Who We Are
Carli Hill, RDN, CD
I have been a registered dietitian nutritionist for over 15 years. Over and over again, I see the value and joy of taking a whole person approach to nutrition counseling. With hope and compassion I assist my clients to achieve their goals.
I have worked in a variety of settings, seeing clients with many different types of nutrition needs. However, I began seeking out specialized training related to disordered eating, Health At Every Size, and Intuitive Eating when I saw a specific need in my community. I found that the principles in these models aligned with my philosophy of a whole person approach to nutrition.
I enjoy working closely with other members of the healthcare team to provide comprehensive care to each of my clients. I work with my clients to come up with individualized nutrition goals, and I empower them to take charge of their own nutrition and health.
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Seattle Pacific University and completed my Dietetic Internship at Central Washington University.
My Areas of Focus Include:
Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating
Health At Every Size®
Outside of work, I enjoy horseback riding, and being outdoors with my husband, two children, and a menagerie of critters. I also believe that laughter truly is great medicine and enjoy finding new books, movies, and experiences with family and friends that foster joy. One of my current missions is delving into the world of Dungeons and Dragons with a group of friends.
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and functional medicine nutritionist with a credential in Integrative and Functional Nutrition (IFNCP) with a passion for making complex nutrition issues make sense. I practice from a Health at Every Size perspective and emphasize intuitive eating and mindfulness through my nutrition care process. I lead with compassion and understanding and focus on supporting a nourishing relationship with food, movement, and the body.
I specialize in disordered eating, eating disorders, digestive disorders and gastrointestinal health, culinary nutrition, women’s health, and body image concerns.
Within these specialty areas, I utilize a whole-person and trauma-informed approach to nutrition, observing and addressing the body as well as the mind and the environment to create a well-rounded and evidence-based approach to wellness. I view food as an ally, something that should be exciting, delicious, and nourishing in every way. I believe that integrating mental health and self-understanding into a nutrition plan is vital in establishing healthy patterns that can be sustained over a lifetime. I am dedicated to supporting each client’s individualized nutrition journey and to providing support for each person to feel empowered to take control of their own health. Overall, I celebrate courage and human connection and see these as foundational to living a full, meaningful life.
Outside of work, you can find me tending to my garden and small flock of birds (chickens, ducks, etc.), being a mad scientist in the kitchen, cuddling with my cats, trying to finish four books at once, collecting cool rocks to precariously stack around my house, and spending time with my partner, family, and friends.
Dr. Lea McKinstry, ND
I am a naturopathic physician who focuses on digestion and women's health. I approach medicine in an integrative and functional manner, using both natural and conventional treatments. I believe that optimal health begins with good foundations, including good food, clean water, fun movement, restful sleep and connecting with nature. I enjoy working with patients on their healing journeys, supporting, coaching, guiding, and counseling them to whole-body health and happiness.
While studying at Bastyr University, a friend and dietitian introduced me to Health at Every Size® and Intuitive Eating. I went on to seek out further training of these models that aligned with the naturopathic principle of treating the whole person. Making peace with food and our bodies is a fundamental right everyone deserves.
My Areas of Focus Include:
Women’s Health and Hormones
HAES and Intuitive Eating
Stress Management & Fatigue
When I am not in the office, I can be found adventuring in nature with my husband and 2 boys, either up in the mountains, hiking, skiing, biking, or down at the beach, swimming, kayaking, and reading on the couch at the end of a busy day.
