I believe that FULL recovery and freedom from an eating disorder are possible. Eating disorders treatment involves a TEAM approach including:
The role of the nutrition therapist is to assist with the normalization of the client's eating behaviors and weight. Using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Nutrition Education/Therapy, I work with the client to challenge the eating disorder thoughts/behaviors and replace those with solid nutrition information and appropriate coping behaviors. I help the client work on problem solving strategies, self-monitoring and nutrition goal setting. I believe in an individualized approach and develop a plan that best suits each client's needs.
