Stephanie is a registered dietitian (RD) specializing in working with clients with all eating disorders including but not limited to, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder, and other specified feeding or eating disorder. She works with adults across the gender spectrum.
Stephanie received a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from Penn State University in 2007. She gained experience in the eating disorder field prior to receiving her DPD certificate from Simmons College in 2015 and completing the Aramark Dietetic internship in 2016. She is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians. Stephanie’s experience includes working in inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programs at eating disorder treatment facilities both as a dietitian and a mental health worker. She has experience in both individual and group nutrition counseling. Other areas of interest include digestive disorders and how emotions affect the gastrointestinal (GI) system.
Stephanie practices from a weight inclusive, Health at Every Size® approach meaning that she does not believe that weight is the primary indicator of health. She fights to prevent medical discrimination against individuals in larger bodies and believes in a standard of care regardless of body size. She helps clients heal their relationship with food, movement, and their bodies by providing guidance in how to connect with their bodies and incorporate mindful eating into their daily lives. Stephanie will help clients start on a journey towards intuitive eating when ready. This is done by providing flexible meal plans, food exposures, grocery store or meal outings, providing nutrition education, and listening to each client’s individualized needs.
In her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her rescue cat, Sprinkles, exploring restaurants around the DC area, movies (especially Harry Potter!), and traveling whenever possible.
