Short Business Description:

I am a dietitian practicing from a Health at Every Size working with people of all ages to help them find ways to honor and respect their bodies through food, movement, and self-care. I use intuitive eating as a guidepost in my practice and strongly believe that with practice, we adults and children can trust their bodies to guide them towards choices that feel good physically and mentally. I have experience supporting parents as their kids struggle with feeding disorders or other concerns related to weight/body and offering tips to manage this at home.

Ryann Hilton, RD, LDN, CEDRD
Short Business Description:

We start by unpacking the feelings and emotions attached to their child’s relationship with food and body. We then start to explore health, explaining that restricting calories, overexercising, limiting certain foods, labeling foods as good vs. bad can do more harm and actually lead to poor health (mental and physical) longterm. We support our clients in finding joy in movement, practicing gentle nutrition without restrictions and shifting the focus away from the scale and perceived ideas of what their bodies are “supposed” to look like based on toxic diet culture messaging and maybe even mixed messages from their child’s physician.

Vanessa L. Kane-Alves, RDN, LDN
Short Business Description:

My approach to working with coaching a parent is to first listen, learn and collect data about what has been happening with eating, feeding, and growth and development so far. Next the family and I would build a plan to establish the basics of the division of responsibility in feeding and eating at home.
