Hey there! I'm Libby.
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and I know it’s cliche to say, but it’s true - I’m a foodie at heart. I love to try new foods, I swoon over an inspiring sauce and I love to try to recreate my favorite dishes at home.
I also LOVE nature. I love spending time outside. I love to hike, bike, rock climb, backpack, ski and more! Seeing the leaves of a tree budding makes me giddy and when I’m stressed, I know I need to spend more time outside.
That’s why I’m passionate about helping others learn to eat (and live) in a way that supports their health and the health of our planet.
Food is complex and layered, and my relationship with food hasn’t always been smooth sailing. Throughout my high school and early college years, I struggled with food and disordered eating. I restricted, counted calories, and often practiced very unhealthy behaviors to try to control my body.
After I became a dietitian, I started working at a weight management program. At first, I loved it because I thought I was really helping people get healthier. But I quickly realized that my approach wasn’t helping people improve their health the way the textbooks taught me it should.
I saw my clients do everything “right” but not lose weight. I saw them turn to unhealthy behaviors in an effort to lose weight, only to gain it back shortly after. I knew there had to be another way.
Then I discovered Intuitive Eating. I found food freedom for both myself and my clients. I realized that health is so much more than simply what we eat and that if food and eating are stressful, it’s not actually health-promoting. I learned everything I could about Intuitive Eating and holistic health and began implementing them into my practice.
During this same time, my love for nature and the outdoors grew. I became passionate about keeping our planet beautiful so my children could experience the beauty of nature. I started reducing my waste and learned more about our food system and how what we eat impacts our environment.
That’s when I decided to merge my love of nature and Intuitive Eating into my practice focusing on non-diet sustainable nutrition.
Through compassion and a holistic approach, I want to help others redefine health and discover their own path to nourishing their bodies in a way that also supports a healthy planet.
I love helping people create nourishing habits that support the health of their mind, body, spirit and the planet. I focus on creating value-aligned habits for planet-conscious eating without rules or restrictions.
More about me…
My favorite things include experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, visiting local breweries and coffee shops, biking (both on trails and pavement!), hiking and camping in beautiful places, skiing in fresh powder, anything with raspberries, listening to music, and exploring new places together with my husband.
