Meet Our Team

Annika Garman

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor

Having spent the past 10+ years in a hospital setting, I can confirm how complicated, confusing, and oppressive healthcare and wellness spaces can be.  Rooted in a firm belief that everyone deserves a fulfilling relationship with self-nourishment and recognizing the many factors that destabilize our embodiment, I want to help you find peace and balance with food, body, and your health.

APPROACH

You deserve healthcare advocates who are knowledgeable, dedicated, compassionate, and understand the many factors that contribute to your well-being.  I will honor your life’s experiences so that you may define your health in a way that is sustainable, fulfilling, and free of guilt or shame.  Together we will unlearn, explore, and re-learn to trust our body’s intelligence.  The best way we can honor ourselves is to honor our own experiences.
