Dietitians

All of our dietitians receive extra training in motivational coaching, enabling them to offer highly individualized medical nutrition therapy!

Our practice philosophy is to help our patients achieve lifelong results through in-depth lifestyle analysis and behavioral modification, affecting not just the symptoms of the problem but the root cause.

We have a whole foods focus and ask our patients to start low and go slow.

New patients are placed with their dietitian based upon availability, personality, specialization and goals. Because obesity is the root cause of so many underlying conditions, all of our dietitians specialize in weight loss, weight management, and lifestyle changes.

Are you ready to get to know our dietitians? Meet them below!

Erica A Blackburn, MS RDN CD CSOWM

Specialities: Gastrointestinal Disorders, Weight Management, Cardiovascular Health
Primary Location: Seattle, WA

Hi, my name is Erica Blackburn and I’m a dietitian with Sensibly Sprouted. I am passionate about working with clients to improve their health, well being, and quality of life.

I always aim to practice patient centered care. Food can be deeply personal, and I’ve found that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t actually fit most people. All foods have a place on our plate and if we work collaboratively, we can build a way of eating that seamlessly fits into your day-to-day lifestyle, and create strategies to reach your goals that will last a lifetime!

That’s why I love digging deep to get to the root cause of issues and find sustainable solutions by creating  a safe and non-judgmental space for you to discuss your health goals and challenges. I want you to feel empowered and to thrive! I look forward to meeting you!
