RDN, LDN

(she/her/hers)

I am a Health At Every Size® (HAES), anti-diet, fat positive, trauma informed registered dietitian whose goal is to help individuals break away from the idea that one’s appearance or body shape dictates their overall health. As a dietitian I hope to help people improve their relationship with food and their bodies by removing the moral value put on foods, being able to include all foods into their diet without judgment, and getting back to a place where one can trust their body to eat by utilizing the Intuitive Eating framework. I believe that everyone deserves individualized care since each person has individual needs and goals. When meeting with clients I take the time to listen to them and their lived experiences. It is my goal to work as a team with a client and to let them lead the way as I support them through their journey.

I received my undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from West Chester University. I then went on to complete my dietetic internship and my master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition at Immaculata University. I have experience working with eating disorders (anorexia, binge eating disorder (BED), Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) and Other Specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED) and bulimia) at many levels of care including inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient. In addition to working with eating disorders, I also have experience working with medically complex children. There I became comfortable working with the pediatric population, including children who have severe picky eating or needed supplemental nutrition via oral supplements or tube feedings. In addition to my education and work experience I continue to educate myself through continuing education and get weekly supervision. It is important to me to continue educating myself and to always be open to learning new things and adapting my nutrition approach.

In the past, I have researched how diet culture plays a part in the intake of postpartum women and breastfeeding women, particularly when it comes to elimination diets recommended to breastfeeding women and how they are often unnecessary. Additionally, I have presented at high schools on topics such as intuitive eating, anti-diet, eating disorders, Health At Every Size, and body image concerns.

More About Erin

I have experience working with people of all ages ranging from infancy through adulthood. I love working with people at each stage and have a particular interest in working with women who are pregnant and/or postpartum, parents of young children, and children/adolescents. When working with parents or the pediatric population I draw from the principle of the Division of Responsibility. Through my own lived experience raising two children I have become passionate about helping foster a healthy relationship with food from a very young age. My hope when working with parents is to help prevent disordered eating, eating disorders, or body image concerns. I have also become passionate about helping kids that are more selective eaters, including kids who are neurodivergent and struggle with the taste or texture of foods. I want every family to find a way to make mealtimes more enjoyable for the whole family while also meeting everyone where they are at. This includes children, or anyone, who struggles with ARFID.

In my free time I like to spend time with my husband, 2 kids, and 4 cats Tyrion, Sansa, Oberyn, and Arya (all named after Game of Thrones). If you join a session with me virtually you will likely see at least one of my cats, but no worries they are anti-diet, fat positive, and HAES aligned cats. When not in sessions or spending time with my family I enjoy reading books, crocheting, doing puzzles, or listening to true crime podcasts.
