Spotlight on:

Nicky Otto, RD

Private Practice Dietitian - Nicky Otto Dietetics

Nicky has spent the majority of her career working in an intensive outpatient eating disorders service through London Health Sciences Centre (2013-2020), where she worked within an interdisciplinary team to help individuals overcome their eating difficulties by offering both individual and group-based education and counselling sessions following a CBT framework.

Nicky has recently moved to the East Coast and started her private practice, Nicky Otto Dietetics, with a focus on helping individuals improve their relationship with food, recover from eating disorders and disordered eating and stop the cycle of chronic dieting. She also supports individuals to improve their nutritional health by adopting health behaviours and tuning into their nutrition just that little bit more. It’s about the food but it’s also about so much more. Nicky Otto helps individuals begin to untangle their relationship with food, move forward with their nutrition and create more space for all of the other areas of life that are meant to be lived!
