You can start individual Nutrition Counseling/Coaching Sessions with me either in-person or on-line through a secure platform for:
EATING DISORDERS (Anorexia-Nervosa, Bulimia-Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, EDNOS)
Are you suffering from a long-standing eating disorder? Perhaps you've been in higher levels of treatment and are now in the path of recovery looking for an outpatient dietitian to continue your work with?
Your outpatient eating disorder nutrition counseling will involve:
- Assessment of your current nutrition adequacy and continued monitoring/evaluation to meet nutrition goals unique for your body
- Reframing of irrational nutrition/food/body/weight beliefs to overcome fear and/or guilt in eating
- Building skills to minimize ED behaviors (restriction, binging, purging, excessive exercising, etc.)
- Coordination of care with your treatment team (such as eating disorder treatment centers, therapists, primary care doctor, etc.) or helping you form a treatment team to support your goals
- Consultation for the right level of care and treatment program needed at your current stage

DISORDERED EATING / EMOTIONAL EATING / OVEREATING
Do you have a long history of going on and off diets? Do you think you spend way too much time worrying about food or how your body looks? Do you just not trust yourself around food anymore?
Perhaps you've experienced cycles of love-hate relationships with food or with your body image, sometimes binge-eat to the point where you feel sick, often are so fixated on food that it seems to interfere with your normal everyday life?
Wouldn't it be great to break free from the worries and make peace with yourself and food once and for all?
Learn how to:
- Bring back the joy of eating without obsessing over your body and weight
- Break the cycles of emotional/stress/binge eating
- Prevent mindless eating and eat in a healthy, happy way in just the right amount and at the right times
- Overcome the guilt, shame, disappointment you experience over and over again with food and eating
- Stop the "negative chatter voices" that keep telling you that you can/can't, should/shouldn't eat certain foods
- Finally have food become "just food," so that you can stop worrying about food so much and live your life to the fullest.
- Become to appreciate and love your body no matter what your size is now
NON-DIET APPROACHES TO WEIGHT AND HEALTH
There is evidence that 95% of restriction diets fail and the weight comes back within 5 years.(check-out more resources here.) A wealth of scientific evidence explains to us why and how diets result in weight-cycling (aka "yo-yo effect") that can actually increase risk for further weight gain and even chronic diseases, but diet programs won't tell you that because the American diet industry is a massive 61 billion dollar industry that thrives on failed diets and returning customers.
Focusing on the "number" is not the answer. Fighting against your body is not the answer.
