Kastania Rasmussen

(she/her)

holistic nutritionist

Kastania Rasmussen, MScN (She/Her) is a somatic nutritionist with a masters degree in holistic clinical nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. Kastania identifies as a queer cis-woman of Danish descent who respectfully honors practicing somatic nutrition as a white settler on colonized land belonging to Indigenous communities and First Nations people. 

Kastania specializes in food relationship, nervous system support, eating disorders and disordered eating and the somatic-emotional aspect of nutrition and nourishment. She receives ongoing continuing education from ERED (the Embodied Recovery for Eating Disorders Institute), has training in IFS (Internal Family Systems), has completed training in Somatic Intuitive Healing (a somatic therapy approach), holds a Chiropractic Assistant Certification for manual body work at Be Well and will complete her training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy in 2026. 

Kastania approaches the therapeutic relationship from an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, gender-affirming and health-at-every-size perspective in order to co-create a space where it is safe to explore and engage with what is calling for attention around food, nutrition, nourishment, and eating. 

It is said that “the body is the voice of the unconscious mind.” Kastania believes that to be skillfully supported in learning your body’s unique language around food is to walk away empowered, self-attuned, more deeply connected to one’s needs, and the doors to transformation open. Her heart and skill in offering somatic nutrition is additionally informed by the lifelong personal exploration of her own healing process with food and eating disorders.

Kastania has been a yoga instructor for 15 years, a lifelong dancer, a personal chef and nutritional consultant, a chocolatier, and a somatic therapist. When she is not in the kitchen with a project, she is singing and playing guitar, cuddling her cat, getting out into the beautiful PNW for hiking and adventures, and spending quality time with loved ones.

Originally from Indiana, they now reside in Portland, Oregon with their two rambunctious cats. Tasha enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, learning, and finding new ways to be creative.

 

Professionally, Tasha is trained as a Clinical Nurse Specialist (a type of advanced practice nurse, similar to a Nurse Practitioner), and has been a nurse for over a decade —mostly working with individuals impacted by chronic or complex health conditions. They started in diabetes care and became a Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist, so much of their work has been related to diabetes and nutrition. They also spent many years as a Nurse Navigator helping clients navigate the healthcare system. Their personal health journey, and realization of the huge gaps in available care, led them to shift their professional practice to serve others on similar journeys as their own.

 

Tasha has been told she’s inquisitive and “a very good detective”. Being curious, digging deep, and thinking outside of the box (all while keeping the whole picture in mind) are really her favorite things in this life. Tasha’s style in working with patients is as a consultant & coach. She believes you are the expert in your own self and aims to empower you, provide hope, and help you to use your own innate wisdom to live your best life!

 

Tasha’s goal is to create a safer space for all to receive appropriate healthcare that is affirming & accommodating of individual needs; a space that encourages exploration and self-determination of what wellness & thriving mean in your individual life. They practice from a trauma informed perspective that is neurodiversity, LGBTQ+, disability, & HAES affirming. Tasha is able to order diagnostic tests and prescribe medications, but also works with clients on nervous system safety, nutrition, hydration, gut health, musculoskeletal health & movement, sleep, mental & emotional health, stress management, creating a life they love, finding joy, & more.

 

Tasha is available for telehealth consultations for Oregon Health Plan members and is accepting new patients ages 16 & up. Because all visits are conducted virtually, Tasha does not serve as a Primary Care Provider (PCP).
