THOLIA DAVILA (SHE/HER)
Hi! I'm Tholia (she/her), a queer, neurodivergent, mixed-chicana (not yet Spanish speaking), abolitionist, I am still currently a registered dietitian based in Redlands, California; Stolen land of the Cahuilla Nation.
But I will not be renewing my dietitian registration in a couple of years in order to build a radical new type of support.
I will be operating as a nutrition coach and offering free, donation based online nutrition classes where we learn together and in person and online support groups periodically.
I specialize in guiding people to have a healthier relationship with food, body, and exercise. I also strive to support social justice, equity, and systemic change.
I am an experienced registered dietitian with mental health and trauma related nutrition issues, including but not limited to eating "disorders" and feeding "disorders".
Mental health and trauma can affect our relationship with food and our bodies, let's work together to get back to a place of peace with food, our body, and exercise.
I work with children, adolescents and adults of any gender. This is a brave, learning space for people of all sizes, backgrounds, genders, and differences.
If you have ever felt guilt and shame around food, your body, exercise, you are not alone. Eating and moving in a way that supports the wellbeing of your mind and body and the community should never come with guilt and shame. Learn how to fight systems of oppression by embracing your pleasure, rest, and power.
I know how scary it can be to talk about food and body stuff. You are welcome here. I support your full body autonomy.
