Nutrition Therapist, RD, LDN
Erin is a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist. She is also a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist. She attended State University of New York, College at Oneonta. In 2013, she earned her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics. She went on to complete her Combined Dietetic Internship and Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics in 2014. She is highly qualified and knowledgeable in this field. We are honored to have her on our team.
Erin believes that the food we eat can play a powerful role in our health. At the same time, she recognizes that nutrition is just one piece of the puzzle. There is no one right way to eat, and sometimes the pursuit of the “perfect” diet can have negative impacts on our emotional and mental well-being. Food and nutrition should not be an added source of stress – we have enough of that already! Her goal is to keep nutrition as simple as possible, while helping you meet your highest potential.
The food we eat (or don’t eat) can have significant impacts on our mental health. A hungry brain is an anxious brain! Not to mention, many people find themselves turning to food during periods of stress. Emotional eating, stress eating, and binge eating are all powerful coping mechanisms that may present during periods of uncertainty, and they are nothing to be ashamed of. Erin can help you identify where these behaviors are coming from, and work with you and your therapist to overcome these challenges.
Erin considers herself a “recovering perfectionist” and applies this approach to her nutrition counseling practice. She will encourage you to choose better over perfect, and will support you along the way to making lasting behavior changes.
Erin has been a dietitian for 7 years and specializes in diabetes and sports nutrition. She uses the principles of Intuitive Eating* and weight inclusivity as a framework for her practice. Intuitive eating is the process of learning to trust your body and tune in to hunger and fullness cues. It involves accepting that bodies come in different sizes. She is passionate about helping her clients break the dieting cycle and reclaim their love of food.
