About Hannah Allen, PhD, RDN, LDN
Dr. Hannah Allen is a Registered and Licensed Dietitan/Nutritionist who has a B.S. and Ph.D. in nutritional sciences from the University of Florida. Her specialty is in working with those with eating and body image issues. Hannah's focus is to help clients feel better about themselves and their lives by helping them heal eating issues and improve body image. With these changes, her clients find taking care of themselves and eating healthfully much easier to do.
She has over 10 years of experience in a clinical research setting where she was involved with prescribing medical nutrition therapy to children with epilepsy. During this time she specialized in using food as medicine for children who did not respond to traditional treatment.
She has been interested in alternative approaches to eating and weight for several years and has been studying intuitive eating, treatment of disordered eating and eating disorders, and Health At Every Size (HAES). She is passionate about helping clients tune in to their internal signals and embrace the intuitive eater within, as well helping clients embrace body positivity and body acceptance.
In September 2017, she began training with Karin to specialize in helping those with eating issues, including eating disorders, and to help clients become intuitive eaters, and began seeing clients in May. Always interested in expanding her knowledge and skills, she continues on-going training with Karin, and is also training in the use of the Enneagram personality typing system to enhance her work with clients.
Hannah is a member of the American Nutrition and Dietetic Association, American Academy of Nutrition, and the American Society of Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition.
