Holistic Nutrition Edmonton. Welcome to Heart-Food.

Hi, I'm Christiane!

I help overwhelmed women navigate the maze of nutritional information, so that they move beyond the mess to find clarity, deep nourishment and enjoyment in their relationship with food. As a Board Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant, Certified Life Coach, and mama of two, it's my passion to support you on your journey. Because when you thrive, your family does too.

Christiane coaches locally in Alberta, Canada, and internationally online. She offers 1-on-1 consulting, workshops, and online courses. She has been featured in the morning show at CTV and Global News Edmonton, interviewed by All Business Media FM and The Local Good, and has been selected amongst one of the 10 Best in Edmonton.


Christiane is trained in a psychotherapeutic approach called Compassionate Inquiry developed by Dr. Gabor Maté, renowned author and expert on addictions and childhood trauma. She guides clients through a process of deep inner listening where they are able to uncover self-sabotaging patterns. Christiane's approach is gentle, yet powerful; she helps clients find kindness and non-judgment within themselves, nurturing their inner resources so that they may bring forth a shift from the inside out.

It was a milestone in my journey to understand and heal my body.  Christiane was kind, understanding, open, and easy to communicate and work with. I feel her depth of knowledge and compassion. I’m excited to continue along this path.

Your appointment was one of the best that I have had in a long time. I needed guidance with my diet and eating habits - and you did an excellent job with that.  You also confirmed that it is okay for me to listen to my body - that was a god-send.

Our challenge was that our baby was extremely gassy which manifested in loud grunting constantly all night long, so loud that neither my husband or I could sleep through it at all! After you recommended the foods to cut out, I removed them all and noticed a difference within 3 days getting better each day until there was NO grunting at all! Finally I could sleep. Baby started doing longer stretches too being more comfortable! She’s doing great! Her gas issues are so much better and she’s getting an 8-9 hour stretch at night now that she’s comfortable!

Christiane is extremely knowledgeable and so very easy to talk to. I am grateful I met her; her guidance and wisdom have helped me transform both my husband and my life through choosing healthier food/life choices. Thank you Christiane and Heart-Food Holistic Nutrition..... Simply the Best!!!
