What to expect in your first session with this dietitian?
We will begin our first session getting to know each other. I will ask additional questions so I can know more about your lifestyle and your personal goals. This will lay the foundation for realistic strategies we can work on together so you can begin to achieve those goals over time. I will provide some initial nutrition education so you can begin to make some initial behavior changes. We will end the visit by making sure your beginning questions are answered and setting up our platform to work together for the weeks and months to come.
Approach to care
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 10 years of counseling experience. For me, becoming a dietitian was about having the privilege to teach others about something they need every day (nutrition) and knowing any little or big amount of information they took away can make a positive change to better themselves in many aspects of life. I think, personally, as a full-time working mom, I can relate to many individuals who think they may not have the time to improve their health through diet and exercise. However, it is possible as long as they can work with me and lean into the education and motivations behind our work together. My expertise lies in working with clients in the areas of weight management, clients looking to improve their overall wellness, and the management of diabetes and heart disease.
Hobbies
I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and two kids. We love to go on walks, go fishing, take boat rides, and really anything outdoors. When I am not with them, I will usually be with my family and friends relaxing with some good food and wine. I enjoy ending the day with a book on the couch or on the front porch.
More About This Dietitian
I work with clients by guiding them to a positive relationship with food to help achieve their health and lifestyle goals. While working with me we will discover your "why" reasons for specific behaviors, especially around food. I practice nutrition by focusing on setting small goals at a time leading to long lasting and sustainable changes. My goal is to set a safe and confident space for my clients.

"This Dietitian helped me get my life back”
Gia M.

Working with Kayla has surpassed my expectations! She is such a wonderful communicator/teacher! I am SO pleased how she helps me both set and reevaluate my goals!

Denise D.

Positive: In a short period of working with Kayla, not only have I started to understand what 'diet' will be helpful for my kidney health, but her holistic approach of teaching the impact of stress, behaviors and everything beyond food has allowed me to feel more empowered to take back my health

Terry B.

Working with Kayla has boosted not only my confidence in my ability to lower my A1C but also my determination to do it. Kayla is very supportive and has provided me with such great information so that I can make better food choices. She keeps me grounded when I feel like I'm not making any progress. She provides the reality checks that I need because I can be too hard on myself. I look forward to my sessions with her because I know I'll be affirmed and supported in this journey to a new, healthier lifestyle.
