Meet your Nutritionist: Maya Rose, MS, CNS
I take a joy-based, judgment-free, whole foods approach to nutrition that considers the entirety of your health journey. I believe that personalization is key: while my clients may have a similar condition of celiac or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), my recommendations vary greatly depending on the person. Individualization is even more critical with any digestive condition, as our gut microbiomes are more unique to us than our fingerprints. There is no one-gut-fits-all and there is no one-diet-fits-all.
While I have strong knowledge in and clinical experience with nutritional therapy for a wide range of conditions, I am particularly devoted to supporting those with celiac and NCGS. I have seen too many instances where the education for both practitioners and celiacs + NCGS is lackluster and does not set individuals up for digestive success. I am not okay with that, because navigating a gluten-free lifestyle is our EVERYDAY, y’all! And for us, our gut health will always need a little extra TLC even beyond a gluten-free diet. My own experience has made me empathetic to these needs and passionate about getting others the support they deserve, so that they can take back their gut and overall health.
I am credentialed under the American Nutrition Association and have a Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Bastyr University, specialized clinical experience in nutrition for digestive disorders, and professional experience on the faculty and staff at a health-supportive culinary school. My background informs who I am as a practitioner, so that my recommendations are evidence-based, realistic, and delicious! Perhaps most fundamental to my practice, however, is my commitment to listening to my clients in the way I wish I was listened to for many years with my own digestive issues.
If you’re ready to live a truly fulfilling, nourishing, gluten-free life, let’s connect during a free 20-minute consultation!
Aside from being a gut health enthusiast/nerd, I also enjoy cooking and creating therapeutic recipes, dancing, making herbal concoctions, spending time with family and friends, and getting outdoors. Sunshine might be my most favorite thing of all.
Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.
