Lauren Cash, MA, MS, RDN considers herself to be a nutrition therapist as she blends her degrees in psychology and nutrition to bring empathic nutrition counseling to her clients.
Lauren works with children, adolescents, and adults, partnering with them in achieving their well-being goals and intentions within a non-diet approach. Rather than simply working to change the behavior, Lauren also works with the client to develop and understand the psychological factors at work around their eating behaviors. She is passionate about helping people from all backgrounds create peace with their food and bodies in a compassionate, nonjudgmental way.
Lauren specializes in eating disorders and disordered eating, having been in the field for the last 6+ years. She has worked at eating disorder treatment facilities as part of the treatment teams working with both adolescents and adults diagnosed with eating disorders. Lauren is receiving ongoing supervision in order to become a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian from the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals.
Lauren utilizes Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size® approaches as she is a non-diet dietitian. She believes that focusing on behaviors, rather than body size and weight, is most helpful in the improvement in health outcomes. Her office is a safe space to explore health beliefs and process the affects of the diet culture that we are immersed in on a daily basis. Read more about her approach and philosophy here & here.
Lauren is actively involved in many professional groups related to the fields of nutrition, dietetics, and eating disorders.
