Katherine Dittmann, MA, MS, RD, is a nutrition therapist and philosophical practitioner specializing in eating behaviors, having worked with disordered eating across the spectrum of care since 2008. She uses a food-positive and practical approach, weaving in mind-body therapeutics and philosophical inquiry to help people connect with their bodies and eat with more ease. Katherine holds certifications in Philosophical Counseling (from APPA), MindBody Therapy (from Embodied Philosophy), Mindful Self-Compassion (from Center for MSC), and Mindfulness-Based Yoga Therapy for Eating Disorders (Beverly Price, RD).
She completed her nutrition masters thesis by investigating eating attitudes, spiritual beliefs, and body awareness in women who practice yoga (Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention, 2009). Her philosophy masters thesis, Self-Compassion as an Ethical Attitude in Foucault’s Care of the Self (2021), proposes that the way in which we relate to ourselves constitutes our primary ethical relationship, enabling us to exercise freedom in self-cultivation and ethical interactions with the world.
