Nutrition Counseling

Have you tried every diet in the book?

Are you exhausted obsessing over food 24-7?

Do you want to heal your relationship with food once and for all?

Then you’re the perfect fit for nutrition therapy.

  • Say goodbye to dieting once and for all (and WHY diets don’t work)
  • Honor your hunger and feel your fullness
  • Trust yourself around food
  • Find pleasure and satisfaction from eating
  • Be present to listen to your intuition

What Clients Are Saying

"Prior to working with Kara, I felt stuck in my relationship with food. After recovering from anorexia, I struggled with binge eating, restrictive thoughts, and negative body image. I had mostly normalized my eating behaviors, but I wanted to normalize my thoughts around food and my body. Working with Kara was wonderful. She was very kind during our sessions and always asked really thought-provoking questions. She has a great set of tools/exercises for working on body image; her approach to body image work is clear and practical. During my time working with Kara, I improved my body image immensely. I started to see my body in a kinder, more compassionate light. I was also able to let go of a lot of negative thinking around food. I no longer feel guilty about eating and she helped me work on introducing fear foods into my diet. I was surprised at how much progress I made working with Kara and would highly recommend working with her if you want to improve your relationship with your body and food. - JM "

"Kara was instrumental in jump-starting my eating disorder recovery after years of half-hearted attempts to patch up the most obvious pieces. She met me where I was while also challenging me to go deeper and improve my awareness of my eating disorder, which was crucial in propelling my recovery forward. Kara was compassionate, thoughtful, and collaborative. As a result of our work together I have made strides in increasing the variety of food I eat, having a more mindful perspective toward exercise, and having a more compassionate view of myself. I would highly recommend Kara to anyone ready to embark on a true journey toward healing. - KT"

"Kara is a compassionate and inspirational nutritionist. She meets you where you are, uncovers your motivators for change, and through education and coaching, empowers you to make changes that fit your lifestyle. I would absolutely recommend Kara. With her coaching and expertise, I was able to make changes to my eating habits and saw long-lasting results. - Anonymous"
