Hi! I'm Carly! I'm a Jesus follower, wife, dog mom, Registered Dietitian and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. I started my nutrition career in sports nutrition and while spending time in that "world" I was able to learn about eating disorders. I then transitioned into the eating disorder field by accepting a position as a dietitian at a Partial Hospitalization/Intensive Outpatient Program, where I was able to apply the nutrition science I had learned in counseling athletes to help individuals with eating disorders overcome their fears. I worked in a higher level of care for several years before transitioning to the Outpatient level of care.
My Nutrition Philosophy
I have a passion for lifelong health by nourishing the body and engaging in joyful movement. I use an all foods fit food philosophy and embrace intuitive eating principles to help my clients heal their relationship with all foods. I have a passion for nutrition science and believe in the power of science to help combat eating disorders thoughts. I support my clients on their recovery journey by providing individualized meal plans, conducting exposure sessions, providing nutrition education, and exploring relationships with movement. I have spent my career walking alongside those with eating disorders and helping them build a recovery lifestyle.
My faith has been a cornerstone in my life. A key part of my theology (and my practice model) is rooted in the verse Matthew 25:35.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink."
I believe God has called all believers to care for those in need. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to live out my faith in this way in my work as an eating disorder dietitian.
I believe full recovery is possible. I use my nutrition knowledge and faith to inform my nutrition practices to help my clients recover from their eating disorder. If you feel that I may be able to help you on your recovery journey, please don't hesitate to contact me.
