About Me

Hello and welcome! My name is Taryn (she, hers) and I am a Registered Dietitian and Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics with over 10 years of experience in the field, specializing in helping clients heal their relationship with food and exercise.

I utilize a non-diet, weight inclusive approach to help clients make peace with their food and body and trust their internal cues. I operate from an all foods fit philosophy and incorporate principles of intuitive eating, mindful eating and Health at Every Size in my work with clients. I have extensive experience working with eating disorders/disordered eating, sports nutrition and medical nutrition therapy for many other health conditions. Previously, I have worked at all levels of care (residential, PHP, and IOP) for eating disorders. I also have experience working as a sports dietitian in collegiate athletics and with elite and professional athletes supporting their nutrition needs. It would be an honor to support and be part of your journey to creating a more peaceful relationship with food, your body and exercise.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Biology at the State University of New York – College at Geneseo, where I also ran cross country and track competitively for four years. I then completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics at the University of Connecticut and continued on to receive my Master of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology from Oregon State University.

As a lifelong athlete myself, you might find me racing my bike in a road, cyclocross or gravel race. I also enjoy hiking, urban farming, home improvement projects and outdoor adventures with my yellow lab, Roswell (who sometimes can be found in the background of virtual sessions).
