Hello! My name is Marissa Prieto. I am a Latina Registered Dietitian, Certified Health Coach, Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size, weight inclusive aligned practitioner. I have 12 years of experience helping patients manage chronic conditions and develop sustainable healthy habits that support their health and wellbeing. I specialize in diabetes management and prevention, pre and post natal nutrition, disordered eating, and body image. I am a wife and mom of three young children. I grew up influenced by American culture and by the Mexican culture passed down to me through my family. I understand how important food is within our culture and believe they should be celebrated not shamed.
Approach to care
I believe in a whole-person, individualized, and positive non-diet approach to health. I'm passionate about helping others develop sustainable healthy habits that will improve their quality of life. I will encourage you to focus on making small, gradual changes that support your health and nutrition goals. Working with me is a judgement-free zone. I believe that you are the expert in your life and I will never tell you what you "should" do. I will always meet you where you are at. I believe health is more than just physical, it is also emotional and mental. I consider all of these components of health in my work.
What to expect in your first session with Marissa?
During your first session I would like to get to know you and what you would like to achieve during our time together. I'll ask questions about your medical history, nutrition and lifestyle habits, and other important topics related to your health. We will discuss your challenges and where you would like to be. We will talk about client and practitioner expectations. At the end of the session we will collaborate on creating a mini goal for our next session.
