Hi There! I’m Kristie, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian with offices in Glendale, CA and Santa Clarita Valley. I specialize in treating eating disorders, nutrition therapy for addiction recovery, co-occurring mood disorders, and provide weight – neutral support for clients with diabetes, PCOS, among other nutrition needs.
My focus is on supporting clients on their journey to find peace with food and body image concerns.
Providing a safe, warm, accepting, and encouraging environment is essential to understanding and nurturing the relationship with food, as well as to support body image healing. There is no room for judgment on this journey, I consider it a privilege to serve as a partner and guide, to help you create meaningful and stable change. I look forward to many more years of continuing my extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in this field.
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,
grocery store tours, and culinary support.
