Amee Severson RDN, CD
Amee is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist whose work focuses on body positivity, fat acceptance, and intuitive eating. Amee encourages the belief that food can be enjoyed without guilt or shame. She believes that recovery from disordered eating is possible for everyone and that every person deserves to feel trust in their body. Amee doesn’t believe in one-size-fits-all nutrition and health, so she works with clients to make health and nutrition fit into their current life, not the other way around.
Annika Garman, RD, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor
My work with adolescents who experience issues with eating and body image is rooted in curiosity and compassion. It is my goal to remove shame and judgment from the healing environment so that transformation may happen. I believe we each have the ability to heal our selves and I view my role as a facilitator to this process.
Brandi Olden RDN, CSP, CD
Brandi is a registered dietitian and board certified as a specialist in pediatric nutrition with over a decade of experience specializing in eating disorders, food allergies/intolerances and pediatric/family nutrition (including nutrition for developmental delays, autism spectrum disorder, ADD/ADHD). Her work is shaped by the philosophies of Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size and Ellyn Statter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding. Her community work involves teaching kid’s cooking classes, gleaning at local farms for HopeLink Food Banks and spreading the message of body trust in a culture that is misguided about real beauty. In her spare time, Brandi seeks to deepen her relationship with God, do art, go adventure traveling, geek out over food psychology, and create food experiments with her daughter.
Diane Summers, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD
I work with folks from a relational, psychodynamic, trauma and social justice informed approach. The healing process is much like what happens in regular therapy, however, we are focused specifically on the relationship to food and the body. I join parents in exploring their own relationship to food and their bodies, in order for their healing to bring about a peaceful and trust-based approach to food with their children. My framework is based in HAES(R), intuitive eating, and Ellyn Satter's eating competence model, all of which are backed by significant research. My heart is to help adults find freedom so the younger generation can, in turn, be free.
Katherine Metzelaar, MSN, RD
I help individuals to create peace with their bodies and food by taking the focus off of weight as a perimeter for health and focusing on behaviors that will lead to long-term stability, change, and freedom. I specialize in eating disorders, disordered eating and work with chronic dieters too. I can support parents who have kids with eating/body issues by giving them the tools to help navigate the challenges that come up in helping their kids to heal, as will as diving into and supporting the parent's relationship with their body and food.
Kellan Morgan, RD, CD
Kellan deeply values the intrinsic knowledge that each person holds about their own body, and she works to acknowledge both the personal and structural influences on each person’s relationship with food and their body.
She applies a transformative blend of scientific research, practical application, and social justice advocacy to facilitate food freedom and radical body acceptance for her patients.
Kellan uses a supportive and empathetic counseling style to guide parents through the often confusing and emotionally charged journey of their child's eating disorder recovery. *LGBTQ+ provider*
Lindsay Birchfield, MS, RD, CD
Lindsay’s formal education defines her as a Registered Dietitian, but she prefers to identify as a health activist. Lindsay is committed to undoing the dehumanizing and fatphobic legacy of diet culture and traditional dietetics. She strives to work in partnership with her clients to help clarify an authentic and intuitive sense of their own ideas of health, nourishment, and recovery. Areas of specialization include disordered eating across age and gender identities, nutritional healing following gastric surgeries, weight-neutral interventions for diabetes and PCOS, food aversions, food-related trauma, and exposure therapy. Lindsay’s therapeutic style is marked by a suspicion for judgement and generalizations, and a respect for the power of curiosity, empathy, and humor to bring out the healthiest parts of ourselves.
Meghan Cichy, RDN, CEDRD, CD
When working with parents, I utilize a mixture of Ellyn Satter's DOR and Intuitive eating. I address the parents' own relationship with food/body with these models and support them in building more DOR oriented systems/structures into their family dynamics around food.
