Hi there, I’m Christina Frangione, a Registered Dietitian, Certified Dietitian Nutritionist, and Registered Yoga Teacher practicing in Centerport, New York. Welcome to my website.

I went back to school for a degree in nutrition after I recovered from my own eating disorder and realized how much better my brain worked when it was properly fed. I was fascinated how the foods we eat impact our mood and health.

I originally thought I didn’t want to work with eating disorders because I didn’t want to be cliché, however, after trying out different areas of nutrition, I realized I kept being drawn back to the eating disorder field. It was only after I discovered Health at Every Size (HAES) and learned more about how eating disorders are a social justice issue that I knew I needed to be a part of this. I knew I would have the opportunity to promote healing and prevent future harm.

Throughout my career as a dietitian, I’ve worked in public health, long term care/sub acute rehab, food service, outpatient counseling, residential eating disorder treatment, and as an adjunct professor. My full time job before leaving to focus on private practice in October 2019 was at a level 1 trauma hospital. All that to say that I’ve had a lot of experience with a wide range of people and conditions!

I am currently accepting new clients for nutrition counseling out of my office in Centerport, New York. Check out this page to learn more about nutrition counseling services. I am also available for collaborations with other health care providers including podcast interviews, symposiums, or speaking engagements. Send me an e-mail to learn more.
