I’m a Registered Dietitian at Restored Purpose Counseling. I am licensed in both Florida and Georgia and I see clients virtually. I specialize in working with individuals with eating disorders and disordered eating, as well as anyone who is tired of dieting and wants to have a more peaceful relationship with food and their body.

I take a non-diet and weight-inclusive approach when working with clients and I feel that our counseling relationship should be collaborative. It’s important to me to listen to your lived experience. I use the principles of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size® when working with clients and I believe that all foods can be part of a healthy diet.

When I’m not working you can usually find me hanging out with my dog Wally. I love reading and spending time outside, especially hiking. I am also passionate about travel and I can’t wait for my next international trip.

Hey there! I’m Susan. I’m a Registered Dietitian at Restored Purpose Counseling seeing clients virtually. I work with individuals recovering from eating disorders such as binge eating and orthorexia and disordered eating caused by diet culture and chronic dieting. I believe that creating freedom with food is the pathway to creating full freedom to live your best life. My goal is to help you create a relationship with food and your body that allows you to feel your absolute best, mind and body.

As a certified intuitive eating counselor, I utilized intuitive eating principles to help you heal your relationship with food and your body. Every individual has a unique relationship with food and their body. I strive to support you in a way that allows you to nourish your body while learning how food and your body can work together.

As a lifelong Wisconsin gal, you may be surprised to know that I’m not a fan of winter. Escaping to a beach in the winter is a must. If I’m not planning a tropical vacation, you can probably find me snuggled up with a blanket and my pup, reading the latest Colleen Hoover and eating a bowl of popcorn. I need a good blend of resting time and social interaction so you may find me exploring for good food, watching a football game with friends or spending the day at the lake.

I am an anti-diet Registered Dietitian at Restored Purpose Counseling seeing clients virtually. I work alongside individuals with a variety of eating disorders and disordered eating, namely ARFID, binge-eating, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and orthorexia. I utilize a Health-at-Every-Size approach and allows me to use a weight-inclusive lens by looking at the whole person. I have experience using exposure-response-prevention to help decrease anxiety and fear with certain foods.

If I had to describe myself in one saying it would be an outgoing introvert. I am a Tampa local and you’ll find me in my free time cooking a new recipe or playing cozy video games with a candle, blanket, and of course – fuzzy socks. My favorite beverage is a Dirty Chai, which I think reflects my personality. Take the excitement from espresso, the warm, cozy flavors from chai, and you get a unique blend.

My passion stems from helping individuals fall in love with food, or fall back in love. I don’t think there is a better way to understand a person’s history or culture without considering the food and their relationship with food that they had growing up. For me, it’s the stories shared regarding food that can
paint a picture. I implore you to get curious, what drives you to eat the food you eat?
