Meet Kristen
Your Expat Nutritionist


My Story

Hi there! My name is Kristen (she/her). United States born, Philadelphia raised, and currently residing in Hamburg, Germany.

Specializing in eating disorder recovery, I have spent years supporting women, men, adolescents, and families in finding a new relationship with food and their bodies. I help those struggling to break the cycle of dieting and normalize eating patterns. 

Using Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size (HAES) frameworks, along with motivational interviewing and counseling skills, the goal for our sessions will be to find individualized solutions that work for you! I aim to help clients find trust in their bodies again and establish normal eating patterns without restriction.

As one of the few English-speaking nutritionists in Hamburg, I aim to support fellow expats and internationals in Germany and the EU. If you are an international student, a study abroad student, or an international family with children who need nutrition support, I am here to help!
