Alissa Rumsey, MS, RD, CDN, CSCS
My approach is highly individualized and rooted in intuitive eating, mindfulness, self-compassion, and the principles of Health at Every Size (HAES). I blend expertise in nutrition and psychology to help you break the cycle of dieting, learn to eat ‘normally’, and nurture lasting health behaviors without obsessing about food or your body.
As an intuitive eating coach and body image specialist, I help you cultivate a healthy relationship with both food and your body, without trying to control your weight. I take a holistic self-care approach, meaning that I help you learn how to take care of yourself in all aspects of health – including food, exercise, stress management, coping skills, sleep habits, and more. I help you figure out a way of eating that is right for you and that allows you to take care of your body, without restriction or deprivation. My approach will allow you to discover how to feed and nurture your body in a way that permits you to live your life fully while connecting more authentically to yourself and to others.
I work with many parents who are looking to improve their own food habits and body image so that they can model a healthy relationship with food and bodies to their children. My goal is to empower parents to help their children develop positive behaviors around food, movement and body image.
