Kristin Williams, RDN, LD, CEDRD
My name is Kristin Williams and I am a registered dietitian specialized in working with individuals with eating disorders, disordered eating, emotional eating and a history of chronic dieting.
I have found that the foundational component of properly nourishing yourself is to first make peace with food. This involves letting go of rigid food rules and the diet mentality and learning how to trust your own internal hunger and fullness cues.
I use a non-diet approach with an "all foods fit" motto. I believe that part of good nutrition is enjoying your food and finding satisfaction in eating. I also believe that black and white thinking around food can lead to disordered eating.
In my practice, I use a non-weight focused approach where I work with individuals on making healthy behavioral changes and letting their weight fall where it will while empowering clients to accept and embrace their unique bodies. I assist individuals in incorporating intuitive eating into their every day life, help them to find types of movement that are both enjoyable and social and encourage them to embrace a Health at Every Size® concept.
Education and Experience
I am a registered dietitian licensed in the state of Texas and hold a degree in Nutritional Sciences from Texas A&M University. I completed my dietetic internship at Medical City Dallas Hospital and went on to become a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. This credential sets health professionals a part as clinicians who have met rigorous educational and skill requirements, have accumulated a minimum number of hours of qualifying work experience, have made a commitment to stay abreast of current development through the field through continuing education and have agreed to comply with the Association’s ethical principles.
I have experience working in both the inpatient as well as outpatient hospital setting providing medical nutrition therapy and outpatient nutrition counseling. I specialize in treating individuals with eating disorders and currently work at Eating Recovery Center, a world renown eating disorder treatment facility, working with individuals in the inpatient, residential and partial hospitalization program.
I am a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals and the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians.
