Alexandra Mark, MS, RDN
I am a registered dietitian/nutritionist with experience in multiple therapeutic techniques. My counseling style emphasizes an individualized and evidence-based whole person approach to optimal health, with a strong focus on prevention. I work with adolescents and adults with multiple nutrition-related issues, including eating disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other endocrine diseases, as well as autoimmune diseases.
I develop open and effective therapeutic relationships with my clients to address the underlying causes of disease. My goal is to help clients “listen” to their bodies, understand the power of their minds, and develop a realistic and individualized nutrition plan.
While working at Eating Disorder treatment centers, I collaborated with a multi-disciplinary team including psychiatrists, physicians, psychologists and therapists. As a team, we used various therapeutic modalities, including motivational interviewing and mindfulness practices.
In addition to my private practice and my eating disorder work, I also consult with long-term care facilities throughout LA county as a contract dietitian. Other consultant services include corporate wellness, menu development and analysis, nutrition education, and speaking events.
Nutrition Specialties include Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy, Diabetes, GI disorders, Mindful Eating, Eating Disorders.
