My Philosophy of Care

I believe in a holistic approach to nutrition, looking at the whole body and mind to help clients improve their relationship with food. I love using experiential therapy and modeling during our sessions. I aim to help clients make peace by fueling themselves and hope to support my clients towards being able to enjoy their eating experiences and feel comfortable in their bodies.

I believe all people deserve access to equitable healthcare. I believe that weight loss is not an appropriate intervention and can be harmful to my clients. I believe taking the full person into consideration is necessary for providing healthcare that is not harmful. I also believe in a client-led approach, where my clients have the autonomy to choose what they are wanting to focus on in regards to our sessions and their well-being.

About Me & My Practice

I am a registered dietitian who is licensed in Illinois and Missouri. I received my Bachelor of Science through Fontbonne University as a University Scholar and my Master of Science through Saint Louis University as summa cum laude. I obtained my Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) credential through the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals. I specialize in the LGBTQIA+ community, completing graduate research on nutrition and eating disorders in the transgender population.

I started my profession as a dietitian at the YMCA, then worked for Alsana Treatment Centers at both the residential and PHP/IOP locations, then helped open Clementine in Saint Louis for adolescent residential. While working at higher levels of care, I also provided outpatient services through Branz Nutrition Counseling, where I am now working full-time. I have volunteered through the Missouri Eating Disorders Association to provide Feed the Facts eating disorder awareness curriculum to local middle schools and high schools.

Michelle is a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP), International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians (IFEDD), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and belongs to the BHN (Behavioral Health Nutrition) national dietetic practice group. I have held positions as a board member of iaedp and networkED (a local ED non-profit).

Accessibility Considerations

Our seating accommodates larger sized bodies. Our Missouri location has to steps up to the entrance with our office on the main floor. There is a ramp available at the side door. Our Illinois location has no steps to the ground floor. Both have accessible restrooms. Please notify us of any notable accommodations as we are more than willing to make changes, if able!
