Valerie is a registered dietitian passionate about eating behaviors and Health at Every Size®. Having completed a bachelor’s degree in Behavioural Neuroscience from Concordia University, Valerie was intrigued to further her education and completed a Masters in Nutrition at McGill University.

During her masters she completed her internship at Sööma, and at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, where she gained first-hand experience on different approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Valerie uses these therapies along with an intuitive eating approach when working with clients.
