Hey there, I’m Kara. I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist, certified intuitive eating counselor and registered yoga teacher who wants to help you learn to love food again.
I wasn’t always an anti-diet dietitian and food celebrating yogi. In fact, when I was a teenager, I struggled with anorexia nervosa and my broken relationship with food and my body was all-consuming. With proper treatment, I was able to recover and today I celebrate my body for all the amazing things it can do and I celebrate food for its ability to nourish, comfort, and evoke pleasure and joy. I know what it’s like to obsess over food and I also know what it’s like to break free from food holding the power and that freedom is what I want for you.
Do you feel like you’re in a never-ending cycle of dieting, binging and/or disordered eating? Are you ready to make peace with food and heal your relationship with your body? Are you ready to free up space and energy to start LIVING the life you were meant to live?
Let me help you learn to love food again. I’d love to work with you if you’re ready to:
- reject the diet mentality
- find satisfaction from food
- listen to your body’s innate wisdom
- discover joyful movement
- say peace out to the food police
- learn how to respect your body
- practice mindfulness and attunement
My blog, The Foodie Dietitian, is a place of food celebration. Through delicious, nourishing recipes, mindfulness inspiration and intuitive eating tips, my blog is meant to inspire you to stop looking at food through a lens of fear and instead look at food through a lens of joy.

NUTRITION COACHING PHILOSOPHY
Ever wonder how a toddler knows exactly what and how much he/she wants to eat? We’re all born with an innate ability to know what food our body needs and when we’re satisfied. But unfortunately, somewhere along the way, a family member, friend, health professional, or the media told us what we should and shouldn’t eat and we lost touch with that inner voice.
The good news is that inner wisdom still lives within each of us and I work with my clients to help strengthen that voice by helping them tune into their bodies to honor their hunger and feel when they’re full. We work on making peace with food by ditching the diet culture mentality, telling the food police to shove it, and finding pleasure and satisfaction from eating. I help my clients move away from “what should I eat right now?”, which comes from a place of fear, guilt and shame and empower them to use their internal wisdom and flex their self-trust muscle to ask, “what do I want to eat right now?”
Diets don’t work. It’s true. Research shows it. My experience counseling shows it. It’s important for you to know that you didn’t fail the diets. The diets failed you. I believe that once you clear the mental space and energy you spent on dieting and thinking about food that you can focus on all the other important things in your life – you can start living the life you deserve.
I believe that food is our ally, not our enemy (dieting is the enemy!). Food is meant to be pleasurable. It’s meant to be comforting and nourishing. I want to help you rediscover the joy in eating. To heal your relationship with food once and for all.
