I’m Shay Tinari, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor passionate about helping people recover from disordered eating and eating disorders to live a nourished and confident life with food and themselves.
I practice from a weight-inclusive lens, meaning instead of focusing on weight, I focus on health promoting behaviors to help people improve their mental and physical health.
My goal is to free you from the cycle of dieting and yo-yo weight loss, to rediscover the pleasures of eating and movement through a well-defined, evidence-based model called Intuitive Eating, all while improving your overall health and wellbeing.
"Before working with Shay I was jumping from diet to diet, frustrated that I was never getting the full results I was looking for or just not being able to sustain "the results." After being diagnosed with Hashimotos and hypothyroidism, the weight had piled on and was even more difficult to lose. I had started following her on Instagram after a mutual friend had posted about her new Instagram while I was in the midst of the "feel good" beginning of a new diet. As I saw post after post from her and as I started to realize the diet was not the sustainable lifestyle that was promised, I realized I need to stop dieting all together and rebuild my relationship with food and my body. I attended one of her information sessions and knew right away that I wanted to work with Shay. I booked my first appointment soon after and I am so happy I did. Shay took the time to really learn about me and held space each and every session I had for me to unpack all the feelings I had around food, exercise, and my body. She gave me the tools to work through the bad days where my thoughts seem to take over and is always there to celebrate my wins. I am so grateful to have found Shay and been able to work with her over the last 6 months. Though it is a continuous journey towards being an intuitive eater, I feel prepared to take on anything because of the work I have done with her. If you are hesitant to start your own intuitive eating journey, I promise Shay is the one you want to start this journey with as she will be the best cheerleader and coach for what you need."
