THE NUTRITIONIST

Hi, I’m Ellen (she/her). 👋

I help people like you end the emotional eating guilt and find joy and balance in your relationship with food.

Are you using food to cope with stress and numb your anxiety?

Are you fed up with the shame, guilt, and self-hatred?

 
 

Adulting is hard.

I know how overwhelming it is to juggle everything that you have to do in a day.

I get what you’re going through. The painful struggles. The emotional eating. The shameful thoughts.

Been there, done that.

This changed when I started to uncover what thoughts triggered my food cravings and binge eating. It’s an ongoing practice. But I feel more at peace. I want this for you too.

How do you feel around food?

Do you ever think:

🙋‍♀️ “I’m so disgusting.”

🙋‍♀️ “I’ll be good tomorrow.”

Diets aren’t the answer.

If diets worked. You wouldn’t be here right now.

How much longer can you go on like this?

What would you do with the mental real estate if you weren’t always stressing and obsessing over food?

I’m not the food police.

I’m a Certified Nutritionist and Intuitive Eating Coach. In my work with you, I also draw on over 10 years of experience in teaching and coaching. From the university classroom, to the skating rink. I’m even a trained Life Coach.

After years of behind-the-scenes work in the nutrition world. And witnessing the dirty truth behind “clean eating.” I’d rather help you uncover the “whys” behind your eating habits than dissect nutrition labels.  

My passion for advocacy informs my compassionate, non-judgmental approach.

Diets do more harm than good. So I use a Healthy at Every Size® (HAES) approach to help you make peace with food. I’ll never put you on a diet. Instead I’ll help you achieve true health by focusing on your body’s needs. Cool?

Do you want to stop feeling out of control and enjoy food again?

Here’s what past clients say about working with me:

“Ellen’s coaching is gentle and kind. She’s a great teacher and everything is step-by-step.”

“Ellen helps you find solutions that actually work. She's so good at explaining things.”

Okay, are we doin’ this. Or what?

 
 

P.S. I’m not a medical professional. I can’t assess, diagnose, or treat your physical or mental health condition. My coaching services provide you with information, guidance, and support. But aren’t intended to be used as medical advice. But you already knew that.
