Hi, my name is Callie, I am a registered dietitian living and working in San Diego, CA. I grew up in Birmingham, AL but moved across the country a couple years ago to my now favorite city! I attended The University of Mississippi, earning a Bachelor of Applied Sciences in Dietetics and Nutrition. I completed my Dietetic Internship and Masters in Nutrition Sciences at Samford University. I have worked in various levels of eating disorder treatment including residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient. During the practicum portion of my dietetic internship I had the opportunity to work in a residential eating disorder and substance abuse treatment facility. Through this experience I was introduced to an anti-diet approach to nutrition, Intuitive Eating, and Health at Every Size which fueled my desire to continue to work with individuals struggling with eating disorders and learn about the benefits of compassionate, weight inclusive care.
I currently practice nutrition therapy with a focus on Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size. I believe that everyone can reestablish a trusting relationship with their body, food, and movement. I fell strongly that everyone deserves access to compassionate and inclusive health care – regardless of weight, shape, color, size, orientation, disability, or disease. I strive to provide a space that helps individuals feel empowered to take care of their bodies without the influence of diet culture.
I value opportunities for continued growth in the field and am always looking to deepen my understanding of therapeutic modalities and interventions researched and recommended for the treatment of eating and feeding disorders. I have experience providing trauma-informed care and utilizing motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy as part of my nutrition counseling approach.
I am excited to get to know you and begin supporting you through recovery and towards a more freeing relationship with food, movement, and body image.
