Anna Bisogno-Papa MS, RDN, LDN

Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Hello! My name is Anna, and I’m an eating disorder dietitian located in the Maryland area seeing clients in Greenbelt and Columbia, Maryland and virtually across the USA!

 

From a young age, diet culture taught me that my body was a problem that needed to be “fixed.” 

 

While I believed becoming a dietitian would teach me how to find the right body, I instead discovered that health does not have a “look.” I learned my relationship with food and my body was just as important as the foods that I was eating. It is my passion to work with clients on restoring not only their relationship with food, but finding peace and comfort in their bodies. It is a journey, but you are never alone in the journey to recovery.

My Approach:

 I am passionate about providing holistic support through your eating disorder recovery to help you navigate food and beyond. I take a person centered approach and begin by learning about you, your personal values and who YOU are behind your eating disorder. From there, I use empathy, active listening and gentle challenging to empower my clients to align with their values instead of with their eating disorder.  

I work with clients of all ages and backgrounds, including children and adolescents. My goal for parents is to feel empowered in fighting this illness with their child and I make sure that the whole family has the tools they need to support their loved one on their recovery journey. 

I am experienced in using the Family Based Therapy approach to ED treatment, and am Health at Every Size aligned. I also work with other members of your care team including therapists, psychiatrists, and doctors to provide my clients with the best possible care.
