Riley’s approach to care is rooted in developing a strong rapport with the client and making client’s feel safe and heard. Per her nutrition philosophy, Riley believes in nutrition care that is a mutual conversation where a client can have a say in their care, as this will lead to more sustainable, long-term progress; additionally, Riley practices from a non-diet and Health At Every Size (HAES) perspective for all clients, regardless of diagnosis. Riley prioritizes individualized treatment, tailoring interventions to meet clients developmental, financial, physical and emotional needs. Riley enjoys being creative in their interventions, utilizing DBT, somatic body-based processes, interactive experientials, and hands on activities. Ultimately, Riley strives to be a conduit between you and improving the relationship you have with food.
