THE POSITIVE NUTRITION APPROACH
The foundation of Positive Nutrition is to help individuals, communities and experts create positive relationships with food. Through individual nutrition therapy, online courses, training for experts and more, Positive Nutrition provides sustainable, practical and positive health and nutrition solutions.
Although weight-neutrality and intuitive eating inform the way we approach our clients, it doesn't mean we are unable or unwilling to discuss weight concerns. If this is important to our clients, it's important to us! Together, we will discover powerful positive ways to approach nutrition and health that don't leave you feeling guilty or shameful about food or your body. We don't promote any type of one-size-fits-all promises about health and nutrition and instead, use our expertise and training in nutrition and behavior change to help you find sustainable and positive solutions for life.
We respect all backgrounds and promise to be supportive and understanding of each of our clients regardless of race, gender, sexuality, religion, political leaning etc. This is a safe place for all!
