Katie Southworth, MS, RDN
Katie is a graduate of Bastyr University, where she received a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics as well as a Master’s in Clinical Health Psychology. Katie has been working in the field of nutrition for more than eight years, with a focus that has ranged from weight management and corporate wellness to oncology. She has also served as an adjunct professor for the teaching clinic at The Bastyr Center for Natural Health.
Katie’s clinical focus areas are:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Chronic disease
- Digestive health
- Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
- Thyroid health
- Women’s health
- Food allergies/sensitivities
- Weight management
Katie believes that one eating plan does not necessarily fit everyone and patients need to discover what foods best support their own personal health and healing. She believes patients intuitively know what is best for their health but struggle to make the behavioral change required to reach their goals. Katie is passionate about guiding her patients through this process and understands the challenges they face, not only when making dietary changes but also when dealing with chronic diseases.
Katie also sees clients for our Metabolic Reset Program that focuses on biochemical processes, allowing you to reset your metabolic rate while you burn fat as energy. The program is based on four principles: balanced blood sugar, using body fat as an energy source, emotional support, and physical movement. Learn more about Metabolic Reset here.
When she is not in the clinic she can be found experimenting in the kitchen, practicing yoga, hiking in the mountains or playing in the water with her family. She has a deep appreciation for a good bar of dark chocolate.
