the diet mentality is not an easy task. We live in a messed up, oppressive diet culture where every day you are inundated with messages about dieting, weight loss, and all that is “wrong” with your body.

But here’s the secret:
Your body is NOT the problem.

The problem is with our (racist, sexist, classist) culture. A culture that cages us in, teaching us to shrink our bodies and our lives: telling us that when we do THEN we’ll have health, happiness, acceptance, and love...except that we don’t, because this is a lie.

Through our one-to-one coaching work we help you break free from this cage so you can build more self-awareness, reconnect with your body’s inner wisdom, learn to trust yourself again, and feel comfortable and confident in your body - no matter what it’s size. 

We help you move away from dieting, get out of the all-or-nothing mentality, and break free from the diet-binge-guilt cycle. That way you can take all the mental energy you spend on thinking or worrying about food and your body and use that time elsewhere.

So that you can live your most

unapologetic, liberated life.

“I’ve struggled with my weight and the scale had the power to make or break my day. I was anxious and stressed all of the time and it took its toll on my relationships. Now I’ve finally let go of the notion that I have to be on a diet and lose weight to be happy and healthy. Food is no longer constantly on my mind, and I’ve come to accept my body. I feel like I’ve gotten my life back thanks to working with Alissa and her team on this journey.”

Imagine a life where you:

  • Can keep all of your favorite foods in your house (I’m looking at you ice cream and chips) without feeling anxious or out of control. 
  • Wake up in the morning without that self-critical voice in your head telling you how awful of a person you are. 
  • Turn inward and trust your body cues to tell you what, when, and how much to eat and exercise.
  • Can confidently eat and nourish your body - with no foods off limits (hello dessert!) - and then move on with your day. 
  • Wear whatever bathing suit you want AND be in the photos, without spiraling into body shame or anxiety. 
  • Define health, success, and what you want life to look like on your own terms, based on your values rather than society's unrealistic (and oppressive) expectations. 
  • Roll down a hill, learn to surf, take up jump rope, or do whatever other thing you’ve been putting off because you think it has to wait until you’ve shrunk your body.
It’s possible, and we want to help you get there.

My team of registered dietitian nutritionists has experience in a variety of specialty areas including intuitive eating, healing from chronic dieting, disordered eating and eating disorder recovery, body image healing, children and family feeding, binge eating, emotional eating, gastrointestinal concerns including IBS and IBD, women’s health, PCOS, life transitions, trauma-informed nutrition care, and more.

“This coaching process has given me so much freedom – freedom from food obsession, freedom from all the rules I’d come to make for myself based off of diet culture, freedom from living in black and white. I am now at a place in my life where I’m on the path to getting back in touch with my body cues, loving joyful movement and gently nourishing myself. It’s amazing the amount of space and time that has now opened up in my life given that I’m no longer obsessing over what to eat, how much to eat and whether I have exercised ‘enough’. I’m trying out so many new things and having so much fun in life – fun that I thought was reserved for when I had successfully shrunk my body, but turns out it’s not.”

Here's how it works...

Divesting from diet culture and committing to healing is deep, brave, and oftentimes scary work. We work with folks so that we have enough time to spend together to be able to get to the root of what your struggling with and work through everything that comes up together. 

We’ll be by your side providing a safe, non-judgemental, supportive space for you to get curious and dig deep into your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about food and your body. 

In addition to 1:1 video sessions you also receive several additional forms of support including weekly journal reviews and check-ins, unlimited email support, and a variety of tools, practices, worksheets, and prompts tailored to you and your goals (we love a good journal prompt). 

We practice through a weight-inclusive lens with the goal of body liberation for all people. (Which is to say: our approach is rooted in anti-oppression, equity, intersectional feminism, and inclusion of all bodies, races, gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations. Read more here.)

Our approach is highly individualized and includes work in intuitive eating, mindfulness, self-compassion, self-care, the principles of Health at Every Size (HAES), nutrition, and psychology including several therapeutic modalities such as ACT, CBT, and IFS. 

We take a holistic self-care approach, meaning that we help you learn how to take care of yourself in all aspects of health – including food, movement, stress management, coping skills, sleep habits, boundary setting, and more.

In short: we help you go through the “mud” (as one of my clients likes to call it) that is divesting from diet culture, supporting and holding space for you as you sit with all the discomfort this brings up, and guiding you back towards your body and yourself.

“Before starting this work, I had hated my body since childhood and had engaged in disordered eating behaviors since middle school. I wanted to finally learn how to eat “normally”, and be okay with my body without feeling the need to change it. I worked with Alissa’s team for several months and am amazed by the progress I made in this amount of time. I was provided with so many resources and support both during our sessions together and between sessions via email. Today, I have more trust in my body than I ever have and, although I can’t yet say that I love my body, I know now that it is worthy of love and care.”
