Hi, I'm Courtney
As an eating disorder Dietitian who specializes in Intuitive Eating nutrition counseling and body acceptance work, I am passionate about helping others break free from eating disorders.
I believe this work is important because I know first hand how much an eating disorder can consume your life.
My goal for clients is for them to learn more about their own relationship with food and their body. Then, we can work together toward creating habits around nourishment from food instead of restriction.
In order to ensure that I am being inclusive and flexible, if you would prefer to inquire about services in a way other than over the phone (such as email), I am happy to accommodate those requests.
I believe that you CAN recover from your eating disorder
I believe that you can accept your here & now body
I believe that you deserve to have a dietitian who is compassionate
During our work together, when you are in an appropriate stage of recovery, we will find ways to incorporate these 10 principles into your life. There is no particular order, but we will cover them all throughoutour time together.
Health at Every Size focuses on the fact that true health is based on social, economic and environmental factors. This also means that as an eating disorder dietitian, I believe that eating disorders come in ALL shapes and ALL sizes. I believe that what is more important is whether you are having or acting on disordered thoughts around food and your body.
My approach as an eating disorder dietitian is also based in my values, with the top 2 being empathy and compassion. I will meet you wherever you are in this journey and help you to move forward at your own pace and readiness. I won’t judge you or push you beyond what you are ready to do (as long as you are medically stable & doing the work with me).
We will work together to help you understand your eating disorder thoughts & behaviors, re-learn your hunger & satiety cues, and how to respect your body.
Here's what is included
One on one, personalized nutrition counseling sessions with me, an eating disorder Dietitian, on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. These sessions are held via my HIPAA compliant video conferencing software. We will work together to determine how often we should meet.
Support in between sessions via the chat feature in the HIPAA compliant software
Enrollment in my Intuitive Eating 101 self guided online course
Worksheets and activities to help complement our work together
ALSO Access to the Practice Better app for scheduling, payments, and the food and mood journal
What my clients are saying
“I was so excited to find a local nutritionist who practices body acceptance and intuitive eating. Courtney is easy to talk to, supportive, and compassionate. I’ve loved working with her!”

“Courtney offers judgement free, honest, science-backed guidance on how to build a healthy lifestyle without feeling overwhelmed or not good enough. Her guidance was transformational for me.”

“What I love most about working with Courtney is her ability to connect with me as a client, making me feel my concerns were valid and that she wanted to help! She is compassionate about your health & wellness.”
L.W., Athens, GA
“Courtney is an incredibly caring, available, and knowledgable nutritionist. She taught me how to properly meal plan for a busy schedule, normalize enjoying food, and harbor a healthy relationship with movement.”
Then, if you decide to move forward, you will schedule your first session & submit payment. Due to the nature of eating disorder work, you are not required to commit to a package of sessions. We can take it one session at a time.
Next, you will receive an email to be invited to Practice Better. This is the software that I use to communicate with clients, accept payments and do scheduling.
