Eating disorder dietitian in Columbia, Maryland and Washington, DC
Hi! I’m Rebecca Hart. Welcome to Courage to Nourish. I am a weight inclusive, anti-diet dietitian with over 9 years experience working in the field of eating disorders.
I am passionate about helping my clients create a healthy relationship with food. I primarily see clients virtually in DC, Maryland and Virginia, and also have limited availability for in person appointments at our Columbia, Maryland office.
I have previously worked in eating disorder treatment facilities at multiple levels of care, including inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient. For the past 5 years I have been serving clients in an outpatient setting.
I love outpatient care because I am able to create long-term relationships with my clients, and help them apply evidenced based recommendations in an individualized and meaningful way. I joined Courage to Nourish in April 2022 so that I can continue to provide compassionate, client centered care to those navigating recovery.
I specialize in providing care for people struggling with all types of disordered eating, and specifically enjoy working with athletes, adolescents, chronic dieters looking to ditch diet mentality, and people who desire a more intuitive and sustainable approach to eating. I also have a special interest in supporting parents in feeding their families and recovery through pregnancy and the postpartum period. I utilize a Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating approach.
I live in Maryland with my husband, two young children, and my cat. Things that make me happy include collecting plants, reading books, fire pit hangouts, scrapbooking, and traveling.
