About Dana

Dana is an experienced non-diet dietitian, nutrition educator, and mindful eating expert who is passionate about helping people cultivate a balanced, peaceful, and healthful relationship to food and body. She specializes in working with young adults and adults seeking support to heal from chronic dieting, disordered eating, and eating disorders.

In our weight and diet obsessed culture it can be hard to cut through all the noise and figure out how to nourish our bodies in a way that is truly health supportive. Dana works with you to do just that. Together you’ll explore the roots of your eating behavior and relationship to food, begin to understand your unique challenges and barriers to change, and create an individualized plan for moving you forward on your journey to better health and well-being.

Dana’s practice philosophy is informed by principles of weight inclusivity, Health at Every Size®, and mindful and intuitive eating. Her practice style is compassionate, encouraging, and collaborative. She believes that all bodies deserve nourishment and by helping her clients shift their focus from weight to well-being, she helps them reconnect to their internal wisdom, rebuild trust in themselves, and reclaim authority over their food decisions.

Dana is currently pursuing the Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) certification. In addition to private practice, she also teaches at the University of Vermont in the Nutrition and Food Sciences Department, presents at professional conferences and trainings on topics related to embracing a non-diet approach to care, mindful eating, binge eating disorder, and weight stigma, and sits on the Board of Directors for The Center for Mindful Eating. Recognized as an expert in the field, Dana has been quoted in Time, Health, EatingWell, and Reader’s Digest.

Outside of her professional work, you can find Dana in her kitchen experimenting with new ingredients and creating new recipes, with her nose in a Lonely Planet book planning her next international adventure, practicing staying present on the mat at the yoga studio, or snuggling her soft, squishy, incredibly sweet black cat, Harbor.

Dana is a skilled, empathetic, knowledgeable clinician. Her ability to hone in on a client’s needs and be able to directly address them thoroughly is powerful. Her skills far surpass that of a traditional dietitian, offering compassionate counsel, meeting clients where they are at and helping them make positive progress towards their goals.
