What my clients are saying...
"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."
"Working with Shay has been such a positive experience! As a person who has struggled with body image and my relationship with food, Shay has helped me embrace Intuitive Eating and get rid of a diet mentality. Her passion for what she does shows and makes me look forward to my sessions with her so I can share my "wins", knowing she'll be genuinely happy for me." - JCD
"Shay has been amazing. I knew after my first appointment with her that she's the nutritionist I need to help me improve my relationship with food. As a chronic yo-yo dieter with a disordered relationship with food, I wasn't sure what to expect as every nutirionist I have been to has put me on a diet. What a surprise working with Shay has been. I was very happy that I finally found someone qualified whose solution wasn't to put me on another diet. She set me up with what I need to start achieving my goals, has been very warm and nonjudgmental the whole time, and was always available to answer my questions between appointments. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable discussing my concerns and I couldn't believe I finally found a nutritionist with those qualities who was also a supporter of intuitive eating! Unfortunately I had to move and due to the time difference I wasnt able to keep working with her. Even after our last appointment together, she still cared enough to check in and guide me through a hard time. To me this speaks volumes about not only the kind of nutirionist she is, but also the kind of person she is! I'm very grateful to Shay and everything she has done for me, she continues to help me and I know my relationship with food is on the right track thanks to our work together."
"I worked with Shay for about 8 months. Love, love her. She is so knowledgable and gets to the root of your problem. I was one of those people who always got on the scale, and I mean every day, for at least the past 20 years. She taught me so much about Intuitive Eating and not to worry about the number on the scale. I find myself not worrying about getting on the scale. It is not in my routine anymore and I am happy about that. If I do get on randomly, it doesn't impact my actions for the day like it once did. I am in my 60s, that was not easy task. Shay gave me all the tools I needed to guide me on my new path in life. I would not hesitate to work with Shay!!"
"Shay is absolutely incredible, and unique in her approach. She genuinely wants to help people become the best versions of themselves, physically and mentally. She understands that everyone's path towards health is different and she works to ensure you're doing what's best for you and your whole self. She's liberated me from the restrictive common myths surrounding food and exercise that so many people fall victim to. Working with Shay is a safe space. No judgement. No guilt. She's helped me fall in more love with food, and even with myself."
"After 30 years of unhealthy eating habits, it was time to consult with a professional. Since working with Shay, I have more energy, sleep better and feel better about myself. I learned how to understand the food I eat and how my body works with food. She's been a wonderful source of nutritional information, while showing me how to use my own body and mind to nourish myself. Shay, thank you for teaching me this most important skill. I will be forever grateful to you!!!"
"Shay has completely changed my relationship with food. As someone who has fallen to one too many "health fads" in my life, Shay has helped me see that no celery juice diet or juice cleanse is going to make me healthier. She's helped me detach from feeling constricted in what I consume to always feeling fulfilled and free from food guilt. Working with Shay is much more than changing your eating habits, it's about a mental shift. I can truly say, Shay has made me feel mentally and physically better."
"Throughout the past year of working with Shay, I can truly say I have learned so much about my journey with food and exercise. Shay has been incredibly helpful in showing me how diet mentality has impacted my life and how to break this cycle that is no longer benefitting me. In the beginning, I weighed myself daily and was so focused with the number on the scale. However, over the last few months, I rarely weigh myself and have focused more on how my body feels more than just the number. Shay is always there to listen to any concern and challenges me to think differently about my journey with food and exercise than I had before. I would highly recommend working with Shay and I look forward to continuing to work with her as well."
"Working with Shay was such a great experience from beginning to end. She really opened my eyes to intuitive eating and helped me finally rid myself of the diet mentality. She was readily available and able to answer my questions 24/7, always providing sound advice and strategies to try on days when I felt defeated. I look forward to working with her again in the future."
"I was feeling pretty desperate when I contacted Shay Tinari. I had lost weight due to illness and was on a strict reflux diet which made gaining weight a nightmare. Shay is so knowledgeable, kind and supportive that you know she will help you. I have been seeing her for two months and am nearly back to my original weight. I couldn’t have done it without her. She is a star!"
"Shay is amazing! She has helped me change my relationship with food for the better which has had such an impact already. I cannot recommend her enough!!!"
