Kaitlin Williams Eckstein, MPH, RDN, LDN

Registered Dietitian, Director of Social Media

Welcome! I’m Kaitlin Eckstein, a registered dietitian in Maryland. 

 

I’ve been a dietitian for 6 years and see clients in Greenbelt and Columbia, Maryland, as well as virtually across the US. 

 

I love helping clients foster a healthy relationship with food through intuitive eating, while also addressing their health concerns, without restrictive dieting. I believe you can meet your nutrition goals without removing your favorite foods.

 

I also became passionate about women’s health after my own journey to motherhood, and enjoy supporting women whether they are hoping to regulate their cycles, get pregnant, and those who are pregnant and postpartum.

 

As a new mom, I understand the challenges that can come with taking care of a family, while also taking care of yourself.

My Approach:

As a HAES-aligned dietitian, I take a weight inclusive approach. Instead of focusing on the numbers on the scale, we work together to create a routine that will help you feel better. By making small and sustainable changes, you’ll build healthy habits that will last a lifetime, instead of going on another crash diet that was designed to fail you.

My goal is to support you every step of the way. From providing the nutrition knowledge you need, to figuring out how to make it work in your everyday life. 

With a culinary background and a love for cooking, I often meal plan with clients in session to bring the joy back to eating while creating a plan that is tailored to their needs.

What our clients are saying…

“I like that Kaitlin is not focus on calories but on eating healthy, which is a manageable way of managing weight during this life stage. Kaitlin set a safe, no-judgment space where I felt comfortable to chat and share my challenges.”

“My A1C has come down from 7.6 to 6.9, my glucose levels are within the normal range, and I have lost 9 pounds. Ms. Williams played a central role in all of this, providing crucial information, honest feedback, and an excellent listening ear. She has been crucial to me achieving my goals. I commend her heartily. You are very lucky to have her on your team!”
“Kaitlin was very warm, friendly, courteous and patient. She really listened to me.
