LYNN CARLSON, RDN, LDN
Registered & Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist
As a Registered & Licensed Dietitian for the past 20 years, I specialize in helping people create, achieve, and maintain a healthy and happy relationship with food in order to feel their absolute best. I provide nutrition care for women, men, adolescents, and children using a highly personalized approach, tailored to each person's unique nutritional needs and lifestyle.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Let me HELP you GET OFF the DIET ROLLER COASTER, and DITCH unhealthy eating habits and disordered eating for good! As an eating disorder expert for the past 20 years, I help women, men, adolescents, and children create and maintain a healthy
and happy relationship with food and help them with the following...

Eating Disorders - Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and unspecified eating disorders
Oncology / Cancer Nutrition - for those living with a current cancer diagnosis; and nutritional wellness for cancer prevention and cancer survivors. (Incorporating cancer care and prevention into my nutrition practice has become extremely near and dear to my heart after my late husband passed away from an aggressive cancer in 2012).
Endocrine and hormonal changes that often occur after having kids, during “middle adulthood,” and/or during pre-menopause and menopause. As a mom of 5 kids, I understand the physical and lifestyle changes that can throw our bodies for a loop and will work to get you back to feeling better than ever before.
Gastrointestinal/Digestive issues, FODMAP diet, gut health
If you are struggling with ANY OR ALL of the above, know that you are not alone. I understand the stress, shame, frustration, and helplessness that often go hand-in-hand with these issues. No matter where someone is on their journey, I work alongside them in a safe, non-judgmental, supportive, and compassionate way. By combining my personal life experiences, my education and training (which is ongoing in this ever-evolving field), and my 20 years of professional experience, I'm able to help people achieve their nutrition and wellness goals and truly break free of their eating issues to develop a healthy, balanced, and peaceful relationship with food and their bodies. A life FREE from the stress of food, eating, and/or body image issues creates room for a life FULL of what's truly important.

After graduation, Lynn moved south from her hometown of Hockessin, Delaware when she earned a spot in the Mayo Clinic's highly competitive Dietetic Internship program in Jacksonville, Florida.
Following the completion of her internship at the Mayo Clinic, Lynn spent the next 5 years as the Lead Dietitian & Clinical Coordinator of Nutrition Services for the Eating Disorder Intensive Day Treatment Program at Wolfson Children's Hospital & Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida. She worked closely with a team of psychologists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, and nurses. Her role involved directing the nutrition therapy and rehabilitation of children, adolescents, and adults suffering from disordered eating, Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder.

Her role involved restoring physical health AND mental and emotional health via nutritional rehabilitation and counseling.

Lynn resides in Ponte Vedra, Florida, enjoying life with her husband, their 5 children (3 girls and 2 boys), and their 2 dogs Oakie and Blue. Her non-professional interests include spending time with her family and friends - at the beach (and collecting shark's teeth), the pool, on a lake, or at any of her kids' various activities (cheer and football at the moment).
