About Us

Our Story

Balanced Nutrition was founded in 2013 with a goal to provide reliable nutrition information and counseling to improve physical health while repairing or maintaining a relationship with food.

In 2016 Balanced Nutrition grew into Balanced Nutrition and Yoga in order to offer its clients and the community a place to practice mindfulness and body awareness—two concepts that have been at the core of the Balanced philosophy since its conception.

When individuals learn to nourish their bodies, honor their intuition, and live without judgment or shame around food, weight or shape, true physical health becomes attainable.

Balanced offers individual and group nutrition counseling for general nutrition and health management, eating disorders, sports nutrition, diabetes and more. We accept many major insurance plans including Independence Blue Cross, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care, Cigna and Aetna.

We also offer individual and group yoga classes ranging from gentle and restorative to more physical vinyasa practices. Each class is designed and modified to be acceptable for all experience levels. Classes are small, allowing for individual attention from instructors with assistance as desired.

Balanced Nutrition and Yoga is committed to its mission of providing strength-based, non-judgmental and flexible approaches to nutrition and yoga. Our focus is to teach students and clients how to honor their bodies with sensible foods and mindful movement.

What Our Clients Say

“Without reservation I highly recommend Balanced Nutrition. Natalie developed a personalized nutrition plan which has been critical to allowing me to achieve my goal of completing my first Ironman140.6. Her support helped me learn the importance of nutrient and hydration timing pre and post training and most importantly during my races. And now in the off season Natalie is helping me adjust my nutrition and hydration to cross training and my off season training regime. I strongly recommend Balanced Nutrition.”
Mark A

“My decision to work with Natalie and Balanced Nutrition over 6 months ago has proven to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.  At a point in my life where I knew that something had to change, Natalie provided a supportive, non-judgmental and empowering environment that led me to find the courage to lower my walls and be receptive to her counsel.”

Lisa C

“Natalie guided and encouraged me through years of deep nutritional and exercise-related fears and affirmed every positive step I took. She provided me the structure and nutritional framework I needed at a time where I felt I was powerless to make healthy decisions on my own.”

Lisa C

“In a relatively short amount of time, Natalie has been truly instrumental in gently guiding me towards a nutritional plan that is not only balanced and geared towards my goals, but in providing specific, real solutions to the obstacles that were preventing me from achieving my goals in so many ways.  She has taught me so much about the right way to eat for me and helped adapt my plans to challenging situations.  She also provided go-to tools that help when life gets in the way.  Most importantly, and what I think truly sets her apart, is her kindness and understanding.  In addition to her obvious in-depth knowledge about what she does, she taught me about acceptance, belief in myself and my ability to be kind to my body and most importantly, the power of balance.”

 

Amy H

“I have had the opportunity to work with many nutritionists over the years and while they were helpful none of them have provided the support and education that Natalie has been able to provide to me. She is extremely knowledgeable about proper nutrition, health and eating disorders. As a result of this she has been able to provide me with scientific evidence that explains my eating disordered thoughts and behaviours.
She is able to meet me where I’m at while continuing to challenge me. Natalie sets realistic goals with me and continuously praises me for the work I’m doing and changes I’m making. She collaborates with my Dr and my therapist so that everyone is on the same page.
Since working with Natalie I began cooking for myself. I’ve gone out to restaurants and have tried new foods as well as reintroduced foods into my meal plan.
When needed she provides ongoing support in between sessions and always finds the positive in me even when I’m really struggling. I’m grateful for such wonderful care and wish everyone was blessed enough to receive this level of treatment and care.”
