Fannie is a committed dietitian who uses the HAES® approach and intuitive eating to talk about nutrition, lifestyle and health with her clients.

 

During her master’s degree in dietetics at McGill University, she developed a growing interest in eating disorders and completed her last internship at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute.

 

As a member of the ODNQ, she began her career in a rehabilitation hospital setting with patients who had strokes, burns or amputations. Inspired by intuitive eating, she accompanied them in their recovery by advising them on beneficial ways to eat according to their condition.

 

Fannie then joined the Sööma team to deepen her experience and expertise in the treatment of eating disorders. Since then, she has accompanied people who want to improve their relationship with food and weight.

 

During her years of practice, Fannie has pursued training to better support her clients according to their needs. She is now equipped to support families of young people struggling with eating disorders using nutritional treatment according to the FBT (Family Based Treatment) approach. She is also trained in nutritional treatment using the ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) approach, which allows her to support people seeking to develop a relationship with food and their body in line with their personal values. Her most recent training has led her to understand the reality of neurodivergent individuals and the difficulties they may encounter with food. Fannie is now equipped to support them through neurodivergent affirmative practices, allowing them to have a diet tailored to their needs.

 

Fannie works with her clients to help them feel freedom in their relationship with food and their bodies. With kindness, she guides them to become more aware of what influences their eating habits while helping them understand what works best for their health, both physical and mental. Fannie is bilingual in French and English.

 

Fannie is a member of the Order of Dietitians Nutritionists of Quebec (ODNQ).

Outside of work you can find me:

  • Going to music concerts and festivals to dance or discover new artists
  • Moving in new and fun ways (yoga, muay thaï, trail running)
  • Spending time with friends analyzing the latest movie, show or art exhibition we just saw together
  • Being in awe of nature, basking in the sun, smelling flowers and lean on a tall tree

One of my favorite quotes:

“Self-care is not self-indulgence; it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
