If you are someone who is experiencing anxiety, depression, or having problems with the ability to navigate life as you'd like, I can help. I am EMDR trained which is scientifically proven to help many types of emotional challenges. In addition, I am certified in the Prepare/Enrich tool, a wonderful aid in pre-marital counseling and for marriages that are not in crisis, but need better ways to communicate and manage conflict. As a compassionate therapist who will champion your strengths, I'd love to join you on your journey by offering you a safe, non-judgmental environment.

Joyce Oliveira -

Registered Dietitian 

 

Email: Joyce@empoweryounutrition.com 

 

Joyce Oliveira has been a Registered Dietitian since 2009.  She earned her Bachelor’s degree of Dietetics from the University of Northern Colorado and went on to California to complete her dietetic internship in the UCLA teaching hospitals, serving a diverse population.  After working for several years with those who have diabetes, Joyce transitioned into the mental health side of nutrition and soon found herself pursuing work within the eating disorder population.  Having recovered from an eating disorder herself, Joyce is passionate about bringing hope and cultivating an environment for healing to those struggling with chronic dieting, disordered eating, eating disorders, and negative body image. She is a recovery advocate and a strong supporter of community being part of the recovery process.  She believes in an all foods fit, non-diet approach, and fosters a Health at Every Size® perspective; meaning there is no one “right or better” body shape or size, and embraces body diversity as being uniquely created.  Joyce uses nutrition therapy to work with clients to empower them to have a healed relationship with food, body, and self, and formational prayer as an invitation to see and experience God in the journey of recovery.
