Changing Your Relationship With Food

“When the joy goes out of eating, nutrition suffers.” -Ellyn Satter

Nutrition Services

As disordered eating patterns develop as a maladaptive coping strategy, we find best results are achieved when clients engage with both a therapist and a Registered Dietitian.

Meal Support Services

The support therapist will also work in conjunction with the client’s dietitian to ensure meal plan compliance and discontinue problematic food behaviors and rituals. 

Our Team’s Dietitian

Rachel has a passion for helping clients optimize their relationship with food and their bodies. Her nutrition counseling style utilizes an empathetic, relational and non-diet approach to empower individuals to make lasting behavior change. She strives to simplify nutrition and provide her clients with the tools necessary to achieve optimal health and higher self-confidence without an emphasis on weight loss.

Nutrition Services

Oftentimes, one’s relationship with food becomes damaged through various factors, including diet culture, promotion of thin ideals within families, and traumatic experiences. As disordered eating patterns develop as a maladaptive coping strategy, we find best results are achieved when clients engage with both a therapist and a Registered Dietitian. Our dietetic services include individualized nutrition education and counseling by a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist to improve overall health and relationship with food. Achieving optimal nutrition is more than what you eat, it’s also influenced by your thoughts and attitudes about food and your body. There is no one size fits all approach. We partner with you to achieve wellness goals that are specific for you and your body.

We offer nutrition counseling for the following concerns:

  • Eating disorders
  • Unintentional weight loss or gain
  • Body image concerns
  • Excessive or inadequate food intake
  • General wellness

Meal Support Services

Meal support sessions are offered to provide experiential help to clients with their nutritional goals. Processing opportunities are offered before, during, and after the meal, while building positive associations with food to be carried into meals throughout the week. The support therapist will also work in conjunction with the client’s dietitian to ensure meal plan compliance and discontinue problematic food behaviors and rituals.

Meal support is offered to gain confidence with:

  • Intake, portioning, and meal plan compliance
  • Discontinuing compulsive eating disorder behaviors after a meal has been completed
  • Challenging food rules and rituals
  • Safe exposure to work on various “challenge meals”

Community is a Key Component When Improving One’s Relationship with Food

“Group has been such an important part of my recovery. The women you meet in this group are special, and having people to walk alongside you in recovery is an immeasurable gift. Simply put, group makes me feel less alone. Eating Disorders isolate you, but community elevates you. It’s so relieving to hear people share and think ‘Thank God, I’m not the only one.” –AL (Client)
