I go by the double first name "Mary Virginia." Growing up in New Orleans, every activity included the most incredible food. I had no idea that food could be boring! I learned to eat raw oysters from the shell and relished deeply flavorful tomatoes, apricots, and plumbs from the farm stand. Mirliton, a type of green gourd, was part of every holiday meal. It surprised me when I found out few outside of Louisiana had heard of it.
My husband, four daughters, and dog are my greatest joys, most profound inspiration and most avid supporters. We live in Atlanta, GA and take summer vacation in Western Michigan each year.
Walking in nature is my favorite way to meditate. There is nothing prettier than the branches of trees against a deep blue sky, and nothing more settling than listening to them rustle in a breeze.
As a clinical nutritionist with an integrative lens, I educate and support people with co-existing physical and mental health conditions. I use food, mind-body science, lifestyle, and habit changes to address digestion, blood sugar balance, and improve my clients' relationship with food. I am HAES aligned and have a weight-neutral practice. I am trauma informed. You are the expert of your body, and I am a knowledgeable guide. We partner to help you discover your best healing path.
Before our 90 minute intake appointment, I will ask you to complete several forms: e.g. HIPAA compliance forms, health and social history, My Symptom Questionnaire, Nutrition Focussed Physical (Self) Exam, Wellness Questionnaire, and possibly a Three Day Food Journal (depending on your health concerns). When we meet, we will discuss what we've learned and form an initial plan.
Natural inclination, my connection to spirit, and my children.
