COURTNEY ELKINS

Registered and Licensed Dietitian

Hi, my name is Courtney. I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian. I have been practicing for 7 years, with a focus on clinical nutrition and wellness. In my career as a dietitian, I have had the privilege of managing a variety of nutrition-related conditions in a clinical setting — including diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, metabolic syndrome, pediatric nutrition, weight management, and disordered eating.


My mission is to empower you to create your own version of health by using evidence-based methods, dispelling food myths and misconceptions, and freeing you from a life of chronic dieting and food obsession. I believe that feeling full begins with self love, followed by filling your body with whole, plant-centered foods that are nutrient-dense, hydrating, and good for your body and soul.


While I develop a tailored strategy for each client, your ultimate goal will be listening to and honoring your body through intuitive eating. We will collaborate to create space in your life for self love and body acceptance — at any size.


My hope is for you to learn to live mindfully and feel full and satisfied. As you discover your own principles for health, you will not only feel better physically, but will feel empowered by your newfound sense of control — something I believe we all deserve.


Our sessions will consist of exploring your life-long history with food, addressing your relationship with your body, developing smart, sustainable goals, and creating a plan that is specific to you. Using a broad approach that takes into consideration culture, daily routine and responsibilities, activity level, and personal stressors will allow you to truly consider how different aspects of your life affect your food choices. Together, we will shift the focus to health and wellbeing while cultivating a happy, uncomplicated relationship with food.
