Hi, I’m Craig!

I am a Registered Dietitian based in Toronto/Tkaronto, Ontario. I am a cis-gender, gay man and my pronouns are he/him/his. I started this practice to help 2SLGBTQ+ folks get reliable, inclusive support around their bodies and food. Whether it is around chronic disease management, settling a difficult digestive tract, or just living your best life, I can help! I practice from a health at every size approach. This means I celebrate body diversity, challenge scientific and cultural assumptions around health and wellness, and prioritize compassionate self-care. This also means that I reject the idea that weight is a strong indicator of good health, and prefer to focus on rejecting diet culture, promoting positive relationships with our body, and working on measurable health outcomes such as blood sugars, cholesterol/triglycerides, and blood pressure. I also practice from an intersectional perspective, acknowledging how factors like ethnicity, gender, age, and ability affect our lived experience.

I do not restrict my services to only members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. I believe we all can thrive in safer, inclusive spaces.

I am a Registered Dietitian, certified through the College of Dietitian’s of Ontario. I completed my Honours Bachelor of Science in Health Studies at the University of Waterloo and my Bachelor of Applied Science in Nutrition and Food from Toronto Metropolitan University. I also have my Master of Public Health from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health through the University of Toronto. Through my education, I have completed various courses and certifications in health, gender, and sexuality such as:

  • Sociology of Gender
  • Introduction to Human Sexuality
  • Human Sexuality in Relationships
  • Parents, Children, and Family Relations
  • Public Health Policy – focus on Sex Education Curriculums for the public school system
  • Nutrition Programs and Strategies – focus on the inclusivity of LGBTQ folks in acute care settings
  • Social Determinants of health
  • Eating Disorder Sensitive: Education for Dietitian’s – Body Brave

In addition to my education, I have also worked in the field of gender and sexuality education and advocacy through experiences such as:

  • Training and Education Specialist at Rainbow Health Ontario, a leader in LGBT2SQ+ health.
  • Course Content Creator for CFNY 409 Gender and Food Security at Toronto Metropolitan University.
  • Contract Lecturer for FNP 100 – Introduction to Professional Practice at Toronto Metropolitan University.
  • Teaching and Research Assistant in the Sexuality, Marriage, and Family Studies department at the University of Waterloo.
