Janice Dada, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist: SoCal Nutrition & Wellness
I work with individuals and families to optimize eating behaviors using a non-diet, Health At Every Size (HAES) focus. This is a client-centered approach that helps shift focus from body size to feelings and behaviors around food to help transform eating in a way that feels optimal for each individual. I am a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES, formerly known as Certified Diabetes Educator or CDE), a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, and have completed advanced training in eating disorders, integrative and functional nutrition, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
I offer personalized nutrition services (in person and virtually) in which one's unique food preferences, nutrition needs, and health concerns are heard and addressed. My passion lies in helping people forge a unique path to better health and wellbeing.
For those with symptoms, syndromes or medical diagnoses, evidence-based principles from the field of integrative and functional nutrition are utilized. My training in this area of nutrition has given me the skill and ability to order and interpret advanced laboratory testing and to help people choose supportive foods, herbs and dietary supplements for issues like diabetes, heart health, and digestive ailments.
My experience in the nutrition field extends from individual counseling, teaching undergraduate and graduate level courses, facilitating group workshops in person and virtually, consulting with treatment centers, surrogate agencies, and legal cases.
