About
Kristin
Hello! I'm Kristin, a dietitian who specializes in those seeking help with their weight loss, bariatric surgery, or women's health. I have a passion for guiding PCOS, infertility, binge eating, emotional eating, Intuitive Eating Principles, and those on medical weight loss drugs (think Wegovy, Ozempic, etc.). From working in a bariatric clinic for over 3 years, there are so many areas to talk about - habits before surgery, tolerance issues, deficiencies, progression through post-op diet stages, and overcoming weight plateaus. I have worked with all types of bariatric surgeries and can help with your specific needs - lap-band, sleeve, gastric bypass, duodenal switch/SADI, GJJ, etc.
Approach to care
We will "keep it real" by setting realistic goals that build slowly over time so that they last until we're 100. We will talk through any challenges that came up with your goals and debunk myths as needed. We will banish the shame and guilt that too often comes with eating, and learn to actually enjoy your favorite foods again! I know weight loss can have its ups and downs (literally!). I am here to help you sort out what to focus on while not feeling so restricted. We want these changes to last the rest of your life - not another diet that leaves you gaining the weight back and then some!

What to expect in your first session with Kristin?

The first session is to get to know me, your history, and what your top goals are while working with me! We sometimes get to goal-setting in the first session or get some background knowledge on the scientific reasoning behind your conditions - I love to explain these things so you know how your body/mind works. I will be asking your dieting history, weight changes, intolerances, and we will go through a typical day of eating to get a good idea of your current food preferences and schedule.
