Short answer: I hold both credentials and can practice as both a therapist and a dietitian!
Longer answer: When I began my career as a dietitian, I quickly realized that my schooling had left out one very important piece of the puzzle - counseling. I could spew off nutrition facts and understand how to calculate energy needs in my sleep. But the skills to support someone when they were experiencing big feelings (a very common reality in eating disorder work!) felt foreign to me. And that didn’t sit right. That’s what led me back to school to get a degree in counseling.
