Hannah Allen, PhD
Dr. Hannah Allen has a B.S. and Ph.D. in nutritional sciences from the University of Florida and is completing training with Dr. Kratina to specialize 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 and Health At Every Size (HAES). Recently, she began intensive training with Karin to implement this work in her practice. She is passionate about helping clients tune into their internal signals and embrace the intuitive eater within. She is also passionate about body positivity and body acceptance and practicing health at every size with her clients.
Although she is experienced and has a PhD, Hannah is not yet registered or licensed, and as such is working with clients as a Nutrition Coach under the direct supervision of Dr. Karin Kratina. Insurance cannot be billed for her services until she is is licensed and registered, which will occur in June 2018.
Hannah is a member of the American Nutrition and Dietetic Association, American Academy of Nutrition, and the American Society of Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition.
