ashley filsinger

my story...

I have over a decade of dedicated experience of working closely with families and their adolescents as we work together as a team towards a future without the eating disorder.

As a mom to three daughters, I recognize the struggle because I have also lived it - recalling my own food and body image questions and concerns as a teenager, and now as a parent to a teenager trying to navigate her own social circles deeply entrenched in diet culture, and as a mom to two little ones. Trying to juggle work and family life is a lot to manage and when you add an eating disorder to the mix, it can feel like you might be losing a piece of you trying to work through it all. I get it!

FOUNDER & CERTIFIED EATING DISORDERS REGISTERED DIETITIAN

Meet Ryann Hilton

hello!

The path to healing can be bumpy and confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. 

My hope for you at NourishRX is that you will reconnect to your body and trust in your healing journey, so you can stop putting your life on hold and instead, pursue the things you love to do alongside the people you love to be with.

My hope for you...

After meeting with adolescents, adults, and families over the years and learning about their experiences, I learned that the process of working from food fears to food freedom can be confusing and that this confusion can be a barrier to true healing. I became passionate about creating a warm and guiding space where you feel seen, heard, understood and supported.

My Story

When Ryann isn’t working with clients or making an impact within her community, she’s likely spending time with her husband and 3 daughters, taking day trips to Maine and enjoying tacos with all the fixings.
