Navigating the impacts of diet culture can feel overwhelming. You don't have to go through it alone! I will help you develop skills, resilience, and self-compassion so that you can build trust with your body.
I strive to create a safe and supportive environment, and I value that you are the expert of your own experience and your own life.
I implement a client-centred approach in order to develop individualized nutrition care plans, and guide you towards food and body neutrality.

Claire has been a Registered Dietitian since 2016 and specializes in supporting clients across the lifespan to heal their relationship with food and body. Claire is a graduate of the University of Guelph, the London Health Sciences Dietetic Internship Program, and is an active member of the College of Dietitians of Ontario. Using a weight-inclusive, non-diet approach, Claire empowers her clients to fight against diet culture.
The Balanced Practice has evolved to a team of registered dietitians and therapists on a mission to support folks in finding their perfect balance between food, body and mind. We believe that we cannot talk about food without addressing our mindset, beliefs and emotions. We work with our clients to help them walk away from diets, recover from their eating disorder and learn to reconnect to themselves so they can live their fullest life.
Our approach is weight inclusive, sexuality & gender affirming, trauma-informed and anti diet culture. We firmly believe that health is not reserved for any body type and that your recovery is possible.
Because life is too short to struggle with your relationship with food & your body.
The Balanced Practice was founded by Marie-Pier, who after struggling with an eating disorder, noticed a gap in our healthcare system. Through her recovery, she noticed that treatment was often not inclusive, non collaborative or client centered and often offered only short term support.
