NUTRITION THERAPY WITH A REGISTERED DIETITIAN NUTRITIONIST
FOR EATING DISORDERS, DISORDERED EATING & BODY IMAGE SUPPORT
Hi there! My name is Mackenzie Proctor!
I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who specializes in treating Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating and Body Image Healing.
I believe that the diet culture really is the worst and that you (yes, you!) can make peace with your body and food. Together we can work through some of the complex aspects of healing this relationship by combining Intuitive Eating practices and principles of Health at Every Size ®.
Healing is a journey, not a destination. It will be difficult, it will challenge you and it will have you exploring everything that makes you, you.
You are deserving and worthy of this journey and I promise, it will be so worth it.
Let’s shift the focus from restrictive dieting practices and whatever weird perception of “health” society has placed on you and get you back to trusting yourself and achieving food freedom!
You deserve to eat because you’re breathing
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 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 lastly, I enjoy painting… only happens about twice per year and the subject matter is either an elephant or a beta fish but hey-still counts!
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.
