Jamie is a registered dietitian specialized in the treatment of eating disorders. Born and raised in Toronto, Jamie completed her Bachelors in Dietetics and accreditation at McGill University and stayed in Montreal to join the Ordre des diététistes nutritionnistes du Québec (ODNQ), and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in the United States (AND).  As a part of the BIPOC and AAPI (Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders) community, Jamie greatly understands how culture and traditions intertwine with food and nutrition, and practises inclusive care with all clients.

 

 

With an emphasis on both physical and mental wellbeing, Jamie believes that good health is always multi-factorial, and that there is no health without mental health.  She supports the Health-at-Every-Size® movement and fosters a safe space for her clients so that they can progress at their own pace without judgment. She has received training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Family Based Treatment (FBT), often using a combination of these approaches in her treatment or nutrition care for eating disorders, and to assist clients in exploring their relationship with food, body, and weight.

 

 

In conjunction with clinical nutrition, Jamie has also been greatly involved in the food and snack industry. She understands its complexity, the ties to diet culture and the harmful impact it can have on one’s relationship with food. In Jamie’s practise, she uses her well-rounded view to support clients in recovery, developing a mindful approach to eating, and a more flexible relationship with food in order to achieve their goals. Jamie currently offers supervision to healthcare professionals for professional support, development and collaborative learning. Jamie is bilingual in French and English and provides insurance receipts.
