Jessie is a registered dietitian who is passionate about providing nutrition counseling to individuals with eating disorders, chronic dieters, and those wishing to improve their relationship with food and their bodies. She believes that there is no one diet for optimal health, because everyone’s nutritional, emotional and physical needs vary. She uses a non-diet approach to work with each client to build a pattern of eating that best suits their individual needs. Jessie is comfortable working with individuals with co-occurring mental health concerns like addiction, anxiety, and depression, and has personal experience with working a 12-step program. She believes that nutrition plays a vital role in recovery from mental and physical health issues, and hopes to provide a safe space for clients to feel comfortable discussing all aspects of health.
Jessie received her bachelor’s degree in Communication and Media Studies from The University of Michigan and her Post-Bachelor Certificate in Dietetics from Wayne State University. During her clinical training, Jessie completed a clinical rotation at St. John Ascension hospital, where she spent much of her time in the behavioral health unit. In addition to nutrition counseling, Jessie has experience in long-term care, food service and adolescent eating disorder recovery programs.
Outside of helping her clients, Jessie loves spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys staying active with running, dancing and attending live music events, but also loves staying home curled up with her cat and a good book. Book recommendations are always welcome!
