My Story

Sydney Damon, MS, RD, IBCLC

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Specialized in Women's Health

“No matter where you’re at in your journey, I’m with you and for you.”

I staunchly believe the stories we’ve lived and either consciously or unconsciously internalized surrounding food, our bodies, and who we are as women are all intimately connected to our health behaviors; they inform not only what we eat, but also WHY we eat what we do. As such, I find great value in a narrative approach to nutrition counseling that centers your individualized story.

The heart of my work is to meet you where you are and to foster a safe space for you to dig deep. Together, we will explore the underlying stories that form the intricate root systems from which your food and body thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors grow. It is then that the process of unearthing the stories that no longer serve you or support your health can begin, new ideals can take root, body wisdom can grow, sustainable changes can be made, and the healing power of food and herbs can truly be experienced.

I often describe the place I strive to practice from along this journey as the intersection of evidence-based and empathy. I wholeheartedly believe that you are the author of your story and the expert of your own body. As your Registered Dietitian, I will work with you to identify which evidence-based tools and strategies may be most supportive and empowering for you to apply to your life to achieve your nutrition-related goals.

I also recognize that getting to the root “why” of food and body distortions is incredibly brave and difficult work. These challenges are often deeply rooted and convoluted; nutrition is one of many facets comprising the garden that is your health and well-being. Thus, I value working with you as part of your health team.

No matter where you’re at in your journey, I’m with you and for you. I hope to connect soon!

Outside of my clinical work I’m my best self when I’m outdoors and in the mountains, particularly while hiking with my loved ones. Black coffee, dancing, and filling my home with an unreasonable number of houseplants are few more of my greatest joys in this life.
