More Details and FAQ’s about Mackenzie
Mackenzie's Counseling Style & Approach
In our work, I love to use a combination of approaches during our sessions, most of which are firmly rooted in compassionate care and an unwavering support and validation of your lived experience.
In our sessions, we will embark on an exploration of your thoughts and feelings as it relates to food, nutrition and your relationship to it, as well as your relationship to your body. We will often work together to identify barriers, make connections between past experiences and current beliefs held around food and your body.
Teens (13+) and adults who have active eating disorders, or are struggling with their relationship to food and trust in their body.
Some other areas of specialty include:
- Working with soon-to-be or already-there parents!
- Working with folks who have diabetes
More About Mackenzie (aka Fun Facts!)
I’m very fun… only until about 9pm though! I am a mother to a tiny human, I love cooking, baking and most importantly, eating. I have type 1 diabetes, I am a crazy plant lady and I used to live in Colorado. While I lived there, I was an avid hiker and even climbed a 14,000 foot mountain once!
Professional Background & Credentials
Mackenzie received her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Metropolitan State University of Denver. After completing her Dietetic Internship, she accepted a clinical position at a community hospital just outside of Denver, Colorado. She went on to relocate from Denver to Philly in 2019, this time choosing to work in food service as a campus dietitian at Drexel University. It was here, working with young adults that she recognized the harm of diet culture on such a vulnerable population. Mackenzie is passionate about helping others heal their relationships to food by making the experience approachable and fulfilling again.
