Meet Cecily

I’m a functional nutritionist, health coach, foodie and outdoor enthusiast living in Bend, Oregon. I have a Master’s in Clinical Nutrition and Integrative Health and am specialized in gut health, hormone health, blood chemistry and HTMA.

I healed my own gut issues, hormone imbalances and thyroid condition with nutrition and lifestyle changes and it is my passion to help others do the same. I utilize a modern, holistic approach to help each of my clients get to the root cause of their symptoms and chronic health issues.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
– Hippocrates

My Philosophy

My practice is based upon functional and integrative medicine principles. Every body is unique, and therefore every protocol needs to be created accordingly. To accomplish this, I take the time to get to know my clients extensively during our initial consultation and throughout our time together.

In order to fully address what’s going on with your health we must look at the body holistically. Therefore, I not only address nutrition but we will also discuss lifestyle recommendations and mindfulness tools as these are an essential part of healing. This, along with consistent, motivational coaching and realistic goal setting is what sets the foundation for creating long-lasting behavior change.

"I started having stomach issues about five years ago. With this came hormonal imbalances, fatigue, and severe brain fog. Over the years, I visited multiple specialists including a naturopath. After endless food eliminations, testing, medicines, none of these resolved my issues long term. In early 2022, I started working with Cecily. After a thorough call and surveys, I was provided a plan targeted towards getting my gut health back on track. Within a month, my hormonal issues resolved, my stomach pains decreased, and my overall well being significantly improved. Something that stood out about Cecily was her dedication to get to the root of the problem. She spent time to understand when and why I had spikes in symptoms. Her diet plan was easy to understand, included recommended recipes, and aligned with ingredients I already had in my kitchen. If you are considering discussing your situation with a professional, Cecily is your woman!"

“Cecily, first and foremost THANK YOU! Thank you for being patient, understanding, and gentle throughout this entire journey of gut health and nutrition. I think of this as very personal and Cecily allowed me to feel safe in this space with her. Secondly, in a time where we have access to so much information about what’s good for us and what’s not so good for us…Cecily helped to simplify my nutritional goals and made it less overwhelming. She created a personalized plan for me based on my body and symptoms. She took the time to really listen to what I was feeling and made a plan of action. I feel as though I have a better understanding of gut health, foods that improve or challenge my gut, and how to maintain improving my gut health. Not only that, but I also learned more about how to live a healthier “everyday.” Cecily, I am so grateful for you because you are passionate about what you do and have dedicated your time to helping those in need. I feel as though you will always be someone I turn for more holistic nutrition and women’s health information! Thank you!”

Dayna P.

“Cecily helped me understand that there CAN be a balance of the foods you love and the foods that are good for you. After working with Cecily I no longer have anxiety questioning which foods will make me (tired, bloated, sick, etc.) - it’s not a mystery anymore trying to figure out what to eat! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable in her field, but she is also adaptable to me as an individual and I think that is a unique quality that is hard to find in the medical and health industries. I’m so thankful to have worked with Cecily over the last 3 months and look forward to continuing my health and wellness journey with her!”

Kelly P.

“Before working with Cecily, I was struggling with acne and skin irritation/ inflammation, poor digestion and stomach issues, poor sleep/ waking up in middle of the night and not falling back to sleep. Since working with her, my skin has gotten so much better! No more acne or red, itchy skin, I sleep through the night without waking up, I can jump out of bed in the morning without snoozing for an hour. Cecily helped me identify what foods were making me feel bad and sluggish, and gave me the tools to make better choices to feel my best each day. She has really changed my outlook on my health and my life and I couldn’t be happier that I invested in this nutrition program and myself!"

Isabel W.

"Absolutely love working with Cecily. I did the 6 month program with her and it helped SO much with my energy, skin, and period issues. She did functional lab testing including a GI MAP and hormone panel and talked me through all the imbalances I've been struggling with for years and how to best address each of them. I've been feeling more energetic, my skin is clearer, periods are less painful, and I have less inflammation. She is also super kind and supportive, and was really thoughtful about coming up with a plan that worked for me and met my needs. Can't recommend her enough!"

Arianne M.

"Working with Cecily has been such an enriching experience. During our time together, she helped me achieve goals that I have been working on for years. She helped me build a healthy relationship with food, understand the importance of nutrition and help me make necessary lifestyle changes. She was always so supportive and encouraging. Extremely thankful for my time working with Cecily!"

Sami N.

"Prior to meeting with Cecily, I was having digestive issues like bloating, IBS, brain fog and other symptoms that greatly affected my quality of life. During our first visit, she really took the time to get to know me and to listen to my story. She made me feel really comfortable. She gave me great suggestions through food recipes and supplements to support my gut issues and taught me why my body was reacting this way. My biggest take-away from my sessions with Cecily is learning how to balance my meals, what foods to avoid and incorporate to alleviate symptoms and support my healing, along with the importance of exercise and mindfulness. From start to finish, communication and working with Cecily was so easy!"

Tiffany L.

"Cecily helped me with digestive issues that I have been struggling with for years. Doctors have told me to eliminate certain foods from my diet and that things would improve, but that didn't work. I couldn't figure out what the issues were, but with her help, my digestion has greatly improved! I am less bloated, have more energy, and my GI system is working more properly. I would definitely recommend seeing Cecily if you experience any digestive issue!"
