    Hey, I'm Maggie

    I am a weight-inclusive dietitian and here to help you eat in a nutrient-dense and enjoyable way.


    I support children, adults, and families with a variety of nutrition-related questions and concerns. Whether you're a parent starting your baby on solid foods, supporting a child with feeding differences, or seeking to reduce stress around family meals, I'm here to help. I also work with individuals experiencing stress related to food, including restrictive or binge eating behaviors.


    I am deeply committed to the Health at Every Size (HAES) approach. I aim to provide affirming care and create an open, inclusive space where your lived experiences are heard and valued. With over a decade of experience as a registered dietitian, I am here to guide your nutrition journey with compassion, clinical experience, and evidence-based care.


    If you're ready to make a change in your relationship with food, I'm here and ready to assist you.
