We offer a free 15-min “meet the nutritionist” appointment for new clients. Call Tessa at 971-270-0590 or email at email@example.com. She can answer any questions you might have and set you up with an appointment there.
We’ll talk about what you want to work toward with your health and food goals. We’ll explore your health history, relationship with certain foods, what foods you like and don’t like and what nutrition goals will work best for you.. We’ll develop a wellness vision and get you started on that path.

Tessa is in the office on Mondays 12-8pm, and Wednesdays/Thursdays 9am-5pm.

We strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for you to explore your food concerns. We won’t be labeling foods “good” or “bad”. In fact, my clients frequently report significantly reduced shame around food after working together.

Absolutely, we enjoy working with people of all genders, any sexual orientation, religious or cultural background.
Yes, we prefer to collaborate with your other providers to ensure you get the highest quality of care. Those struggling with eating disorders need a “team” which hopefully includes, a dietitian, therapist, and primary care provider. If you need help finding the support we can offer local referrals.
For clients under the age of 18 it will be important to have family involved with the first session and to touch base with them along the way. For clients 18 and over it’s up to you how it may be helpful to include a partner, family member or roommate.
Please give at least 48 hours to reschedule or cancel. The late cancellation fee is $55. By scheduling an appointment, you are making a commitment not only to your health, but to your nutritionist as well. We appreciate your consideration in this regard.
