Leah Robilotto - The Food Allergy InstitutePopular
We work to provide support to food-allergic individuals, their families, schools, communities, workplaces, and advocate for safe inclusion while reducing the stress and anxiety that can come with living with a food allergy.
Leah Robilotto, PsyM, is a food allergy expert and the founder of the Food Allergy Institute. She specializes in empowering educators, parents and children to overcome the psychological impact of and implement practical solutions for managing life-threatening chronic illnesses. Leah has trained thousands of clients on how to keep food-allergic individuals safe and included in everyday activities at educational institutions, in restaurants, at work and while traveling.
Leah’s extensive background in food allergies includes years working in patient advocacy at a national nonprofit (Food Allergy Research and Education), rewriting food policy for top schools in Atlanta, and being a founding member of The Training Epinephrine Administrators in Medication Coalition (TEAM) in Washington, DC. Her expertise has been featured in media outlets including WebMD, The Killer Food Allergy Podcast, and Scary Mommy. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and two sons, one of whom was diagnosed with eight life-threatening food allergies when he was just 6 months old.
My ideal client is a parent (usually the mother) of a child who has a long-term chronic illness. I support families through coaching sessions.
**All coaching services and communication email or otherwise, delivered by The Food Allergy Institute/ Leah Robilotto, PsyM as well as information on this website foodallergyinstitute.com are meant to help you identify the areas in your life and in your thinking that may be standing in your way. However, coaching is not professional mental health care or medical care. If you feel psychologically stressed to the point that it is interfering with your ability to function, please have the courage to seek the help you need in the form of a professional counselor. Coaching may augment your therapy, but the work of coaching is meant to be done when major emotional and psychological wounds are already healing or healed.
