Nutrition Counseling / Coaching available                             at Student Health Partners

 

Your relationship with food and your body has a big impact on your physical and mental health, academic achievement, and social life. 

Nutrition Philosophy: 

Optimal nutrition is unique for each individual. We can eat intuitively and with intent to satisfy our energy needs when we eat with balance, moderation, and variety, while also paying attention to the bodys natural cues. 

  • We encourage non-restrictive, weight-neutral approaches to both nourishing our bodies and enjoying our food.
  • We embrace body diversity and encourage everybody to acknowledge their potential to thrive. 
  • We encourage fun activity and joyful movement that energizes your body and spirit. 

If you would like support to find ways to make peace with food and your body, consider an appointment with our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. They help empower you to discover your unique path to well-being. 

If you are eligible to use Student Health Partners, you may see the dietitian/nutritionist for no additional charge.
