Nutritional counseling goes beyond a simple assessment of what someone is eating or what their labs might reveal and instead focuses on the more complete picture of a person’s physical and emotional nourishment. Nutritional counseling can help people make manageable, yet meaningful, changes in their intake to support their overall well-being. Sessions are designed to help people work toward their nutritional goals and to heal their relationship with food and their bodies.
Gatewell offers nutritional assessment, medical nutrition therapy, and nutritional counseling in Miami and online throughout the country. Our registered dietitian/nutritionist, Christine Tellez, RDN, works with children, adolescents, and adults and offers customized care for a variety of concerns. Appointments with Christine can occur independently or in conjunction with other services at Gatewell.
Christine is trained in Intuitive Eating, a modality that helps people restore their innate eating wisdom. Intuitive eating encourages people to stop dieting, reduce judgments around “good” and “bad” foods, honor their hunger and fullness, find kind and supportive ways of coping with emotions, engage in joyful movement, respect their bodies, and attend to their health. The paradigm celebrates body diversity, acceptance, and trust.
In addition to her work with intuitive eating, Christine offers assessment and counseling around the following areas/concerns:
- Eating disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN), Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED), Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
- Weight concerns
- Women’s nutrition
- Adolescent nutrition
- Healthy eating
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Celiac disease
If you are struggling with your relationship with food, have medical concerns, or simply want to learn how to integrate more nutritious options whether at home or eating out, nutritional counseling might be the right choice for you. We offer individual sessions, as well as a three-session package for new clients. Contact us to learn more about Christine’s approach and how working with her can help you meet your nutritional goals.
