My name is Alexandra Haggis and I am a registered dietitian with the College of Dietitians of British Columbia. I received my dietetics degree from McGill University and completed my clinical internship at Montreal General Hospital. Over the years, I have gained valuable experience working in both public and private healthcare with focuses in digestive health, eating disorders/disordered eating, chronic disease management, pre/post natal nutrition and more. In addition to my role in private practice, I also work at an addicition recovery center Together We Can - drug and alcohol recovery and education society helping folks on their journey to sober living. My goal is to provide clients with empathy and compassion while providing tusted, evidence-based nutrition care. 

Recognizing the challenges of todays food environment and diet culture, I practice from a non-diet perspective. I am passionate about helping others break free from food restriction, honouring hunger cues and reaching a place where food no longer causes stress or anxiety. When working with me, you can expect to build an empowered mindset and a healthy relationship with food. As a registered dietitian, I strive to help my clients with personalized and sustainable action plans to help them achieve their nutrition goals. 

My style of nutrition counselling is rooted in weight inclusivity. This means I believe that health can be achieved at any weight, shape or size. There are many non-weight related markers of health so rather than focusing on the number on the scale, let's work together to build healthy habits we know impact health and wellbeing. 

What is a Dietitian?

Registered Dietitians are regulated healthcare professionals with expertise in the science of nutrition. They have a passion for nutrition and help convey its potential to optimize ones health and wellbeing. Dietitans translate the science into terms you can understand. All dietitians have completed a degree in nutrition from an accredited university that includes hands-on training, internship and passed a federal registration exam.

All dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians 

 

Why I care

I believe that every individual's well-being matters, and I am committed to providing exceptional care that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit, helping my clients live their best lives.
