We're passionate about helping children to grow up with a good relationship to food and body, and helping parents support their children to be healthy, adventurous, intuitive eaters. We help with the often challenging aspects of feeding the whole family while meeting everyone's individual nutrition needs. Our approach is informed by Ellyn Satter's Division of Responsibility in Feeding which helps children be in-tune with internal appetite cues and achieve health from the inside out.
Some of the nutrition concerns I work with include:
WHO: General pediatric & family appointments can be scheduled with Jamie Clayton, RDN (starting August) or Marlene Hillyer, RDN. Eating disorder appointments can be scheduled with Raven Bonnar-Pizzorno, RDN or Stephanie Voytek, RDN.
WHERE: Appointments available in-person at our Seattle office or via video calls (aka telehealth) to clients in Washington and certain other states. See our FAQ page for more info.
HOW OFTEN: The frequency of appointments is dependent upon your child's/ family's current nutrition status and goals. Most clients are seen every 2-4 weeks to start. It is common to meet more frequently in the beginning and then less frequently as time goes by. Nutrition counseling is most effective when you have regular appointments to check in on progress, receive nutrition guidance and develop new goals.
Don't Have A "Problem"?
That's great! Good nutrition is preventative medicine. And insurance companies recognize that now, which is why most plans cover wellness nutrition check-ups under your preventative health benefit. That means your child's nutrition appointment(s) may be covered in full with no cost to you.*
*Plan benefits vary greatly so please check with your insurer to verify your nutrition benefits.
