Allison has been my dietitian for around two years now and let’s just be honest, I would not be here these two years without her nor a lifetime that I didn’t see. She isn’t just a dietitian to me; she’s that coach, that wing woman, the person to get me together once again. When you go see Allison it isn’t just seeing a dietitian and talking about food, it really is about talking about what food does for you, and throughout the last couple years she made me believe that food actually gives me life. You have to be able to experience that life that food gives. Allison saw right through me from the very start and with her personal touch and hand outreaching it got me to where I am today.
The past two years I’ve had my very, very low lows and some very high peaks, and Allison was there throughout the entire thing. The random freak outs and the 5 PM "I did it's!" She never left. I may only see her for an hour a week but I know that she cares about me 24/7. I can’t count how many times I’ve texted her when I wanted to give up and she never let me. I know that I’m very lucky and blessed to have her as a dietitian. I just know that means how successful she is at her career. Before Allison I was struggling more than words can say, and food was the enemy to my entire identity. No matter how many levels of care I went through, Allison was always the best. With all the laughs, all the cries, all of the thick and thin in between I am a success story and I truly never thought I would ever be here, but Allison told me at my very lowest that I would recover one day if I accepted that I deserve it. She met me on my level and to be honest it was a very low level. I still have no idea how she motivated me, but she did in her own way.
"Nourish to flourish." She told me this two years ago and I kept it in my phone till this day. It isn’t just about nourishing your body with “complex carbs and protein”, it’s about nourishing your mind in order to bring you life again. That’s exactly what recovery did for me. Recovery is possible. You just have to accept you deserve it once and for all. Go to Allison and start your journey too.
Allison helped me so much through my extensive disordered eating habits. She made me feel valued and accepted and gave me countless resources throughout our meetings. I truly feel that if I had not begun to see her, I would be no where near the recovery journey that I am currently on. I recommend her services to anyone with any eating disorder concerns! She is amazing.
Allison is brilliant! She is compassionate, grounded, knowledgeable and elegantly straightforward. Truly invested in her clients and work. I highly recommend to have Allison on your team for whatever reason; navigating through this diet culture centered world.
Allison is a great balance of kindness and understanding and this, coupled with her vast knowledge of all aspects of nutrition and food issues, makes her a valuable asset to the Lansing area. I would highly recommend her.
My first time ever doing nutritional therapy, and it was amazing! She’s very kind, sweet and non judgmental which I loved. I felt very comfortable talking with her about what I would like to be changed and she has already been helping in so many ways. I will continue to see Allison to meet my goals! :) highly recommended!
I met Allison once I finally decided to seek help for my eating disorder. I am so happy that I found her and Crossroads Nutrition Therapy. Allison made me feel valued and accepted; something that people with disorder eating thoughts don't often have. She provided me with many resources and "homework assignments" throughout our meetings. I do not think I would be anywhere near where I am in recovery if I did not start seeing Allison. I would highly recommend her!
Allison is amazing. She is very patient and listens to your needs. I have learned a lot of the science behind what food does for us. With that science I am being pushed slowly out of my comfort zone for the better. Allison is the best nutritionist I have seen.
Allison is amazing! I have been going to her since the beginning of this year. She is so kind, and welcoming. I have had a wonderful journey to getting to where I want to be, because of her help! Highly recommended!
