For Nutrition & Body Image
You can build a happy, nourishing relationship with food.
You can feel confident in what your body needs.
And you don’t need food rules to get there.
Nourish Yourself Confidently
Work with me one-on-one
We’ll work toward peace with food, improved body image, and confidence in your food skills and habits. Food does not have to be so complicated.
You’ll strengthen your ability to hear what your body is telling you and make intentional food choices, without guilt and doubt. You’ll learn to honor your hunger and fullness signals, prioritize pleasure, and finally feel done with dieting for good.
I use the Intuitive Eating framework as a base for most clients, but everyone is unique and so will be our work.
I provide guidance, nutrition support, a safe place to uproot your ‘food issues’ so you can find a balance between calm and nourished. You’re figure out what health means to you and build lifelong skills for nutrition and self-care.
Sometimes We Need A Little Hand Holding
Non-Diet Nutrition Counseling Is Best For:
Chronic Dieting and Body Image Healing
We live in a wildly body-negative culture. When you decide that another diet, weight loss attempt, or juice cleanse isn’t what you need, but that feels terrifying, anti-diet nutrition counseling can work wonders.
Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy
As an eating disorder dietitian, I specialize in binge eating, but am versed in all eating disorder care. When appropriate, I collaborate with care teams, provide meal plans, use intuitive eating, and other forms of nutrition therapy.
If you have body image distress or a disordered eating history and you need nutrition support with your reproductive system, I can be a guide. PCOS, endometriosis, PMDD, fertility, and the perinatal period can all be treated with a gentle, non-diet approach. Meal plans and supplement protocols included if needed.

“Now, I can actually listen to what my body wants.
I have a family history of diabetes, and I wanted to make sure I was taking care of my health. I needed someone with nutrition expertise, but who would also help me with disordered eating. And that has made so much difference. I no longer feel like I’m betraying my body. I actually eat what I want and I’m proud of how I eat.”
"I feel so much more empowered to live a life of food freedom.
I am still learning about my body’s cues every day, but by giving myself the freedom to explore food without restriction, I no longer feel an urgency to eat certain foods and then “start over” the next day. I can finally ENJOY food again!”
There is a movement
Toward freedom with food, empowerment with our health, and away from the oppressive ideals our parents grew up with.

My Signature Coaching Package
Heal & Nourish
a 6-month nutrition therapy and intuitive eating coaching package
(it feels like food therapy plus practical guidance)
This combination of expert guidance, support, and food & movement practices was designed to give you a proven system to heal your relationship with food and make the changes your body needs for over-all wellbeing.
Biweekly 1-1 sessions with Emily
We meet every other week to learn and process. These sessions allow you to explore individual experiences you’re having with food and body image, learn approaches tailored to your needs, and have a space space to process, brainstorm, and heal.
Unlimited Support & Feedback
Unlimited text and email support from me in between sessions. Ask your questions on the go and get text and audio answers from me. This will be SO helpful for you, will keep you connected, and keep you inspired.
Workbook, Assignments & Meditations
You will get workbook assignments and journal prompts, tailored to your needs to work on in between sessions. Unlearning long-held thought patterns takes practice, and these assignments were designed to walk you through every step.
Intuitive Eating Journal & Review
You will get access to Healthie, which includes a food and intuitive eating journal. I review and give feedback weekly, but individualize all of this to what is most supportive for you.
You’ll also receive access to my forthcoming self-paced 12-week video course with lifetime access. This will be coming out early spring 2024.
WHAT TO EXPECT…
Compassionate, Relational Care
You do not need to be educated on the food pyramid, I’m pretty sure of that. I commit to providing trauma-informed and culturally-sensitive food and nutrition counseling in a way that centers your lived experience – your body, your rules.
Nutrition and Mind-Body Education
I use intuitive eating, mindful eating, and other nutrition and body image approaches dynamically with each client. We’ll find what works for you, so that it can be integrated into your life with flexibility and care. This is not a strict set of rules, but a framework for attuned and joyful eating.
A Guide To Walk Beside You
My role is to help you understand your relationship with eating better, and then to move you toward balance and nourishment. Being trauma-informed means I will do my best to create a safe place for you to talk about how you feel about food and your body. I will use nutrition therapy and other lifestyle approaches to address your health issues, but this will not come with shame, unhelpful weight-loss advice, or ignoring your uniqueness. If you are neurodivergent or chronically ill, I recognize you need a tailored approach.
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT…
Counting, Tracking, or Weighing
Using these external, rule and shame-based systems disconnect you from your body and can stand in the way of you finding balance. I love using body-centered journaling with clients, but this is very different that a tracker. We can talk about your weight, the details of your food, and why it’s so hard to let go of the rules.
The Finger-Wagging Food Police
I am not here to judge you or your choices. I have a firm belief that we are all doing our best with the resources we have. This belief allows me to help you consider what you want to change, and how you are already enough as you are.
Weight Loss Advice
I do not promise or promote weight loss. This doesn’t mean that you can’t desire it, just that THIS is what we can work through. How you want to feel about your body, not how you “need” to change it.

How things go…
Intake & Onboarding
We start with a 75 minute initial appointment. After you schedule that, I’ll send you some intake forms specific for your situation. If I need lab work, I’ll have you upload it to my online platform, Healthie.
Meet For Our Initial Appointment
We’ll talk about your past with food and your body, your life now, your goals, and why you’re stuck. I’ll try and get a full picture of your health, your relationship with food, and we’ll make a shared vision for our work. Sessions are done virtually on Healthie, a HIPAA-compliant telehealth software.
Biweekly (ish) Follow Ups
Follow-up appointments are scheduled every week or every other week for as long as you need them. I see a lot of amazing, life-changing progress when clients commit to 6 -12 months of work.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer telehealth or virtual appointments?
Yes! Sessions are done virtually via my safe, easy-to-use, HIPAA-compliant telehealth system, Healthie. Group sessions are done on Zoom.
Do you help people lose weight?
I do not promote, promise, or recommend intentional weight loss as a primary goal. If losing weight is your only goal, I am probably not the right practitioner for you. However, if you’re unhappy with your body, but what you really want is to feel better about this and nourish yourself better, we should talk. Weight and feelings about weight are complex and intertwined with oppression. There is so proven, safe, effective method for long term weight loss and so, I don’t recommend having that as your main goal.
How much time should I expect to work with you?
That depends on where you’re at now. If you’re dealing with disordered eating or chronic dieting, I recommend a 6-month commmittment. I created Heal & Nourish, because an internal committment to 6 months of work creates a critical pace and willingness to be patient and trust the process. This work is quite deep, and complex. If you give me 6 months, I’ll show you a new version of yourself.
How I schedule an appointment?
What is an eating disorder dietitian?
Eating disorders and disordered eating are complex mental and physical conditions. In my work in helping folks navigate the complicated world of eating disorders, I do my best to create a safe place where we can understand the root of your ‘food issues’ so you can nourish yourself well. We talk about food, body image, thoughts, feelings, motivations, all sorts of stuff. I feel supported and safe talking about a variety of topics with clients.
When do I pay for your services?
Individual sessions are either paid for at the time of service or if you are doing a package, you’ll have an automatic monthly payment. The 6 month counseling package can be paid up front or monthly. If using BCBS, please see the section on insurance payment.
What payment methods do you accept ?
Credit, debit, FSA, and HSA cards are accepted.
How do I cancel or reschedule an appointment ?
Reach out to me via Healthie or email as soon as you realize you need to reschedule. I have a 24-hour no-show policy, meaning if you cancel within 24 hours, or do not show up to your appointment, I will charge you the full cost of the appointment. This is true for those using insurance as well.
