Are you feeling confused about what to eat? Are you ready to make changes to your health but not sure where to start?
You have come to the right place.
Hi, my name is Alice and I am a Registered Dietitian living in Nanaimo, BC.
For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in food, nutrition and helping people. As well as this, cooking has always been one of my favourite creative outlets.
I’m passionate about helping people create change, learn to reconnect with their body and see a new perspective of health that doesn’t include quick fixes, restriction, guilt, or a “no pain no gain” attitude. My goal is always to help clients eat in a balanced way that is both healthy and delicious.
I specialize in mindful and intuitive eating and practice from a Health at Every Size® approach. Through this, I help clients learn to eat in a nourishing and satisfying way, to recognize and trust their body cues and to look beyond the scale for indicators of health. I am a certified craving change facilitator, certified intuitive eating counsellor in training and have taken additional courses in helping clients with behaviour change and their body image.
In all of my work, I strive to create an inclusive, safe and non-judgemental environment. I meet clients where they are at, no matter where they are in their health journey, and assist them to work towards their health goals.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition and Health at the University of British Columbia and dietetic internship with Island Health. I am registered with the College of Dietitians of BC and am a member of Dietitians of Canada. I started my career as a clinical dietitian in residential care and have since worked with people across the lifespan from moms and babies to seniors. I take clients for nutrition counselling at Compassion Inspired Health in Nanaimo, BC.
In my free time you can find me cooking or writing a new recipe, hiking with my chocolate lab Henry, road tripping around BC in a big green van or volunteering with Nanaimo Community kitchens.
I look forward to working with you,
