Erin VanHattum, RD, LD

I'm the owner of Collaborative Nutrition Counseling LLC. I'm currently offering nutrition counseling virtually and in-person at an office space within Cultivate Counseling & Wellness in NE Minneapolis. 

I received my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition & Dietetics at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. I completed a Dietetic Internship at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR. I have more than 10 years of experience in the field of Nutrition and have worked with clients of all ages, from birth to the very elderly. Prior to transitioning into private practice, I held roles as a Dietitian in inpatient, outpatient, and residential mental health settings.

 

My areas of expertise include:

  • Eating Disorders and disordered eating

  • Intuitive Eating

  • Pregnancy and postpartum nutrition

  • Nutrition for optimization of mental health

  • Nutrition for general health & well-being 

My Nutrition Philosophy 

  • I'm truly passionate about helping individuals develop and maintain a peaceful relationship with food.

  • I whole-heartedly believe that proper nutrition plays an important role in keeping one’s mind and body functioning to the best of its abilities, but that it doesn’t need to be as complicated as society might lead one to believe.

  • I believe in an "all foods fit" approach and will strive to help you optimize your nutritional intake while honoring your body's hunger cues and genuine cravings.

  • I practice from a Health At Every Size perspective and focus on behaviors with food over the number on the scale - because there is so much more to health than what a person weighs!

  • I aim to meet clients where they are at while offering support and accountability to make sustainable, lifelong changes. No fads, gimmicks, or dieting, ever.
