Anne Mittnacht, MPH, RD, CEDRD

Meet Anne!  Anne’s life passions lie deep in helping those of all ages overcome eating disorders and disordered eating. Anne works with her clients to better develop a positive relationship with food.  She also provides yoga therapy to those with a history of complex trauma, often co-existing with eating disorders. 

But, don’t take our word for it, hear from Anne herself! 

“In a culture where we are constantly bombarded with misinformation about food, the essential act of nourishing the body becomes complicated, and the joy of eating is easily replaced with fear. 

I use a non-diet, evidence-informed approach to nutrition therapy, aiming to bring the joy of eating back to the table. A truly healthy relationship with food is one that is non-restrictive, that includes all foods and nutrients, and that is based on internal hunger/fullness cues. 

Full recovery is possible and I am very excited to help you make the first steps toward reclaiming a positive relationship with food.”

After receiving her  Bachelor of Arts at Middlebury College and her Masters of Public Health and Nutrition at The University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill, Anne spent her time working with children and adolescents at Veritas Collaborative’s eating disorder treatment program for children in North Carolina.

During this time, Anne  was the primary investigator on a study conducted with Dr. Cynthia Bulik at the UNC Center for Excellence in Eating Disorders. Her findings that were published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders, evaluated the consensus on nutrition counseling practices among registered dietitians treating individuals with anorexia nervosa.

Although Anne is a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP), she’s also  a certified Sivananda Yoga Instructor and has received specialized training in Curvy Yoga, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, and Motivational Interviewing. In her free time, Anne leads cooking and nutrition classes for children that explore nutritional science while celebrating the joy of preparing and sharing food.

Anne is a member of the Multi-Service Eating Disorder Association (MEDA) and the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP).  She receives ongoing training and supervision for trauma work through the Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute in Brookline.
