Our ultimate intent is to support you in learning how to honor your unique needs, by exploring what "health" really means for you, and empowering you to exist more peacefully with food and your body.
To facilitate this process, we offer a judgment-free space to discuss your eating, movement and body image-related concerns, invitations to unpack and challenge unhelpful internalized diet culture beliefs that may be keeping you stuck, and tailored support in cultivating behaviors that foster genuine physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Our style is person-centered, collaborative, strengths-based, compassionate and trauma-informed.
We work through a lens of weight inclusivity. This means we are committed to promoting a peaceful relationship with food and movement for individuals of all shapes and sizes. This also means we believe that weight stigma, including the pathologization of body size, is harmful to health.
Our work with each client is highly individualized and looks different for each person. Some of the theories that inform our approach include Intuitive Eating, Mindful Eating, Health at Every Size® (HAES®), the Non-Diet Approach, and the Division of Responsibility in Feeding. Each of these frameworks also have their own limits. We work creatively and flexibly with each client, keeping in mind individual circumstances and access to resources.
We believe in holistic care. If you are in eating disorder recovery and/or are working with other treatment providers, we will gladly collaborate with your team, or will help you create one by providing trusted, personalized referrals.
LK Nutrition values inclusivity, diversity, accessibility, collaboration and ethical care.
We recognize that our eating behaviors and attitudes towards our bodies don't occur in a vacuum. We believe it's crucial to acknowledge how systems of oppression impact individual relationships with food, and overall well-being.
We are dedicated to doing our own work to continuously stay aware of and challenge the ways in which privilege and power show up in our practice, and in the larger fields of nutrition and mental health.
We celebrate body diversity, support the fat liberation movement, and respect the ever-changing nature of the human form.
We strive to maintain an atmosphere that affirms our clients' diverse identities, including race, sexual orientation, gender identity, culture, ethnicity, age, ability, class, immigration status, and religion, as well as body shape and size.
We seek to stay curious about the unique lived experiences of our clients, and approach each with cultural humility and respect.
We are committed to taking responsibility for our mistakes, learning, and growing from them.
