Heidi Nelson, RD, LD

When I first scheduled an appointment with Heidi I thought, “She’s a dietitian, so this is going to be about dieting.” I couldn’t have been more off base. Our work together was about so many things, but unlike dieting, our work was validating, and centered me and my needs. Heidi gently guided me through my longtime eating beliefs and patterns, and helped me see what I need, and what serves my body and my life. She helped me develop tools, not for restricting and denying, but tools for celebrating myself and my successes. I had no idea how huge this work would be for me. I am so grateful to Heidi and our work together!
— Client T.M.

Hi, I'm Heidi. As an "anti-diet" dietitian, I am fiercely passionate about helping others create flexible, joyful eating habits and cultivate a peaceful relationship with their body. Through my practice, I work with clients to create effective strategies and individualized solutions to nourish a life of freedom and ease around food and body. I help clients connect to their body's needs without rigidity and restriction, and to learn to relate to themselves with self-compassion instead of shame and self-loathing.

I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and completed the Didactics Program in Dietetics at the University of Northern Colorado. I then completed my Dietetic Internship at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, hiking, yoga, stand up paddleboarding, and walking with my dogs, Daisy and Tiki.
