Eating Disorder Nutrition Counseling
A key component to eating disorder recovery is weight restoration and nutritional rehabilitation. Research tells us that food is medicine. The brain cannot function properly without full nutrition. An individualized treatment plan is developed based on the needs of each client, in order to normalize eating, interrupt eating disorder behaviors, provide nutrition education, and challenge unhelpful ED-related thoughts.
Intuitive Eating is an evidenced-based approach to eating developed by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. Intuitive Eating focuses on healing the relationship between the body’s internal physical cues of hunger/fullness and a person’s emotions, taste preferences, food beliefs/rules, and experiences. The relationship between the mind and body is examined in depth and explored without judgment.
