Biography:

Ms. Lindsey Shaffer is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) who earned her Master’s Degree (MA) in Nutrition and Dietetics from Northern Illinois University. Lindsey works with all age ranges, and has a specific interest in helping individuals and families find balanced approaches to wellness through integrated care.

Therapeutic Focus & Approach:

Lindsey’s philosophy is that happiness should be the primary focus when striving for wellness. With goal setting and accountability being the cornerstones of healthy choices, she uses Motivational Interviewing (MI) and client-centered approaches to help clients achieve a positive relationship with food. Due to her experience and training (i.e., her Graduate Certificate in Eating Disorders and Weight Management) with Eating Disorders, Lindsey is acutely aware of unhealthy attitudes towards diets and body image. Therefore, Lindsey is a strong advocate for changing social constructs surrounding what wellness actually is and how nutrition plays a role.
