Kelsey Bruner Buckley

My name is Kelsey Bruner Buckley, and I am a registered dietitian who is passionate about body confidence, intuitive eating, and overall wellness. I believe that every individual has the right to feel confident and empowered in their own skin, and that a healthy relationship with food is an essential component to achieving this. I have worked with a diverse range of clients, including those with chronic diseases, eating disorders, and weight concerns as well as those who are undergoing or have undergone bariatric surgery. My approach is client-centered, and I believe in working collaboratively with my clients to develop personalized nutrition plans that fit their unique needs and lifestyles. I am an advocate of intuitive eating, a philosophy that encourages individuals to listen to their bodies and honor their hunger and fullness cues. I also believe in the power of self-care and encourage my clients to practice self-compassion and kindness towards themselves.

Approaching clients with compassion, accountability, and a focus on self-care is crucial. One of the most effective tools I use is motivational interviewing. This technique allows me to elicit the client's own reasons for wanting to make dietary changes, which can help increase their intrinsic motivation and lead to more successful outcomes. In addition, I prioritize mental health and self-care strategies as part of the overall treatment plan. It's important to recognize that making dietary changes can be challenging and may bring up difficult emotions. By incorporating strategies such as mindfulness, stress management, and self-compassion, clients can learn to manage these emotions and stay on track with their goals. Collaboration is also key. I work with clients to come up with practical, achievable solutions that fit their lifestyle and preferences. By involving clients in the decision-making process, they feel empowered and more invested in their own success.
