Welcome to our practice
All of our dieticians share the same non-dieting philosophies and are trained to use behavioral nutrition models for effective habit change. While there is much overlap among us, you’ll see that we also have unique specializations.

Daisy Miller, Ph.D., LDN
I’ve been happily helping people with eating issues in Montgomery Cty, MD for 14 years in solo practice. In the winter of 2018, I collaborated with dietitians Amanda, Emily, and Adrienne to start the group practice, Daisy Miller & Associates. In 2003, I earned a doctorate in nutrition with a concentration in family therapy from Penn State. My dissertation resulted in several research papers in peer-reviewed journals on the subject of weight, food choice, and family relationships. This research sparked my interest in adapting psychotherapy models to use in nutrition counseling.
Since then, I have participated in advanced training intensives with The Ellyn Satter Institute, Castlewood Treatment Center, and Internal Family Systems (IFS - level 1 and level 2), to name a few. I enjoy presenting at professional trainings and conferences as well. I had the privilege of participating on the board of the Maryland State Board of Dietetic Practice for 4 years. I am currently the Chair of WSSEDO (the Washington Society for the Study of Eating Disorders).
I value collaborating with others and have strong collegial relationships with mental health professionals and physicians throughout the DC metro area.
I hold much gratitude for my group practice — my clients and colleagues enrich my life every day.
Amanda Boostrom, MS, RD, LDN
Working within a group practice which embodies only non-dieting, non-weight stigmatizing philosophies is a perfect fit. Do you have medical issues? No problem – we can find ways to fuel your body without feeling restricted. I also enjoy helping parents and families solve a range of common eating issues, like picky eating and childhood overeating.
My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from the University of Maryland, College Park. I received extensive clinical training during a 10-month dietetic internship at Virginia Tech. I then pursued a Master’s degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition at Colorado State University, which included scientific research on the relationship between intuitive eating and weight management. I have years of experience helping individuals navigate a variety of health and body image issues. I am passionate about helping others break the dieting cycle, heal their relationship with food, connect with and love their unique body, and learn how to fuel it well.
Emily Braaten, MS, RD, LDN
I enjoy working with individuals who seek nutrition counseling with a variety of health interests and concerns. One of my areas of clinical expertise has been working with men and women struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating. I believe in full recovery and I am dedicated in helping my clients work towards that goal. Eating disorders recovery is a team-based approach - I value the collaboration and support from the dietetic experts within group practice. Together, we are a strong force in helping our clients heal their relationship with food and their bodies.
My academic career in dietetics began at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a joint degree in Nutrition and Spanish. I then earned a Masters in Science in Nutrition & Public Health from Teachers College, Columbia University. I have had extensive experience in nutritional rehabilitation for eating disorders, including group counseling and meal support, and have worked with organizations ranging from corporate wellness to private practice to community nutrition education.
Adrienne Inger RD, LDN
My journey to becoming a registered dietician was inspired by my own family's history of diabetes – I wanted to find a better way to help people lead healthier lives. I have remained deeply committed to helping people improve their health with dietary change – by eating food they love with body awareness and respect to their unique health needs.
My academic track began at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I earned a Bachelors degree of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. I then completed a clinical dietetic internship at a UCLA-affiliated hospital in Los Angeles, California. I have years of experience helping clients with women's health issues (hormonal and endocrine), diabetes prevention & management, chronic kidney disease, nutrition for aging and more. I am passionate about helping those who wish to stop the dieting/overeating cycle and find non-dieting alternatives to bring a peaceful, healthy balance to their lives.
