Kathryn Cassellius is a registered dietitian/nutritionist who specializes in the areas of diabetes, prediabetes, high cholesterol and weight management.  Her counseling style is conversational and casual, without judgement, which allows patients to feel safe and supported. Kathryn provides support and accountability for patients who desire to lead a comprehensively healthy life in the areas of diet, exercise, sleep and stress management; she strives to align these factors to create the best life both mentally and physically for her patients.  Kathryn incorporates intuitive eating principles into her counseling to help patients improve their relationship with food and move away from restrictive diets, and instead focus on hunger and fullness cues while understanding that all foods fit into a healthy diet.

Kathryn enjoys helping patients learn how to control cravings and incorporate mindful eating techniques, with a focus on assisting patients in creating a sustainable and manageable lifestyle plan. She believes in highly individualized goals and open communication with each of her patients, knowing there is not a one size fits all approach to making lasting changes.

Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 13, Kathryn brings this experience into her practice to build strong connections using her personal perspective.

Outside of her professional life Kathryn enjoys reading cooking and baking blogs and trying the new recipes she finds. She also enjoys reading fiction books and memoirs. Since moving to North Carolina she has enjoyed finding new hiking areas and running/walking paths, as spending time outside and staying active rejuvenates her!

I have had a very positive experience with my dietician Kathryn. I feel she is accepting of where I am in regards with the relationship I have with food. She offers great resources and advice on intuitive eating and I am very thankful to have found her!

The nutritionist, Kathryn, was very helpful in answering my questions and increasing my awareness of of different food groups. She provided useful printouts, and offered suggestions of ways to help with better control of my diabetes. Her personality was pleasant and friendly, causing me to look forward to each session. Additionally, she was a very good listener, always encouraging me.

I loved meeting with your nutritionist. I especially loved the option to meet with her online. She was so kind and I didn’t feel judged. She listened and she gave suggestions to help me begin with small steps. I am already making healthier choices and I look forward to working with her through this journey.

Kathryn is a great dietician/nutritionist. She’s non-judgmental and very conversational. She sets measurable goals and schedules follow-up appointments, so you can stay on track. She also does a ton of research for you outside of your appointment, which is very helpful and shows that she really cares. The team at Avance Nutrition Services is also helpful in checking your insurance coverage and copay before your appointment.
