Embracing Intuition Fall 2022 _ Levi & Victoria Cretaive-50_edited.jpg

Hi! I'm Sandra, and I'm not your average intuitive eating dietitian.

I believe health exists BEYOND your bloodwork, beyond just the foods that are on your plate, beyond the barriers diet culture has set for you, beyond morality. I care about you as a WHOLE person. I want you to live life according to YOUR values. Not the obligations that society pushes on you. I care about what YOU care about.

 

I am willing to tussle with your body image; I know that I exist with privilege around body. And I'm prepared for you to hold my feet to the fire. Because I know that food freedom requires trust that your your body may change - and that your body is still good. Regardless of size. Regardless of health. 

 

When you choose to work with me, you should know that we will go beyond surface level, I'm not going to leave you feeling like there's unfinished business. We can't have a full honest conversation about food without talking about body image, and that's why I dive into both. 

Professionally, I'm a Registered Dietitian in BC, Canada, and a Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor. As an RD, you can bet that we will have the in depth conversations about food! I LOVE chatting all things food, and you deserve to have food be a source of joy and pleasure in your life.

 

Personally, I'm a girl who has been through the depths of diet culture, struggled with disordered eating, been at war with my body, and worked hard to eventually find peace with food and my body. The journey was full of bumps and literal mountains to climb over, but when I found my way out of diet culture and into empowerment and food freedom - I knew I wanted to help others do the same. I understand the struggles that you're facing with diet culture because I was you, I sat in the sticky middle mess of feeling confused, lost, and like a failure when I couldn't stick to the newest fad diet. I know that the work is uncomfortable but that's why I provide the level of support that I do in my coaching. And hey, nothing worth doing was easy anyways. 

During my free time, I'm usually cooking or baking something in the kitchen, cuddling my cat, watching the latest medical drama, or moving my body outside and breathing some fresh air. 

Ok, but what exactly is intuitive eating?

Intuitive Eating is a mind-body approach to health rooted in self-care and compassion. You learn to listen to the internal cues of hunger and fullness to find foods that genuinely make your body feel good. Intuitive Eating is an evidence based, weight neutral, and inclusive approach to health.
