About Nikki

I am an anti-diet registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and certified eating disorders specialist (CEDS) licensed in Illinois, USA, a nutritionist, and health coach. My area of expertise revolves around aiding all clients in developing a balanced and more positive relationship with food.

My Approach

In nutrition therapy, my approach is both affirming and individualized, with the goal of helping clients of diverse backgrounds and identities, including those of all sizes, genders, abilities, races, religions, and ethnicities, to achieve their health goals on their own terms.

To help clients cultivate a healthier relationship with food I encourage freedom from food rules and food and body judgments. Moreover, I use evidence-based recommendations and an all foods fit approach that neutralizes the concept of “good” or “bad” foods.

Given the sensitive nature of this work, I prioritize clear and direct communication, while also demonstrating empathy, compassion, and my characteristic sarcastic humor.

My Hopes for You

There is an abundance of nutrition misinformation out there, however, my goal is to make it easier for clients to navigate the food and nutrition space by providing factual information and instilling confidence when making changes to one’s health.

My hope is to inspire clients and instill the belief that having a healthy relationship with food is achievable, and that food holds a broader meaning beyond just its nutritional value.

Certainly, I believe that food plays a vital role in achieving health, but it’s also personal, cultural, and social. As a result, in nutrition therapy, I aim to explore the client’s relationship with each of these facets of food.

My Mission

My mission is to empower individuals to cultivate a healthy and positive relationship with food. Through education, guidance, and support, I strive to help my clients make informed choices, develop a deeper understanding of their nutritional needs, and foster a more mindful and enjoyable approach to eating. 

Furthermore, I believe that everyone deserves to have a nourishing and satisfying relationship with food, and I am committed to helping my clients achieve this goal.
