About Emily Hou
Before becoming a registered dietitian, I struggled with restrictive behaviors such as cutting out certain food groups and over-exercising. I was lucky to have discovered dietetics because it was only then that I began my journey towards food freedom. Today, I am able to enjoy ALL foods (there are NO good and bad foods) and do exercises and activities that serve my body and mental health. I would love to work with you to help you feel your best without being confined by food rules, and the over-information we get exposed to every single day about the "do's and don'ts" of how you must direct your nutrition.
Life can be stressful enough and eating should not be one of the reasons. I pride myself in helping clients unlearn food rules and habits, and gain the same food freedom that I achieved, through intuitive eating. I don't believe that there's a cookie cutter formula to do this, rather, I individualize my recommendations to fit your unique lifestyle and cultural preferences. Improved food habits can particularly help impact mood, depression and hormonal conditions within the body.
Food can mean so much more than what's on your plate. It can be a means to connect with family, culture, people, and celebrate the tastes you love and my goal is to help you stay connected with it, in a way that doesn't take away from the fun, but still leaves you feeling confident about your own mental health and body.
