Professional Directory

We have created a directory of non-diet, Health at Every Size (HAES) professionals who work with parents to help them understand body hate, disordered eating and eating disorders. We create a lot of resources for parents, but at the end of the day, you may still benefit from speaking with a professional who can talk to you about your unique family situation. Read More

I love to help all individuals work to have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies, to support this I work to educate and support parents in addressing their own weight, food, body judgments and rules and also how they can transfer a positive food relationship to their children who are innately born with the ability to eat.

I use Ellyn Satter's Division of Responsibility model which is a non-diet model for raising good eaters - focus is on building the child's eating skills rather than nutrient-focus.

Katherine Zavodni, MPH, RD, CD, CEDRD

I counsel parents to follow a Trust Model of feeding with their kids, also known as Ellyn Satter's Division of responsibility. I work with parents to separate their concerns about body size from their feeding approach, so that they can provide a supportive, structured feeding environment that is not based on trying to manipulate body size. My approach is based on supporting unique individual children to develop eating competence at their own pace. If parents report growth or weight concerns, I evaluate growth data when possible and coach parents to support the natural process of growth and affirm the diversity of bodies.

Kathleen Meehan, MS, RD, LDN

When working with parents, I start by exploring the parent's relationship to food and discuss why a non-diet approach is essential to health and wellbeing. We'll discuss how biases about bodies and rigid rules around food are influential in a child's health and eating habits. We'll discuss how to instead utilize the DOR or determine what might be best for that parent and their family. We'll discuss intuitive eating and feeding strategies - I'd likely recommend a book like Born to Eat.

If a parent is concerned about their child's weight, I first listen to their concerns and ask a lot of questions -- both about the child and the home environment. We discuss ways that the parent can support and help their child grow up in their body free from shame and guilt. I emphasize how important it is to continue to allow children to be the intuitive eaters they were born as-- without any restriction on portion size, type of food, etc.

I would approach a family with individualized goal setting and also with a weight-inclusive HAES approach to nutrition. I would make sure I am getting the full picture of each families situation, and provide recommendations that are appropriate, realistic, and achievable with each family.

Lindsay Birchfield, MS, RD, CD
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.

The first step in working with parents and families that are interested in influencing a child or teen's eating and nutrition is education for themself and exposure to a qualified teacher and expert. With my credentials of a Masters in Public Health, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and Registered Yoga Teacher - I bring a holistic approach to supporting your health and overall well-being, because it's about so much more than the food that someone puts in their body.
