Katie Southworth, MS, RDN, CD

Functional Medicine Nutritionist

Katie has been working in the field of nutrition for over eight years in addition to serving as an adjunct professor for the teaching clinic at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. Katie believes that patients have intuitive power to know what is best for their health but struggle to understand and make the behavior change required to meet their goals. Katie knows that one eating plan cannot be right for everyone so she works with patients to discover what foods best support their own personal health and healing. Katie’s clinical focus areas include but are not limited to, weight management, autoimmune disease, gut health, food allergies/sensitivities, women’s health, and chronic disease.
