Welcome to Fork In The Road Nutrition Counseling, LLC. Take a look around to better understand who we are and how we approach food & nutrition counseling (spoiler alert: it is not just silly pictures of a fork stuck in the road, although we do like to keep things lighthearted). This is a diet-free, non-judgmental, food-positive space to help you in your journey toward freedom with food. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or would like to know how it all works.
Hello! My name is Amanda Holben and I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist who owns Fork In The Road Nutrition Counseling, LLC. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition & Food Science. After that, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Master of Science in Human Nutrition, where I also completed my Dietetic Internship back in 2002.
I began my professional career at Remuda Ranch Programs for Eating Disorders (2002 – 2008) where I served as both a floor dietitian as well as the Nutrition Services Clinical Manager. I then joined the Eating Disorder Assessment and Support Team at The University of Texas at Austin (2008-2011). For the next five years (2011-2016), I worked in private practice at The Healthy Weigh in Houston, TX where I was the lead dietitian for the program. I transitioned to my own full-time private practice at Fork In The Road Nutrition Counseling, LLC in 2016. In addition to private practice, I also provide contract services for wellness & rehabilitation programs in the greater Houston area.
As part of my commitment to excellent care, I actively collaborate care with treatment providers and am often requested to provide supervision on difficult cases. I trained with Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch (authors of Intuitive Eating) to earn my credential as a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I am an active member of Houston Eating Disorders Specialists (HEDS) and have served on the Executive Committee as the Education Committee Chairperson and Conference Chair. As a Christian, I cherish the opportunity to integrate faith into the nutrition recovery process, but only at clients’ request. I live in Manvel, TX with my husband, daughter, and our rescue mutt. I consider it an honor and a privilege to collaborate with clients as they pursue their nutritional health goals.
