Natalie opened the doors of Balanced Nutrition LLC in 2013 with a hope to provide comprehensive nutrition counseling in an environment that is relaxed, inclusive, empowering, and free from judgment or rules around food or movement. Natalie's expertise is in eating disorders, disordered eating, and recovery from chronic dieting with prior years of experience and training at The Renfrew Center of Philadelphia.
Natalie strongly believes in the importance of collaboration and coordination with the client as well as their other care providers. She believes in a holistic approach to wellness, health, and recovery and a focus on not only physical health but also emotional, social, and spiritual health. In addition to her non-diet, weight-inclusive, health at every size approach to nutrition, Natalie also owns a yoga studio that provides small, intimate yoga classes suitable for anyone who wants to move their body in a fun and uplifting way. Lastly, Natalie has an unrivaled love of animals and often encourages her clients to bring their pets into the office as she believes in the healing properties of animals.
