ABOUT US

Hey Friends!

Crushing diet culture is cool. Crushing it with your bestie is even cooler. We first met working at a non-profit eating disorder center in Columbus, OH. As baby dietitians, we started within a month of each other, both without any prior experience treating disordered eating. We had a lot to learn and supported each other as we grew into the expert clinicians we are today.

Together, we have over a decade’s worth of experience working with disordered eating. Throughout our journey, we have created deep connections within the community and have helped hundreds of individuals heal.

Our passion not only comes from seeing these successes, but also from our past personal experiences. We know first hand how horrible and all-consuming these negative thoughts can be. This has fully inspired our efforts to create a space for the general public to learn about food freedom and to take this information into our community. Our goal is to help prevent others’ from the continued suffering caused by an unhealthy relationship with food, movement and body image.

Let’s crush diet culture together, one step at a time!

Best,

Taylor & Jessi

What Our Beautiful & Happy Clients Say About Us

Jessi has been so easy to work with. She has shown me ways to change that work for me to become more comfortable with food. Jessi is partly the reason for my success in recovery.

Former Client

My dietitian has been a tremendous help to me this year. She challenged me to reach my goals, but understands that change does not happen overnight. I have learned so much and grown a lot, I wouldn't have been able to do this on my own. I am so grateful for their help and guidance.

Former Client

Taylor has been such a fundamental part of my recovery. When I came into her office a year and a half ago, I was afraid to own a body. She taught me how to nourish and respect my body. Food no longer holds a place of anxiety in my life anymore.
