Emmilia Smith, MS, RDN
Registered Dietician Nutritionist | Stress Management Specialist | Chronic Disorder Specialist
Emmilia’s passion for integrative medicine and whole foods nutrition has evolved throughout her life and career. Like many of her clients, she grew up learning from various outlets that wellness should look and behave a certain way. After learning the transformative impact of integrative functional nutrition through her education at Bastyr University, and witnessing the shame, confusion, and damage that can come from a narrow approach to health through her work with patients, it has become clear to her that one size does not fit all.
With a Health At Every Size approach, Emmilia aims to guide clients to uncover any imbalances within their health through an evidence-based holistic lens. She employs the power of science, mindfulness, and intrinsic motivation to propel her clients toward their goals. She feels her success as a functional medicine nutritionist comes from her ability to empathize with others. She honors every person’s needs and personal relationship with food. Her goal as a nutrition counselor is to dismantle the belief that a person has to fit a certain mold and empower her clients to believe that they are worthy of nourishing and loving their own unique body.
To fully understand and integrate mindfulness into her practice, she is currently working on becoming a certified mindful eating practitioner through The Center for Mindful Eating.
Emmilia’s Clinical Focuses are:

When Emmilia is not in the office, she can be found playing with her cat, reading romance novels, walking/jogging around her neighborhood, and cooking with her partner. She is a big enneagram nerd and loves discussing and guessing people’s personality types.
