Erin Barnes, Integrative Nutrition Specialist

Erin is an Integrative and Functional nutrition specialist and traditional food enthusiast whose goal is to help her clients achieve vitality through a holistic, personalized approach to health and healing.

With a bachelor’s degree in both Dietetics and Psychology and 6 years practicing as a Registered Dietitian in the field of eating disorders, Erin has learned that how you think about what you are eating is often as important as what you are eating. She aims to provide a non-judgmental space to explore the root causes of your issues and excels in meeting individuals wherever they are at on the wellness spectrum. Clients who work with Erin know that healthful eating is not perfect eating and that there is no one path the wellness.

Through her work with hundreds of clients and through navigating her own health and healing journey, Erin has learned to embody a simple, approachable, non-diet, food-first philosophy. Once health goals are developed in collaboration with her client, Erin integrates a variety of individualized nutrition therapies including whole foods/traditional foods, therapeutic diets, prescriptive eating, tailored supplements, and mind-body work, with a focus on letting your body be the guide through the healing process.

Erin now also provides Micronutrient Testing via Spectracell Laboratories. Analysis can reveal a person’s functional nutrient status over a longer period of time than conventional serum testing. Spectracell Laboratories developed their exclusive patented micronutrient tests to measure the function of over 40 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients within your cells.

When not scheming how to get liver and sauerkraut into her two young daughters, Erin enjoys anything outdoors in the warm Minnesota sunshine with her partner, Ryan, and daughters, Ray and Millie.

Erin currently sees clients at our Minnetonka location.
