Hi, I’m Sarah West! I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Licensed in CT and owner of Food 1st Nutrition. A graduate from the University of Saint Joseph, West Hartford, CT, and completed the dietetic internship with Morrison Healthcare. I live in Wallingford with my life partner and 2 cats.
I chose to become a dietitian because I love food and I want to help people. Diet culture has us all feeling like we aren’t good enough. I’m here to help you realize you are enough. I want to help you feel comfortable with your food choices, quiet the food police in your head and around you. And help you to live your happiest and healthiest life.
Through 1-on-1 counseling, I create a safe space for you to open yourself up to food freedom. Together we will create a plan to help you change your food habits, feel comfortable in your body, and take action today that will improve your tomorrow.
I will be an advocate for you when working with your healthcare team. As a specialist in food and body image issues, I promote self-care and self-compassion. I will collaborate with your team to support your health.
