Kelsey Peterson, MS, RD
ASSOCIATE REGISTERED DIETITIAN
Born and raised in Southern California, I became interested in nutrition after being diagnosed with several nutrition-related health conditions of my own. After seeking answers to my ailments, I discovered my love of nutrition and never looked back! I graduated from California State University Long Beach with a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. In addition, to being a registered dietitian, I have completed my Masters of Nutritional Science as well as became a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and received direct mentorship from Evelyn Tribole. I’ve recently moved to the beautiful city of San Diego where I work part time at a residential eating disorder treatment facility and see clients at Nutrition Instincts. I am currently working towards becoming a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian.
I combine my empathetic nature, love of food, and educational background in nutrition to provide a client-centered approach to counseling. My background consists of nutrition counseling and education to those suffering from IBS, inflammatory bowel diseases, eating disorders, diabetes, and hypertension, as well as those looking for general nutrition information and weight management. I root my nutrition beliefs in evidence-based practices combined with Intuitive Eating principles. I believe that obtaining a healthy relationship with food is essential for long-lasting health and vitality.
