September has always been my favourite month of the year. Not only is the weather usually lovely here in Calgary (I’m knocking on wood right now), and the colours beautiful, but I also think of September as a new beginning or a “fresh start”. Around this time of year, I make it a priority to set new goals, both personal and professional, and decide what’s working for me and what’s not.
I’ve been lucky enough to spend almost a year and a half at home with my two little ones, which has also given me a chance to focus on my blog over at the Yummy Mummy Club and some exciting freelance writing projects. Over the past few months, however, I’ve been feeling the desire to work with clients one on one again (you’re likely not surprised if you know me at all!). I started brainstorming about how I could possibly re-open the doors to my private practice, while still being at home part-time with my kids. Feeling defeated and out of feasible options, I received an e-mail from the Director at a Calgary-based medical clinic asking if I’d be interested in joining the team and providing personal nutrition counseling on a part-time basis. Somehow the timing, the scheduling, and our philosophies lined up–it was the perfect fit!
I’m thrilled to announce that I will be joining the exceptional team at the Calgary Weight Management Centre as one of their Registered Dietitians/Nutrition Counselors as of September 15th, 2014 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I will be counseling both adults and children in the areas of healthy weight loss, weight management, disordered eating patterns and Eating Disorders. As most of you know, I use a non-diet approach to counseling, focusing on teaching my clients to eat intuitively and mindfully, trusting their bodies first and foremost.
I will also have the opportunity to take on a few extra clients per week in the areas of prenatal/postnatal nutrition, infant/child nutrition, picky eating, fertility and PCOS, and gastrointestinal disorders. Please check out the details here!
As a bonus, my work schedule will allow me time to continue my blogging and writing- something that makes me very happy (and will hopefully make you happy too)!
A huge THANK YOU to all of you who read, like and share my work. I appreciate your support and following more than you know.
