Shelby Santin Registered Dietitian

Hi! My name is Shelby. I am Registered Dietitian specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and disordered eating. Throughout my career, I have had experience working with clients at all levels of care. Most recently, working with adolescents and families at the residential level of care. I received a degree in Dietetics from University of Maryland and then went on to complete my Dietetic Internship through Virginia Tech Northern Virginia program.

Growing up in an Italian family, I was taught that food was something that was meant to be shared with family, friends and truly be enjoyed. This has instilled a desire to use my career as a Dietitian to help people reject the diet mentality and make peace with food. I believe that developing a healthy relationship with food and exercise is not only important for optimal physical and mental health but also to be able to be fully engaged in all the positive moments life has to offer.

I provide nutrition counseling using the principles of Health At Every Size © and Intuitive Eating. This means that I believe that no one food or way of eating has moral value. I work with clients to learn how to trust their bodies and reconnect to their internal wisdom by letting go of food rules and the restrictive diet mentality. I support my clients and their loved ones to unlearn messages they have heard from diet culture.
