*Miranda is not accepting new clients at this time*

Hello! 

My name is Miranda, and I became interested in nutrition when I was diagnosed with the autoimmune condition known as celiac disease at the age of ten. Through this experience as well as working through some disordered eating habits in my past, I became more and more intrigued about the impact that food can have on our health and how we feel every day, and that it can look different for each person.

Professional Background 

As a result of my curiosity, I finished my degree in Dietetics and Nutrition Management at Colorado State University. Following this, I completed a dietetic internship at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX. It was through these experiences that I learned I was passionate about counseling patients with a variety of GI issues, autoimmune conditions, food sensitivities, and eating disorders.

Personal Philosophy

My nutrition philosophy is based both on the principles of intuitive eating, a mindful, compassionate, and “non-dieting” approach to nutrition, as well as integrative and functional nutrition, which is a holistic approach to health. I believe health and how we nourish our bodies is a journey and not a destination. It can change with seasons. Food is something that should unite us and not lead to isolation. From personal experience, I know it is possible for anyone to make peace with food and his/her body and have fun while doing it, even with complicated health circumstances. Instead of assigning cookie-cutter diets that fail in the long run, nutrition therapy must be applied on an individual basis. Nourishing our bodies through food is one way we can respect our bodies, and also enjoy one of God’s many gifts to us.

Goals

My goal through our sessions is to help my clients feel empowered to love and take care of their bodies through the foods they eat, and to not place limits on what that looks like for anyone.  I understand that food can seem tricky, especially if you’re dealing with a chronic condition or autoimmune disease like Crohn’s, IBS, celiac disease, or fibromyalgia, but it does not have to be as complicated as it seems. Or maybe you have struggled with your relationship with food, whether that looks like an eating disorder, disordered eating habits, or struggling with emotional eating. My hope is that we can simplify food!

If any of this resonates with you, I would love to partner with you and help discover a way of eating that is sustainable, fun, and makes a positive impact on your health. I offer convenient virtual sessions that provide a safe, simple, and fun way for us to meet in the comfort of your own home or office, or even while traveling. I can’t wait to meet you and walk alongside you throughout this process!
