Eating Well Is About

More Than Just Food

Do you imagine a version of yourself well-nourished, calm, and confident with food?

Eating should not feel overwhelming, scary,  riddled with indecision, guilt, and obsessive thoughts.

Eating can be joyful, calm, and sustainable.

I help people overcome food dysfunction and learn what their unique body needs. We build practical, nourishing, smart ways to feed yourself. This is the last “diet” you’ll ever need. (but this is very much not a diet)

You can nourish yourself well.

And you don’t need rules to get there. 

What I Specialize In

Austin-based Virtual Dietitian Nutritionist

Eating Disorders

Unfortunately, disordered eating incredibly common. We’ll work on getting you adequately nourished, stabilizing your eating habits, and calming your anxiety about food, eating, and your body so you can work toward trusting yourself with food. Working with a HAES-aligned dietitian is deep and highly rewarding work. 

Intuitive Eating

Intuitive Eating is a self-care framework, not a set of rules to follow. If you’ve been losing and gaining the same weight year after year and feel like you don’t know what to eat anymore, intuitive eating can help. No matter what nutrition solutions we’re working on, body image is central to the converations. You’ll learn to listen to your hunger, fullness, and satisfaction, instead of all the useless rules in your head. 

Body Image

No matter what nutrition solutions we’re working on, body image is central to the converations. Our relationships with food are hard to budge if we’re not taking a look at how you feel about your body and what beliefs those feelings stem from. When working from a Health At Every Size Perspective, you can seperate your worth from your weight. 

Fertility & Perinatal Nutrition

Many women receive unhelpful and ineffective ‘solutions’ for issues about fertility, periods, and perinatal health. If you have a disordered eating history, this can be especially murky. We’ll build strong, nurturing mindbody habits, while working to heal – or maintain – your relationship with food and your body. Supplement protocols and meal planning are also used when appropriate.

Get To Know My Style

WHAT TO EXPECT…

N

Compassionate, relational, you-centered care

I commit to providing culturally-sensitive food and nutrition counseling in a way that centers your lived experience. Your body, your rules. I want to help you understand yourself and your body better so you can make the best food choices for you. This builds confidence and trust in yourself. 

N

An expert guide on your food & body image path

As a non-diet dietitian, I use intuitive eating as a loose framework for working with clients and am committed to my role as a Health At Every Size (HAES) dietitian. My approach can be integrated into your life with flexibility and care. This is not a strict set of rules, but a framework for healing that works for many, but not all.

N

An untraditional take on nutrition counseling

Because I am strongly anti-oppressive in my approach, I am not going to judge you or shame you for your food habits. That does neither of us any good. My main focus is helping my clients unpack and understand why they relate to food they way they do, which often has much to do with the way our society views food and bodies. Then, you’ll relearn how to eat in ways that are nourishing for your individual body and health.

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT…

M

Counting, tracking, or any metrics

These systems promote anxiety, disordered eating, and disconnect you with what your body is telling you. Instead of tracking your food & exercise, we’ll build sustainable goals and work toward them. We may decide that food or symptom journaling would help you and if so, I have tools for you to do so safely.

M

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.

M

Weight loss advice

I do not promise or promote weight loss to anyone, in any body. This doesn’t mean that you can’t desire it, just that I will help you look at this desire differently. You’ll discover how you can take care of your body, not how you “need” to change it.

Ways To Work Together

different people, different programs

1:1 Nutrition Counseling

Individual nutrition counseling is best if you want a tailored approach to walk you through healing your unique relationship with food while getting individualized help with nutrition. If you need help nourishing yourself through eating disorder recovery, and/or if you are dealing with a chronic health condition like endometriosis, PCOS, or infertility and you want a tailored approach through a non-diet lens, or if you just want 1-1 support from a non-diet dietitian. 

At your initial appointment, we’ll dig deep into what you’re struggling with, your history with food, health, your weight, and your relationship with food and your body. I’ll give you my suggestions and forecast about what I think we’ll want to work on. We’ll take this, along with what works for you, and come up with a plan together. 

A 6-month committment is generally recommended for best results. The Heal & Nourish program is excellent for those ready to dive in. 

This is right for you if:

You Have An Eating Disorder History And Dream of Full Recovery

Often, those in eating disorder recovery benefit from frequent, consistent support from a dietitian. I will care for you with trauma-informed, non-diet, weight-neutral practices. I specialize in binge eating and the intersection with women’s health. 

You Have A Health Condition and Want Individualized, Non-Diet Support

If you have physical and mental health conditions, individualized care can allow us to fine-tune the process to your uniqueness. Diabetes, heart disease, PCOS, endometriosis, and other health conditions are welcome here. 

You Don't Know What You Need!

It’s always okay to start with individual sessions to get started. If you’ve never worked with a dietitian before, this could be a great way to discover if my method feels supportive. If moving into my group program makes sense, we can do that when the time is right.

The Love Food Again Program

INTUITIVE EATING GROUP COACHING & SUPPORT WITH A SMALL GROUP OF WOMEN+

A 6-month immersive small group experience that guides, challenges, and supports you through healing your relationship with food so you can eat with confidence, find peace, and discover ways to care for your body – as it is.

You will meet with Emily and the small group twice a month to process, get support, and get answers to your questions. On your own time, you’ll go through 12 learning modules to teach you what you need to know to dig deep and uncover how to take excellent care of yourself, without diet rules. This is both a liberatory and a grounding experience.

This program is for you if:

Your Relationship With Food Needs Work

You don’t need more rules. You need a system that shows you how to listen to YOUR body. 

You Want To Feel Better About Your Body

Years of diet after diet, and losing and gaining the same 30 pounds can leave you lost, frustrated, and unsure how to eat. We’ll relearn this together.

You're Ready To Dig Deep, Liberate, And Heal

Diet culture steals your sense of feeling embodied and content in your body. Body image work is woven throughout this whole program.

True Stories

TESTIMONIALS

Shelby

“Emily has helped me SO much in changing the way I approach and think about eating. Her non-judgmental and compassionate style has given me permission to not be so hard on myself when it comes to food and weight. Instead of only giving the “how to’s,” she’s worked with me to see this as an inside-out approach which has made all the difference.”

Roslyn

“My relationship with food has completely transformed. I used to constantly feel I had to make “better” choices. Now, I check in with myself and am more attuned to my needs. 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. It’s been really cool to allow myself to ENJOY the food! Emily’s support, compassion, and ability to listen, combined with expertise made a huge difference.”

Lauren

“I went into this open but stressed out and turning to food to cope. Emily made me feel heard and understood. Now I have way better ways of coping with my stress and I have an inner support system built that I didn’t have when I started this work.”

It all starts with a conversation.
