      The confidence to eat a more nutritious diet

      Working with Kelli McKenna has given me and my wife the confidence to eat a more nutritious diet. In a kind, nonjudgmental, empathetic way, she is adept at handling the dynamics of a couple. She is very knowledgeable and shows her appreciation at every session. Kelli is excellent at coming up with individualizing goals that my wife and I can work on together.

      Release the guilt and shame
      Nataliya has helped me release the guilt and shame that I often carry surrounding things that I’ve eaten, and she’s helped me to realize that I’m making gains even when I can’t see them.

      hi there!

      I’m Julia

      Owner of Werth Your While Nutrition

      For years I battled picky eating (my parents right alongside me) which later developed into an eating disorder and stressed relationship with food and exercise. After recovering, I knew I wanted to help other individuals and families rediscover the joy in eating that I had finally found after years of meal-time meltdowns. In 2019, I launched Werth Your While Nutrition with that goal in mind. Today, we are a 4-dietitian team working together to serve children, teens and adults that struggle with disordered eating.
