Client Age Range
Get in touch    →
Ava Safir, JD, MS, RDN is a Registered Dietitian specializing in nutrition counseling and education. Ava began her professional career as an attorney in New York City. After moving to Connecticut, she worked as a certified personal trainer and certified Pilates instructor, adapting sessions to clients across the lifespan. Ava deepened her passion for nutrition after experiencing firsthand how nutrition therapy and lifestyle changes significantly improved her health and well-being. This experience inspired Ava to earn her RDN licensure and Master of Science in Nutrition Education at Columbia University-Teacher’s College. Ava strongly believes in a personalized approach to counseling in which she partners with her clients to discover the nutrition and lifestyle approaches that work best for them. She also rejects diet culture and believes the risk of medical conditions can be reduced while also enjoying food. Ava enjoys working with adolescents and adults on a range of issues, with special focus on gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, heart disease, anti-inflammatory protocols, weight gain/loss, and intuitive eating. During her free time, Ava can often be found hiking, at the gym, spending time with her family/friends, reading, and participating in continuing education programs focused on the latest research in nutrition and dietetics.
