Meet the Team
Julia is a warm and caring Dietitian with more than 15 years of experience helping people with eating disorders. She provides dietary education and nutritional counselling to support her clients as they work to overcome disordered eating behaviours and towards freedom from eating and weight concerns.
Julia’s key belief is that recovery is possible. She works to build a relationship with her clients that is open and honest, and has a flexible, client-centred and collaborative approach. Julia has worked in specialist eating disorder units in both public and private hospitals in Melbourne and has provided individual guidance, meal support and educational groups for clients in the Eating Disorder Inpatient and Day Program at The Melbourne Clinic in Richmond for the past 12 years, in addition to her work in private practice.
Julia is passionate about preventing the onset of eating disorders in teenagers, and welcomes the opportunity to provide nutritional assessments and guidance to young people with changed eating habits, early signs of disordered eating, amenorrhea, body image concerns, the desire to become vegetarian, or who exercise excessively due to concerns about their weight. Other areas of interest include non-dieting approaches to weight management, mindful eating, discussions about new or fad diets and diet myths, pros and cons of new food products and general healthy eating advice for optimal health.
Lotta is an experienced Accredited Practising Dietitian who has a well-rounded knowledge in most areas of nutrition and dietetics (please see our services list), with a greater expertise in the areas of weight loss, diabetes, heart disease and gastrointestinal issues.
Lotta has a high level of commitment and responsibility to the care of her patients. She is very passionate and motivating in helping them achieve their goals through diet and lifestyle.
Lotta has worked in various nutrition settings throughout her career, such as Rehabilitation hospitals, Psychiatric hospitals, Gastroenterology Clinics, Bariatric Surgery Clinics and in Aged Care.
However, her passion lies in ‘one on one’ private consulting, tailoring advice for each individual, couple or family based on realistic advice suitable for their own individual lifestyle/situation. Sorting the fact from the fiction with the myriad of conflicting messages and food myths we are bombarded with on a daily basis. As well as assisting in the management and/or prevention of disease and the promotion of good health.
If we don’t take care of our bodies, where will we live?
