Kristie Uniacke, MS, RD, CEDRD-S

My goal is to support my clients in establishing harmony between the mind, body, and soul. I want my clients to understand that food isn’t only a gateway to our physical health, but also our mental, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I work with my clients through an individualized approach to explore and cultivate a relationship of balance and compassion towards food, health, and body.

How I Work

I believe it is essential to create a foundation of nutrition and health education to counter myths and misconceptions that are rampant in our society. As a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian, I appreciate the full picture and how nutrition and health interact within a client’s life. It is my aim to support my clients in finding and flexing with the balance that is critical to achieving their best possible life alongside the best version of themselves. I enjoy integrating a values-based approach to nutrition therapy as we work to understand that food is essential to achieve comprehensive wellness.

My Why

I am deeply passionate about supporting others in their brave journey towards wellness. I have devoted my career to the treatment of individuals suffering from eating disorders and disordered eating because I believe in the totality of the human experience and I see food as a vehicle to obtain a more rich and meaningful life. I believe that when I can assist my client’s in expanding their perception of nutrition and health that I am guiding them towards a deeper understanding of and compassion for their authentic self.

Training & Experience

I began my journey in Dietetics 12 years ago. I graduated from the University of Connecticut with my Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics where I was accepted into the Coordinated program that incorporated the 1200 clinical rotation hours into my four years of schooling. From there, I decided to further develop my RD by pursuing my Master’s Degree in Nutrition at Northeastern University. I quickly found my niche in working with eating disorders and disordered eating. Over the past eight years, I have had the opportunity to work at all levels of care from inpatient to outpatient, with clients from age 8 to 80, treating individuals and full family systems. Two years ago, I became a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) through The International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) and recently became an approved supervisor to support other clinicians in their pursuit of becoming a certified expert in the treatment of eating disorders.
