Hi, friend! My name is Melissa and I am a registered dietitian practicing in central Iowa. I work with people on healing their relationships with food and their bodies that have been damaged from years of chronic dieting, disordered eating or eating disorders. It can be overwhelming to live in a culture that tells you you're not enough, and that the only way to be enough is to change your body, but I am here to tell you that that is not true. You are already enough, exactly as you are.

I work with women who struggle with various hormone imbalances related to thyroid health, sex hormone or adrenal imbalances and various gut issues. I take a functional approach to health and wellness so often times, various symptoms in different areas of the body are related so improvement in one area affects another area and provides relief of other symptoms.

Do you find yourself thinking about food all day, "overeating" at night, not being able to keep that one food in the house, and preoccupied about your weight? You are not alone in these struggles. Unfortunately, these things feel normal in our culture, but you don't have to have a bad relationship with food any longer. As a registered dietitian and nutrition and body image coach, I've helped so many women step out of the obsession and chaos and into peaceful food freedom. Imagine a life where you can trust your body, eat food you love and not feel guilty, and respect and value your body as it is.
