I follow an anti-diet and all foods fit approach with my clients and their families. Instead of focusing on weight as an indicator of nutrition, I guide families and clients to focus on other aspects health like intuitive eating, gentle nutrition, joyful movement, and overall self-care/wellness. I truly believe we all have the ability to tune into our bodies and let them guide us toward what we need to eat in order nourish ourselves. My goal is to support my clients in finding food and body freedom.
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.
I am dedicated to helping people develop a healthy relationship with food while recognizing, accepting, & respecting the role food has played in their lives. My compassionate approach is informed by the core truth that we are all born with the ability to intuitively nourish our bodies. Mixed messages around food propagated by our culture threaten to disconnect us from this innate skill. I help individuals rediscover their ability to intuitively eat as well as work towards healing their relationship with food.
I believe in a team-based approach and involving the parents, therapists, doctors and anyone else who will be in the immediate support. Depending on the Childs age, I will always update the parents on the goals at the end of the session and may provide more detail in person or via email regarding their needed support and parents preferences.
I provide lots of education to parents in-session about child feeding, myths about eating disorders, and how they can support their children through their eating disorders. We talk a lot about division of responsibility, parents’ beliefs around food, and practical troubleshooting matters like meal planning.
My work is grounded in SatterÛªs DOR and I approach my work from a non diet HAES philosophy. My goal is to empower parents and reduce anxiety around weight and food.
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.
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.
As a dietitian, I can help parents navigate the introduction of foods, food acceptance, food allergies and sensitivities, and youth sports nutrition from a HAES perspective. I can also support families in reframing thoughts and beliefs about health, weight, body image, and body acceptance using a non-diet approach.
Nutrition counseling utilizes an empathetic, Intuitive Eating and non-dieting approach to achieve long-term behavioral change. Casey’s goal is to provide her clients with the tools necessary to obtain healthy and balanced lifestyle. By enabling her clients to make peace with food they are able to feel more in at peace with their eating habits.
I provide parents with verbal, written, and/or online resources and support about eating disorder basics, meal planning, HAES, weight restoration (if applicable), medical complications, etc.
I work with my clients utilizing a combination of nutritional therapy and coaching, along with accessible yoga (if interested) to address disordered eating and body image concerns. My therapeutic philosophy is rooted in “health at every size” and is weight-inclusive.
I work with children and families to promote positive relationships with food, physical activity and body image.
When working with parents, I focus on the Division of Responsibility, all food fit, weight-neutral, etc.
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.
I coach parents to use responsive feeding to support children in developing a positive relationship with food and body.
