The Nourished Nutritionist- Katie Valley

HI! I'M KATIE.

I’m so happy and grateful that you’re here sharing your time and energy with me.

I am an Ann Arbor-based Holistic Nutritionist and Body Image Coach.

I’m on a mission to help women stop hating on their bodies and feeling out of control around food. 

 

As a Registered Holistic Nutrition Practitioner and Licensed Body Positive Facilitator,  I offer a unique approach. My clients:

  • Learn the strategies that ACTUALLY support optimal health

  • Ditch Restrictive Dieting and Calorie Counting 

  • Overcome emotional eating, diet mentality, and other behaviors that do not align with their goals

 

plus SO much more!

My story might sound a lot like yours; what started as an innocent desire to shed some weight, turned into an obsession with counting calories, regular weigh-ins, over-exercising, and shame-filled binging. If you asked anyone, they would describe me as a dedicated health enthusiast—but I was far from a picture of health.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I was depressed. I had low self-esteem and poor body image. I was anti-social.⠀

 

Instead of achieving the results I was so desperate for, I:

  • I damaged my metabolism

  • I messed up my digestion

  • I was exhausted all the time

  • I created multiple food sensitivities

  • I was stressed, sad, and isolated myself

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This went on for YEARS. It wasn't until I was DESPERATE for a new way to treat my body, that I shifted my mindset. Instead of focusing on ways to DEPRIVE my body- I wanted to know how I could NOURISH it. This mindset shift was LIFE CHANGING.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That' because people make changes in their life for one of two reasons: Inspiration or desperation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was finally desperate enough to admit what I was doing was not benefiting me and even more important was not HEALTHY for my body, mind or spirit. I discovered Holistic Nutrition and I learned how to nourish my body through food and movement, regardless of what the scale said.

 

With my training as a Licensed Body Positive Facilitator, it has been made clear that I was a victim of diet culture, and it's my goal to ensure I spread the message of taking care of our bodies, regardless of weight, and dispel the myth that health "looks" a certain way.

Katie is a Registered Holistic Nutrition Practitioner and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health Education. She has dedicated the past decade to helping others in various health-centered roles, including community outreach and as a Wellness Champion for a major US airline.

 

Katie is a Licensed Body Positive Facilitator and provides support in both group and one-on-one settings in order to dispel the myths of diet culture and reinforce a holistic, health-focused approach, instead of a weight focused approach.

 

She began Katie Valley Wellness in 2018 as a way to share her passion with others while providing motivation and support to those on their own health journey. She is also an instructor for Life Long Learning Classes at the local college, has partnered with Fieldstone Counseling and Wellness Center, as well as offers additional support to online programs for Naturopathic Doctor, Kimberley O'Brien.
