Sessions With Lindsay

As a registered dietitian nutritionist and functional and integrative nutrition practitioner, her primary focus is working with people struggling with autoimmune diseases and gut issues. Beginning with a comprehensive assessment tool, she explores your symptoms and then begins to develop a nutritional plan that is sustainable for your lifestyle to optimize symptom relief.

It is Lindsay’s goal to have her clients  thrive with autoimmune illnesses and enjoy a greater quality of life. 

Living with Autoimmune

My passion for helping others with such illnesses began with my own journey of struggling with, living with, and now thriving, with multiple autoimmune diseases. I personally understand the frustration of experiencing numerous symptoms, visiting multiple doctors, and receiving various medical responses.

From sorting through recommendations of medications, to supplements, or even being told there is no solution, or “It’s all in your head,”—it can all be quite overwhelming. The pivotal moment in my healing was when I realized, and experienced, how nutrition plays a deep role in my physical health and well-being.

Lindsay’s Approach

Autoimmune disease are complex and present differently for each person. From sorting through recommendations of food choices, supplements, to even being told there is no solution, or “it’s all in your head,”—it can be completely overwhelming. 

Lindsay takes an integrative and functional approach with her clients by looking at the root causes of symptoms. She addresses all aspects of a client’s lifestyle, including nutrition, stress, sleep, movement, and mind/body practices.

Managing chronic illness can be exhausting, confusing, and lonely. And the journey to healing is not always a straight line. Lindsay offers ongoing support to help her clients reach greater healing and better quality of life.
