Julie also graduated from and is credentialed by an intensive training and education program through the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy. In addition she completed two esteemed Food As Medicine trainings through The Center For Mind-Body Medicine.
With this up to date, evidence-based, state of the art education Julie has found a additional meaning for the way she has always looked at “food as medicine”.
For years she has studied and integrated the psychology of eating into her work and has loved treating her patients with a keen understanding of psychological, spiritual and emotional aspects of our relationship to food and our bodies. After decades of working with a strong psychological approach she recognized that her love of the science of nutrition was calling her back and she engaged deeply in Functional and Integrative Nutrition training. After graduating from the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy and years of experience in Integrative and Functional Nutrition Julie was asked to become an IFNA mentor for practitioners working with the intersection of eating disorders and integrative nutrition principals.
