About Anna Marie
Have you ever felt stuck or like food was just too complicated? You've heard all of the messaging around "eat this, not that" and you just feel lost. Maybe you're in recovery from a life-threatening eating disorder or have struggled with disordered eating habits. Let me be your guide to help you make peace with food again.
I am a Registered Dietitian (RD) and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) with a passion for helping people improve their relationships with food and their bodies. I take a Health at Every Size® (HAES) approach to nutrition, which means that I do not believe weight is a valid indicator of health. I believe in making behavior goals, not weight goals. I use an intuitive eating model to help others improve their relationship with food. Both HAES and intuitive eating are evidence-based models. I work with individuals virtually and in-person.
I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Master's Degree in Nutritional Sciences. I completed my dietetic internship through the University of Texas at Austin and am currently a Registered and Licensed Dietitian (LD) in Austin, Texas.
I regularly participate in supervision and consultation to further my knowledge and understanding in the treatment of eating disorders and associated conditions. I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) through the International Association for Eating Disorder Professionals. CEDS and CEDRD are the same credential for dietitians, as of 2021.
As the membership chair of Central Texas Eating Disorder Specialists, I help members get involved and stay connected in the Austin-area eating disorder professional community.
Personally, I am Christian and love working with Christian clients who want to integrate faith into their recovery. (Although I work with clients of any background). My faith is my most important value, and I've seen first hand how diet culture can make its way into the church and I want to help you untangle your relationship with food from your relationship with Jesus.
"So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31
I started my career before I got married, so you may know me by my maiden name, Anna Marie Oglesbee.
