Amanda Villescas, RDN, Body-Inclusive Virtual Nutrition Counseling

I’m Amanda – a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor with a passion for helping others develop more peaceful relationships with food and their bodies.  I’m also passionate about making this type of health & wellness support more accessible by offering low-cost, virtual nutrition therapy sessions.

My nutrition therapy approach is anti-diet, body-inclusive, and has been shaped by the Intuitive Eating principles.

When working together, we’ll explore habits and behaviors that honor hunger & fullness, cultivate balanced nourishment, and encourage eating with flexibility and mindfulness.

I hope to share fresh insight and therapeutic nutrition interventions that empower you to tune into your needs from a place of curiosity and self-compassion, rather than judgment or shame.  My goal is to provide gentle guidance that enables you to experience improved overall health & well-being, as well as a deeper sense of embodiment.

Please be encouraged to know that my nutrition therapy recommendations never include the prescription of a calorie restricted meal plan.  In focusing on health and well-being, the emphasis of HAES-informed nutrition  counseling is not on weight/weight loss, but rather on sustainable, health-promoting behaviors.  However, discussion of weight concerns, if the client desires, can certainly be honored & included as a component of our nutrition therapy sessions.

Education and training:
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Madonna University and completed my dietetic internship at Harper University Hospital in coordination with the Detroit Medical Center. For over 15 years I’ve been practicing as an RDN, with extensive experience in both clinical and wellness work.
