Strong Roots Nutrition

I’m Taylor, a dietitian and nutrition counselor. As a HAES® and intuitive eating-aligned provider, my goal is to help my clients take care of themselves well by healing their relationships with food and body, stripping away external rules and judgments surrounding food, tuning into their own internal needs and wisdom, and enjoying food, life, and sport more fully as a result.  

Like most dietitians, I used to think health and wellness were about eating and moving in a certain way.  I saw this approach fail clients as they felt stress around food choices and mistrust toward their bodies – definitely not the “healthy lifestyle” I was trying to promote.  Somewhere along the way, I found the concepts of Health at Every Size® and Intuitive Eating, and so many things clicked.  True well-being is not stressful food rules and battling natural body size.  It’s ditching the food rules, making peace with body weight and shape, and making food and movement choices from a perspective of enjoyment, pleasure, and self-care.

Food is one of life’s greatest gifts and a wonderful way to celebrate culture, taste, connection, abundance, function, and pleasure.  I truly believe that you CAN remove guilt and anxiety from the eating experience and reclaim the table as a place where food is positive again.

Taylor is a registered dietitian, a board-certified specialist in sports dietetics, Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian, and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.
