My Philosophy

Stephanie practices from a weight inclusive, Health at Every Size® (HAES) approach, which means that she does not believe that weight is the primary indicator of health.

 

She also advocates for the prevention of medical discrimination against individuals in larger bodies and believes in a standard of care regardless of body size. She is passionate about helping clients heal their relationship with food, movement, and their bodies by providing guidance on how to connect with their body and incorporate mindful eating into their everyday life.

 

This journey toward intuitive eating begins with listening to and understanding each client’s individual needs, and includes, among other things, developing flexible meal plans, assisting with grocery store planning, and guiding food exposures.

In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her family (including her rescue cat Sprinkles) and friends, as well as exploring restaurants across the DMV and traveling whenever possible.
