Nutrition Therapy and Body Image Support

The most common reason my clients start working with me: they are tired of spending so much of their time, energy and money dieting, obsessed with food and want their brain space to be free for all the other important things in their life. Do you relate?

With so much conflicting information circulating, it can make you feel more stressed, overwhelmed and overall confused around what to believe and where to start.

Whether you’ve tried every diet in the book, are recovering from disordered eating, want to improve your body image, discover your ‘healthy’ or find food and body freedom, we’re here for you!


What Are Some Signs Of A Disordered Relationship With Food And Your Body?

  • obsessing about your food, appearance or weight
  • comparing what you eat to your friend, partner or influencer on social media
  • feeling like the number on the scale dictates your day; your mood, what you eat or how you exercise
  • always ordering the ‘healthiest’ or lowest calorie option on the menu – even if you want something else
  • feeling inflexible with spontaneous plans or when familiar foods aren’t available
  • compensating in some way for what you ate or will eat
  • feeling guilty after eating
  • feeling out of control around certain foods, or keeping certain foods out of the house to prevent bingeing
  • eating differently when you’re alone vs. with others
  • eating in secret, sneaking or hiding food

Together We Can Make A Plan To Help You Feel Your Best, Without Feeling Obsessed.

What would that look like?


Being able to enjoy a weekend with friends, without feeling like “diet starts Monday”


Not have the number on the scale dictate your day or mood (even say ‘goodbye’ to it for good!)


Learn to trust and work with your body, instead of against it.

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics at New York University before completing my dietetic internship training at Massachusetts General Hospital, where I completed 1600+ hours of supervised clinical practice with a concentration on intuitive eating and public relations. I hold an active RDN credential through the Commission on Dietetic Registration and am a member of International Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). I also complete regular ongoing training and supervision in eating disorders, nutrition therapy and evidence based care.

I’m Brenna (she/her)! I’m a registered dietitian and offer nutrition therapy and body image support for clients who want to recover from disordered eating, navigate food sensitivities/allergies, want to ditch food guilt, move away from diet culture, improve their health and relationship with food and body. When not seeing clients, I love biking to the beach, taking a candlelit yoga class, and exploring the Bay Area.

I’m based in San Francisco, CA and see all clients virtually. I practice in California, Massachusetts, Florida, Utah, Colorado, New York, Michigan, Arizona and a few other states. I’m actively getting licensed in other states so if you have a request for a specific state, let me know during our call and I’m happy to share more.

I am out of network with all insurance panels. Some clients prefer this as it can increase privacy and confidentiality. I am happy to provide superbills monthly that you can submit to your insurance for out of network reimbursement.

To find out what your benefits are, call the number on the back of your insurance card.

 Ask to speak to a representative about your out of network benefits for ‘medical nutrition therapy’ using the code 97802 and 97803.

Ask if your benefits apply once you meet a deductible or not, how much your deductible is, how you have already met this year, and when your year starts/will reset your deductible. Remember that these calls give you an estimate of benefits and coverage but are not a guarantee of coverage.

Absolutely! We believe in a team approach and can coordinate care with your other healthcare providers. We’ll send you a release of information request which allows us to be in touch with your team members and ensure we’re all on the same page so we can provide you with the best care possible.

Instead of traditional cookie cutter meal plans, we focus on nutrition education, brainstorm meal ideas, discuss overall patterns of eating, explore your relationship with food, debunk food myths and overcome challenges related to past diets and food rules. Our goal is to enhance your confidence in making food choices.

The duration varies, but on average, clients work with us for about 6 months – more or less, depending on their individual journey and progress. Keep in mind that there is no “right” amount of time to work with a Registered Dietitian. It’s all about what’s right for you and we can continue having open discussions about your needs and what support feels right for you.

If our standard rates are out of your budget, please ask us about sliding scale availability. I hold 4 spots for sliding scale clients and am happy to work with you to find a plan that works for you. You will tell me a budget that works for you for weekly or bi-weekly sessions and we will create a custom plan.
