Danielle Sikorski, RDN

Danielle helps people find joy in the foods they can eat instead of focusing on their limitations. Recently Danielle lived in Denver, Colorado where she managed the Nutrition and Weight Management Program at Lifetime Fitness, a large health and wellness facility. Her clients included those with weight loss and weight gain goals, diabetes management, chronic diseases, endurance athletes, children, families, and people with food sensitivities. She specializes in individual nutrition counseling, meal planning, group support sessions, grocery store tours, and educational seminars. Danielle believes in the Dietitian in Integrative and Functional Medicine philosophy which centers on a holistic, “Food as Medicine” approach to wellness, and is based firmly in the Integrative Medicine model. Whole-food therapies, targeted supplements, and mind-body modalities form the basis of “Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy”. Danielle can relate to others with food concerns, since she was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in addition to autoimmune diseases and food intolerances. These conditions have given her first-hand experience with choosing the right foods to manage pain, increase energy, and still enjoy meals.

Education:

Danielle graduated from California State University at Northridge with a B.S. in Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Science where she also had rotational experiences focusing on Burn, Trauma, Pediatric, Neuro and Surgical ICUs, NICU, Gastrointestinal, Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Renal, Oncology, and general nutrition support. She went on to conduct her internship through University of Nevada Reno with rotations at University Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Hospital in Las Vegas, St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Barbara Greenspun Women’s Care Center, Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and the Southern Nevada Diabetes Camp. She is an active member of the Alaska Dietetic Association, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and A.N.D professional group Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine (DIFM).

Personal Philosophy:

“Eating well isn’t about deprivation. Balance, variety and moderation is key. Sound nutrition is about learning what fuels your body : whole, natural foods, un-processed foods. Use food as medicine to provide your body with the building blocks to facilitate hormone balance, increase energy and naturally regulate your appetite. I love helping people discover that eating healthy doesn’t mean carrots and celery sticks. It can be full of flavor and incredibly satisfying.”

Extracurricular Activities and Personal Interests:

Danielle loves her Alaska Grown husband and her family and enjoys spending as much time with them as possible. She also takes pleasure in running, anything outdoors and baking. To unwind, she believes there is nothing better than a good book or listening to excellent music.

Patient Testimonials

  • "I love going to Avante...they take pride in patient care and are always willing to accommodate... simply the best.."CSL
  • "I have been a patient at Avante for 5 yrs now, and I have only positive things to say about the quality of the care that I receive from the entire facility. From the smiles at the front desk to the efficient lab techs and all of the staff in between. My health has turned around thanks to the care from Kiki Green and Grant Gibbs. Competent, caring and constantly striving for the newest information available to share with me. They embody the best in what I want in Holistic and Modern Medical care - JH 
  • "I came to Avante about 8 months ago when I was looking for a doctor after moving to Alaska, my husband and I saw Dr. Jana.  We were pleased with the office and esp. the care we received from Dr. Jana. It feels good to leave a doctors office not loaded down with lists of new medicines but  positive thoughts of lifestyle changes that will produce better health. I started seeing Tina at the first of November and two days after the first acupuncture treatment I was in the least amount of pain in over 25 years.  Believe me I have tried many different medical treatments some with more success than others.  I am so encouraged to look forward to more mobility and greater health! I feel younger and more energetic. Thank you Avante.  I also love the patient portal and have found that the staff always responds to my online questions." - PM

  • "I have been a patient of Avante's for several years now, and I have only wonderful things to say about their business. The place is beautiful and welcoming, the staff are all very helpful and kind, and the providers, all 3 I have seen, currently Kikki Green and Grant Gibbs, have been intelligent, intuitive and efficient. They care about you and your health. The lab is clean and full service and the nutritional supplements are extensive and high quality. The use of the Patient Portal is outstanding!  Give yourself extra time is my only recommendation as they sometimes get backed up on scheduling." - JH
