Become a Client: Nutrition Coaching

Hi, my name is Nicole, the registered dietitian and founder of Nutritionally Nicole and I am so glad that you are here. If you are reading this, it means you’re opening your mind to how working with a registered dietitian can offer you the knowledge, tools, and support to better your health and well being. With a diagnosis of one or multiple food allergies, navigating the world of Nutrition can feel frustrating, confusing, and even exhausting. It does not have to be this way! Through one to one nutrition coaching with me, you will finally understand the nutrition piece of food allergy life- whether this is your new normal or you have been managing food allergies for years. 

 

Let me share what the nutrition coaching process looks like. In your first session, we will dive into your unique eating habits and behaviors, medical and health history, food preferences, challenges and past successes. It is so important to consider all areas of your life- not just nutrition- to best support you in making healthy a lifestyle and practice sustainable health-supportive habits realistically for the long term. From there, we will curate a plan of action that meets you where you are right now to help you reach your goals. 

 

Throughout my counseling experience, I have helped clients with food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities to avoid nutrient deficiencies, heal their relationship with food and overcome disordered eating behaviors, practice mindful eating, provide optimal nutrition to their children, get creative in the kitchen by making the most of their safe foods and so much more.

 

You have it inside of you to completely transform your health and your life. I am here to guide, support, and empower you along the way. So your next step is to schedule a free discovery call with me to see if we are a good fit for one another and answer any questions you might have. I am looking forward to working with you soon and hope you have a wonderful day.

The NN philosophy

A Wholesome Food Experience.

Born and raised in an Italian-American family, my most vivid memories include kneading pizza dough with grandma, decorating holiday cookies with momma, assembling the perfect Italian sandwich with dad, and picking fresh fruits and vegetables with grandpa from the garden. Sunday dinners and family mealtimes kept our family close and provided an experience where food was more than just its nutrient components. Recipes were adapted to become allergy friendly and foods were carefully prepared to ensure my safety. It is more than possible to carry out food traditions and participate in home cooking with food allergies and I can guide you through.

 

All Foods Fit.

Nutrition is important but so is the enjoyment of life. Why eliminate your favorite foods just because it may be higher in fat content or contains processed sugar? No one food is good or bad and by providing you with evidence-based research and knowledge of how nutrients interact with the body as a whole, I can guide you to finding your balance. I am a dietitian who believes that both apples and apple crisp can fit into a health-supportive lifestyle.

 

Tailored To You.

Nutrition is not one size fits all. Each one of us has unique life experiences, health backgrounds, and attitudes towards wellness. It is important to me to explore all of the wonderful components that make you who you are and, together, create a path to reach your nutrition goals.
