Kriste is dedicated to supporting her clients on their journey to find peace with food and body image concerns. Providing a safe, warm, and accepting environment is essential to understanding and nurturing the relationship with food, as well as to support body image healing.

My philosophy is set from a non-diet approach to wellness and recovery. I am passionate about helping others nourish their bodies, minds, and spirits in ways that are rewarding and without shame or judgment. Using an intuitive eating and mindfulness based approach, I provide guidance to help my clients heal from a variety of eating disorders and body image concerns. I understand how important it is to regain trust with your body and learn to make food choices from a place of nourishment and pleasure, rather than a place of deprivation.
EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE
I received my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition from California State University,
Los Angeles, and completed my dietetic internship at California State University, Long Beach, where I received my Master of Science in Nutritional Science.
To increase my level of expertise in the eating disorder field, I became a Certified
Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian (CEDRED) through the International Association
of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). I have also worked as the primary dietitian at
eating disorder, substance use, and mental health treatment centers throughout the
greater Los Angeles area, providing nutrition education and counseling, meal support,
