Registered Dietitian & Medical Nutrition Therapist
Taylor Aasand, MPH, RDN is an eating disorder registered dietitian with a public health
background and a passion for policy. She has dedicated her career to counseling and pursuing policy change around weight stigma and eating disorder care in Arizona. She is a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, having been certified and trained by Evelyn Tribole, one of the authors of Intuitive Eating.
Taylor has experience working with eating disorders at all levels of care: inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient settings. She practices from a weight neutral, health at every size lens, noting the importance of patient centered care, rather than the medical norm of weight centric care. Taylor knows that a patient’s weight is only one piece of the puzzle, and ultimately not something to try to “control”.
Taylor enjoys working in partnership with her patients to help them heal their relationship with food, exercise, their bodies and by extension, themselves. Taylor believes her patients possess the inner wisdom to heal and grow in recovery, she just helps them find it.
Taylor is immensely grateful for a career in which she continues to grow and learn, every day. Mostly, she is thankful for her patients who have taught her more than she knew was possible.
