About Gayla

Welcome to my new website! I help people learn to eat in a way that matches what they need. Whether I am seeing clients in my office or working with them on the phone, my focus is to provide practical and thoughtful guidance designed to respect the unique needs of each client.

I am a Registered Dietitian, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, and licensed nutritionist in the state of Montana. I have training in motivational interviewing, am graduate of the Food as Medicine course at the Center for Mind Body Medicine and have been a Certified Diabetes Educator for over 20 years. This broad range of experience and training allows me to offer each person the tools they need to improve how they eat.

My work with clients goes beyond improving their nutrition knowledge by helping them build positive experiences with food and eating. My clients find my non -judgmental approach key to moving past their negative perceptions about dieting and food restrictions. I am dedicated to helping my clients feel more satisfied with the way they care for their bodies and helping them develop the skills that improve their health.

I serve clients concerned about:

  • Intuitive & Mindful Eating
  • Wellness & Prevention (increasing energy and improving mental clarity)
  • Healthy Weight
  • Emotional and Distracted Eating
  • Heart Health (high cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides)
  • Food Allergies and Intolerances
  • Eating Disorders (binge eating, anorexia, bulimia)
  • Managing Blood Sugar (diabetes type 2, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome)
