Eating Disorder Nutrition Counseling

Niki Pillitterri is an eating disorder dietitian near me in Newtown, PA.

Hi, I'm Niki Pillitteri, RDN, LDN!

I am a registered dietitian who provides trauma-informed care who is fat positive, neuro-affirming, LGBTQ+ affirming, and rooted in Health at Every Size (HAES®) principles to support my clients in taking better care of themselves.


My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and collaborative. I strive to provide a safe enough space for clients to use as a means to explore healing and to find their authenticity to allow their true self to thrive.

Registered Dietitian


Lets Get to Know Each Other!

I specialize in eating disorders and support my clients in healing their relationship with food, movement, and their body.  I work to help clients reduce shame around their eating and eating-related behaviors and to acknowledge and challenge the harmful body hierarchies that exist within our society.

I also have a passion for working with parents and families. As a mother of 2 young children, one of which has multiple severe food allergies, I know how complex of a job it is to navigate food in the
parent-child relationship. I use principles from the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding alongside principles of Intuitive Eating to support parents’ confidence in feeding their children while
fostering a healthy relationship with food and body in their littlest eaters.

Here's my experience & approach-

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from Rutgers University. I completed a dietetic internship with a concentration in nutrition education and counseling from Saint Elizabeth University.

I have over 10+ years in the field of nutrition and have spent my entire career working as an outpatient dietitian in private practices and spent a handful of years doing clinical work in a hospital too. I have been working at Beyond Therapy & Nutrition Center since 2021 providing nutrition therapy to those struggling with eating disorders, breaking free from diet culture, and working through body image concerns. I feel such gratitude to be here working alongside and supporting my clients each and every day.

I have provided annual workshops on working as an anti-diet dietitian to the Hopewell Valley Central High School’s sports medicine class for their annual career day.


I strive to always be an advocate alongside my clients as part of their team (alongside any other professionals they may have i.e. therapist, psychiatrist, primary care physician and/or other specialists). I work to honor my client’s intersecting identities, holding space for how they have shaped my client’s experiences and how they show up in this world. I can appreciate the toughness of this work, I welcome ambivalence into the room, and I do not believe in higher-level-of-care ultimatums.

I am always seeking to learn more, especially from folx with differing identities to understand those with different lived experiences from my own. I have most recently participated in small group trainings for gender-affirming eating disorder care and anti-racism education. I have also done extensive trainings and education on eating disorders, trauma-informed care, and body image work.


Eating Disorders: Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Anorexia and Anorexia in Larger Bodies, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Bulimia, Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders (OSFED)

Do you struggle with your relationship with food and/or your ability to nourish yourself regularly? Are you finding yourself navigating lots of rules around what you give yourself permission to eat and have foods that don’t feel safe to eat or keep in the home? I believe that all bodies are worthy of accessing tasty foods and having a variety of foods we enjoy. We can work together to explore and gently challenge the fears you have around foods, working to unlearn the harmful narrative we are constantly bombarded with around “healthy eating” and other diet culture influences. We can work together to help you make peace with food.

Body Image Concerns

Do you struggle with your relationship with your body? Do you find yourself being very critical of how your body looks and/or attempting to change its size? As someone who practices with a Health at Every Size (HAES®) approach, I will never pathologize your body. I believe all bodies deserve respect and care. We can explore ways to enhance your health without focusing on weight loss and find ways to nurture a more compassionate relationship

to your body through this healing work.

Food Allergies

Do you or your child struggle with navigating food allergies and need some guidance and support? As a parent of a child with multiple life-threatening food allergies, I can whole-heartedly

empathize with the challenges that food allergies bring into the room. We can work on ways to reduce anxiety at meals, offer variety and increase safety in feeding.

Child Feeding Concerns

Do you feel that your child is a picky eater or more selective with foods and that it is resulting in complicated meal times? Do you find it challenging navigating food shopping or meal planning with your child in mind? As a parent of two young toddlers, I know the frustration and joy (and mess!) that comes with these tasks. We can work together to navigate feeding your child in a way that reduces the stress and pressure and makes mealtimes more enjoyable and relaxed for all at the table.

Co-occurring Neurodivergence (ADHD, Autism)

Do you find yourself having challenges with feeding yourself as you navigate neurodivergence? We can work together to understand how to support keeping your body nourished and energized by understanding what works best for you and your body, supporting any sensory or executive functioning challenges while reducing shame and challenging the expectations society

and others place on eating behaviors.

When I'm out of the office...

I love going to comedy shows and concerts with my husband and friends, and also love exploring new parks and farms with my two toddlers.  I’ve always been an avid reader but since having kids I have found a new love for audiobooks.  I consider myself a pizza snob and while I’m not a coffee drinker (I love a good chai latte though!), 10 out of 10 times I will order coffee chip flavor at an ice cream shoppe.

Let's Work Together!

If you’re looking for nutrition therapy and want an anti-oppressive, weight-inclusive approach, please feel free to reach out!  I am licensed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Florida, and I can also see folks in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, New York, Michigan, Texas and Virginia.
