Sophia Tasler, RDN, CD
As a Certified Body Trust® Provider, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree from Bastyr University, I highly value a holistic approach to wellness. Having struggled with choosing the “perfect” food and feeling the societal pressure to be “practically perfect in every way,” I recognize how difficult it can be to strike balance with food, body image and health in this current climate of an image obsessed diet culture.
Challenging diet culture (along with its various tendrils in systems of oppression) and integrating the wisdom of various modalities to nurture a client’s journey towards embodiment is my passion. Food can be an integral piece of the healing process from which various medicines, pleasures, and healings become rooted.
Food’s healing ability is powerful, dynamic, and at times mysterious. Technology is still trying to unlock the sophisticated science of food. Food connects us to nature and to community. Yet, if we become rigid and bogged down by pseudoscience food rules it can be difficult for the body to access the healing. Regaining trust in the body after being so disconnected and information overloaded can be scary. It is with this deep respect of nature’s timeless healing technology, the slow unfurling of trust work, and our body's innate desire to find balance that I help clients along their food and body journey.
Weight inclusive nutrition therapy is routinely applied to eating disorder recovery, breaking the cycle of diet-culture-based eating patterns and belief systems, diabetes care, cardiovascular health, digestive support, and navigating food allergies and intolerances. My nutrition counseling style is gentle yet direct, calming yet inspiring. I incorporate intersectional feminism, Health At Every Size® Principles, fat liberation and affirmation, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, self-compassion, Intuitive Eating and Body Trust® practices with every session.
My goal with each client is to share the tools, teachings, experiences, and reflection spaces to cultivate a more harmonious life with food and body.
