She is a passionate advocate for clients seeking a healthier, more nourishing relationship with food and mealtime.
With more than three decades of experience as a registered/licensed dietitian nutritionist, Tammy has served in multiple dimensions of care including inpatient and outpatient settings, advocacy, and clinical training as Director of IAEDP Certification. As the first registered dietitian to become certified with IAEDP in 1993 and the first Alabama dietitian to receive the certified specialist in sports dietetics in 2007, Tammy is a sought-after consultant, speaker, and leader in the nutrition field.
A frequent speaker at national and international conferences, Tammy is committed to sharing evidence-based nutritional science and integrating them with both practical and innovative modalities. She is a strong proponent of a collaborative treatment approach in helping clients achieve full eating disorder recovery and whole, sustainable healing.
By choosing practices to create calm and help manage fear around mealtime, we work to banish shame from the equation. We begin to make food choices inspired by self-compassion, not fear. And a desire to feel in control is replaced by the feeling of being grounded and non-reactive. – Tammy Beasley
