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 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.
