Welcome. I’m Marlena Tanner, RDN, CEDRD-S.

(Formerly Newtrition Counseling)

As a Certified Eating Disorder Dietitian, it’s my mission to actively guide each of my clients through recovery by providing the support, compassion, and tools needed to achieve a healthy balance of the mind, body, and spirit. I’m dedicated to understanding and empathizing with each individual’s unique perspective and positively influencing their perception of their True Self.



Eating disorders take many forms, all equally deserving of attention.

Through nutrition counseling, you’ll learn how to nourish your physical body, emotional well-being, and spiritual Self. I take a non-diet approach to treating all types of eating disorders, ranging from restrictive disorders to overeating disorders.


For Clients

No eating disorder symptom is too large or small. If you feel like your inner understanding has become clouded by your external image, you’ve come to the right place.

For Practitioners

Dietitians who are caring and skilled at connecting with patients, who have a mastery in the field of disordered eating and body image, and who know their stuff regarding physiology, and hard nutrition science are rare. Marlena Tanner has that incredible blend, alongside a thorough follow through with each patient. Her track record for helping patients through to the next stage of recovery or healing is phenomenal.
