In-person & Virtual Sessions Specializing In...

We specialize in anorexia, binge eating disorder (BED), avoidant restrictive intake disorder (ARFID), Bulimia, Eating Disorder Not otherwise specified (EDNOS), Disordered Eating, and Child Feeding Concerns. We also help parents learning to raise their children with a good relationship with food and their body.

Your body image is the a result of you perception, thoughts and feelings about your bodies. Healthy Body image goes beyond your physical appearance. We support you in cultivating self compassion, challenging unrealistic societal standards and embracing diversity in body shapes and sizes.

Clinical supervision and business coaching are essential for eating disorder providers counseling clients. Sessions are designed to help clinical skills, ethical consideration and business and organization context. Supervision or Coaching are tailored to you specific needs.

Dana Snook is a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), licensed dietitian-nutritionist and certified intrinsic coach (CIC) for 20 years. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She completed a community based internship in Pittsburgh at Adagio Health.

Dana has worked in a variety of settings including clinical work in hospitals and outpatient settings with adults, pediatrics and in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). She has worked in the community setting both at Women Infants and Children (WIC) and at Joint Base McGuire, Dix, Lakehurst with military personnel. Prior to entering the eating disorder field, Dana held the Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist for 5 years and enjoys working with those dealing with diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome. She has spent the last 10 years in private practice providing nutritional therapy to those struggling with eating disorders, disordered eating, body image concerns and child feeding concerns.

Dana identifies as a Health at Every Size ® and fat-positive dietitian providing weight-inclusive care. Dana completed advanced training with renowned feeding therapist Ellyn Satter and the Division of Responsibility of Feeding and Eating Competence Model. She also trained to be an Intuitive Eating Counselor.

She has provided workshops on "Effective Nutrition Education in Schools," for the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) and New Jersey Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NJAHPERD). In addition, she provides training/consultations to group organizations working to provide fat a positive environments in work places, hospital settings, schools, daycares and many more.

Dana learned the most important thing in eating disorder care is clinical supervision. Without supervision she wouldn’t be the provider she is today. She now provides clinical supervision/consultations to other providers who want to grow as an eating disorder provider. After struggling to wrap her head around starting a private practice for more than 15 years, Dana has also successfully started and runs an insurance based group private practice. She knows how hard it can be to get the confidence to start and provides business coaching for those wanting to start up your business, add employees, take insurance, learn how to have a good work life balance and much more.
