I'm Katy Harvey.

 I'm a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) with a master’s degree in dietetics and nutrition.  

 Even health professionals like doctors and other dietitians often give misguided advice, making health and recovery a challenge.  

I’ve learned that most of the world around us doesn’t “get it” when it comes to having a healthy relationship with food. 

My passion is helping you find peace with food - and within yourself.  

I grew up in a small town in Iowa. I’ve always been into teaching, science and psychology. Before studying dietetics I thought about becoming a special education teacher, and then a criminal profiler.






 Using nutrition therapy to help people find peace with food allows me to be part teacher, part scientist, part therapist. And I scratch my itch for solving crimes with true crime podcasts.  

I studied dietetics at Iowa State University (go Cyclones!) and attended grad school at the University of Kansas Medical Center. While working with breast cancer survivors in and after grad school, I encountered the deep psychology behind the way women feel about their bodies, and the way this drives them to make decisions about their eating. From there I landed in the field of eating disorders.  

I’ve worked in many settings throughout the eating disorder field, and have found my home in outpatient private practice where I can help people with compulsive and disordered eating find peace in their everyday lives. 



 about their bodies and about their eating - using a non-diet approach. 

I started my company in 2012, seeing a handful of clients on the side while still working my regular full-time job split between the hospital and corporate wellness. Since then my private practice has grown to full-time and I launched my blog in 2014 (which now has over 500 posts!). I am also the writer of several e-books and the creator of e-courses. I love creating, connecting and experimenting with new ideas!


Somehow nutrition caught my eye and it has turned out to be the perfect blend of my interests.

I love helping people find peace within themselves...
