Emily Murray, RD, LDN, is nutrition therapist that strives to help children, teens, and adults establish an intuitive relationship with food.
Emily Murray is a native of Franklin, Tennessee, and graduated from Independence High School before earning her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, Tennessee. Upon graduation, Emily completed her dietetic residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, during which she spent time with the Adolescent Medicine Team at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, providing medical nutrition therapy and individualized nutrition counseling to children, adolescents, and young adults with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and OCD, in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Other past training and experiences include clinical dietetics, nutrition education programming, and mental health advocacy. Emily also has experience working with Division 1 Student-Athletes at Tennessee Technological University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
As a Health at Every Size (HAES) practitioner, Emily celebrates body diversity, challenges cultural assumptions, values “body knowledge”, and respects social conditions that influence eating options. She desires to help individuals establish a healthy relationship with food that is flexible, intuitive, and satisfying through adequate nourishment of the body, mind, and soul.
Emily enjoys working with a wide range of clients—from individuals who simply desire to establish a healthier balance with food, to those who struggle with clinically diagnosable eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, or avoidant restrictive food intake disorder. Emily also provides coaching to children who are selective eaters and families who desire to make meal times a more pleasant experience.
