Nutrition Therapy

When an individual develops an eating disorder, his or her relationship with food becomes complex. The recovery process involves untangling the negative meanings and myths. Nutrition therapy involves challenging and educating individuals about the myths and rules the eating disorder has established.

The relationship between an individual and his or her nutrition therapist requires trust, as emotional issues with food are explored.

Our Registered Dietitians will focus on providing the specialized treatment you need with a safe, compassionate approach.
