Eating disorder dietitian in College Park and Howard County Maryland
Hi! I’m Alex. I am co-founder of Courage to Nourish. Whether you’re looking for individual nutrition counseling, dietitian supervision, or a community resource, I’m here to support you.
Let me tell you a little about me! I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist in private practice and have been for the past four years. I serve clients all across the US and internationally with office locations in College Park and Columbia, Maryland. I specialize in eating disorder recovery, disordered eating recovery and supporting those who are ready to break out of the dieting cycle and heal their relationship with food and body. I have experience working with individuals of all ages, gender identities, and in varying stages of their recovery.
I have a special place in my heart for supporting individuals in college in their recovery. I offer individual nutrition counseling and a nutrition group targeting specifically toward finding food peace while navigating college. Send me an email to learn more about how I might be able to help! I work out of our College Park office, which is walking distance from University of Maryland.
I absolutely love my job, which includes supporting my clients in finding food freedom, finding appreciation and respect for their bodies and finding a life worth living outside their eating disorders. I am a proud and passionate anti-diet dietitian and work with my clients through a Health At Every Size © and intuitive eating framework.
To be the best support I can toward my clients, I’m sure to get to know each of them as an individual to tailor my nutrition counseling support. I value collaborating with treatment team members so I can assure the best of care to each of my clients. Clients often feel at ease with my warmhearted, yet fun-loving, personality. Let’s work together!
Additionally, I offer supervision for dietitians who are interested in starting eating disorder work and would like to build confidence in their skills. I have a passion for helping newer dietitians and dietetic interns in finding their voice and feeling more confident in their abilities. Visit our page on supervision to learn more.
