Fannie is a young dietitian who uses the HAES® approach and intuitive eating to talk about nutrition, lifestyle and health with her patients. Having first graduated in Biological Sciences from the University of Montreal, she is sensitive to the impact that our food choices can have on the environment.

During her Masters in Nutrition, she developed a growing interest in eating disorders and did her last internship at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute. There, she learned different approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Family Based Treatment to help patients improve their relationship with food.

As a member of the OPDQ, she began her career in rehabilitation with patients who have had strokes, burns or amputations. Drawing inspiration from intuitive eating, she accompanied them on their journey by advising them on beneficial ways to eat according to their condition.

Fannie joined the Sööma team to deepen her experience and expertise in the treatment of eating disorders and to be able to support people affected by problematic relationships with food and their weight. 

Since then, Fannie has received specialty training to better support her clients  according to their needs. She is now equipped to support families of young people struggling with eating disorders by using FBT (Family Based Treatment) and uses this approach in her nutrition follow-ups. In addition, Fannie is trained in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), which allows her to support  people seeking to develop a relationship with food and their body consistent with their personal values. 

Fannie works with her clients to make them feel freedom in their relationship with food and their bodies. With benevolence, she guides them to become more aware of what influences the way they eat while helping them understand what works best for their health, both physical and mental. Fannie is bilingual in French and English and provides insurance receipts.
