Meet Emma (she/her). Two priorities within Emma’s approach to care include trust and vulnerability. Working to find peace and acceptance with food and our bodies requires unlearning the societal-norm of what our health and appearance “should be.” Given this, shame and guilt are often tied to the ways in which we take care of ourselves. Emma looks to work with her clients, guiding them to navigate and find understanding in their relationship with food and their bodies. This involves unconditional permission for them to show up for themselves and their values in life. Through a fat positive, Health at Every Size® (HAES®) approach, Emma works with her clients to find peace with food utilizing non-diet nutrition counseling. This can include dismantling disordered eating and chronic dieting, navigating a new chronic illness through medical nutrition therapy, intuitive eating, and body acceptance and liberation.

Emma is a queer, fat positive, non-diet Registered Dietitian (RD) and a Masters in Health Professions Education (MS-HPEd). She is also a Certified Intuitive Eating Counseling (CIEC). She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Simmons College with a minor in photography and her Masters from MGH Institute of Health Professions. She completed her Dietetic Internship at Aramark Healthcare in Philadelphia, PA. Returning to the Massachusetts area, Emma’s work in dismantling fatphobia and diet culture began in the clinical setting at UMass Children’s Medical Center. In 2019, she began her work in private practice and has since fully transitioned to this space.

In 2020 she took her passion for this work into academia. She is currently in MGH Institute of Health Professions’ PhD program and a Teaching Assistant at Harvard Extension School. Her strongest aspiration as a healthcare provider is to facilitate change within education by providing an evidence-based, safe, ethical space for individuals in all bodies. 

In her free time, Emma enjoys dancing with her plants, connecting with artists, and spending time with Alex and their French Bulldogs, Stella + Luna.



Working with Emma has been an absolute gift to my mental and emotional health. Our work together has allowed me to reexamine the negative feelings I've held about my weight and physical appearance, and understand those feelings as the result of navigating a fatphobic society and world that makes very little space for larger bodies, especially those of other marginalized identities.


Throughout weekly discussions of who I wanted to be, my relationship with food, and the impacts of social media (specifically on women's unrealistic expectations), I was able to find who I was able to become the person I was always meant to be. She did not only help heal my relationship with food but heal my relationship with myself. She prompted me with questions and ideas that made me take a step back and realize what mattered—my happiness.


“With compassion, humor, and skill, Emma consistently places individuals at ease, helping them to rediscover pleasure and vitality in a balanced nutritional approach, as well as to reconnect with feeling love and appreciation for their own bodies."
