This directory includes non-diet, Health at Every Size (HAES) professionals who work with parents to help them understand body hate, disordered eating and eating disorders.

Alex Altman, LICSW, LCSW-C
Short Business Description:

I am a proud Health at Every Size clinician. ‘Health at Every Size’ (or HAES) is an approach and a growing movement which is based on the belief that everyone, at every size, is capable of pursuing health-related behaviors if they wish to, irrespective of weight loss. This approach recognizes that diets do not work and that attempts to lose weight almost always perpetuate weight cycling (rapid weight loss and weight gain) and disordered eating, and ultimately cause more harm than they do good. The HAES approach also embraces the concept of body diversity—the simple fact that there are many, many kinds of bodies in this world, as there always have been and always will be—and that all bodies are good bodies, worthy and fully deserving of respect.

This approach doesn't negate the unfortunate fact that we live in a world of diet culture, fatphobia, and weight stigma, and many parents worry about how to protect their children from the toxic messaging diet culture sends. I can help you get grounded in the HAES approach and mindset, and if necessary, help you 'do your own work' with respect to body image and beliefs around food and weight, empowering you to break the inter-generational cycle of diet-related trauma and poor body image. As of 10/29/20, I'm only offering telehealth services (virtual or video therapy) in response to the pandemic, and plan to continue offering telehealth moving forward.

Alissa Rumsey, MS, RD, CDN, CSCS
Short Business Description:

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.

Ashley Perrone, MPH, RD, CDN
Short Business Description:

I aim to empower parents to make decisions in regards to feeding their child based on Ellyn Satter's division of responsibility and developmentally appropriate nutrition messages. My goal is to alleviate some of their frustrations/concerns about their child's eating habits and/or body size by using evidence-based interpretations of growth charts, eating behaviors, and nutrition. I offer support on developing a positive body image, which extends more than just "liking" your body, so that parents can model this for their children. My hope is that this work we do together allows both the parents and the child to adopt behaviors that promote body trust and physical, emotional and psychological well being.
