Eating Disorder Counseling
Eating disorders are serious conditions associated with persistent food related behaviors that negatively impact one's health: physically, mentally, and emotionally. As medical nutrition therapists, our eating disorder RD's are educated and trained in food as medicine while incorporating therapeutic approaches to help individuals release the rigid rules, rituals, and behaviors they have cultivated related to food and body.
What to Expect
Our dietitians help to guide individuals in finding and strengthening the voice that soothes them to help combat dysfunctional eating thoughts, urges, and behaviors. This may be done through challenges and practices that allow them to dig deeper to understand the root of this behavior and/or triggers.
The aim is to help patients develop their understanding of their eating disorder and take their power back to embrace food and body freedom. This can be done by identifying one’s attitudes towards body weight and body shape, disordered weight control behaviors amongst food control behaviors, external influences such as peers, family, and friends, and ensure the conversation surrounding nutrition education is mindful, engaging, and supportive.
