Kimberly Novotny


My Approach

Kimberly helps her patients improve their relationship with food and their body. She uses an individualized, patient-centered approach and motivational interviewing when working with her patients. She believes that all foods have a place in a well-balanced diet and that small but powerful changes over time will help individuals reach their goals. She supports her patients by providing a framework for reconnecting with their body and focusing on nourishment and intuitive eating. She challenges diet culture which promotes negative behaviors and thoughts around food and body image while assisting patients in feeling confident in their food choices. She prides herself in being open and empathetic with her patients and building long lasting relationships. Kimberly enjoys working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families on a range of food-related issues, including eating disorder recovery, self-esteem and body image, food allergies and intolerances, diabetes management, cardiovascular conditions, pre- and post-natal nutrition, and general wellness.
