Do I need to have an eating disorder to work with you?

Not all clients have eating disorders. Considering food and nutrition through this lens can be helpful for most  people - after all, the alternative is often rigid, fear-based nutrition. Many people can benefit from the exploration of gentle nutrition, practical and flexible meal planning, connection with internal hunger and satiety cues, movement, and specific condition management. If you feel distressed about food or your body, this work may be helpful. If you feel confused or overwhelmed by conflicting nutrition advice, let's connect. 

How many sessions will I need?

This varies from person to person. Throughout our work, we can continue to reassess what feels helpful and works well for you, your goals, your schedule, your budget. We often start with weekly sessions, and meet less frequently over time. Similar to therapy, there isn’t a magic number of sessions required for healing, so we’ll aim to have as many sessions as you find to be helpful. 

What if I want to lose weight?

While I don’t provide weight loss services, I will always hold space for weight concerns you may have. Many clients want to lose weight - I feel strongly that a person can desire weight loss while getting curious about a weight inclusive, anti-diet approach. Talking about weight is welcome and encouraged within session - it is my belief that we must acknowledge weight concerns with compassion, understanding and curiosity. It's valuable to understand the parts of you that want to lose weight. And, restricting food, micromanaging intake and following food rules can often interfere with healing one’s relationship with food. For a number of reasons, focusing on achieving weight loss won’t be emphasized in our sessions - instead we can explore flexible behaviors associated with wellbeing. If you’re interested in learning more about weight science and how I came to this weight-inclusive perspective as a dietitian, please don’t hesitate to ask. You can also read more, here

What should I know about working together?

Please know that I welcome honest feedback. I will do my best to check in, and I invite open communication about our work. If you would like to discuss something we haven't touched on, please let me know. If you prefer more or less structure, we can make adjustments. If I have missed the mark, feel free to tell me. If you're feeling curious or unclear about the direction of our work, let's discuss.
