About Lauren

Lauren is an intuitive, trauma-informed, and down-to-earth dietitian. With a rich background spanning various RDN roles—hospitals, cardiac rehab, private practice, and more—she brings a unique skill set focused on intuitive eating, mindful nutrition, heart health, and balanced plant-based, vegetarian, & vegan nutrition. Lauren's five years of experience have honed a specialized approach to nutrition counseling, aiming for the unique goal of eating competence. This involves achieving a positive and personalized relationship with food that feels liberating. She'll help you cultivate a healthier, more fulfilling relationship with food and overall well-being.

Approach to care

"When the joy goes out of eating, nutrition suffers." -Ellyn Satter | Navigating nutrition involves a dance of your body's processes & the psychology of food. Positive health changes address both the physical and emotional aspects. A healthy relationship with food goes beyond nutrient choices—it's about embracing emotions tied to eating, body image, & activity. Lauren's sessions take a holistic approach, shaping personalized nutrition plans for your needs. Rejecting the diet mindset, her aim is to empower you for lifelong well-being. Expect a nurturing space to repair these relationships, guiding you to where self-care becomes second nature.
