We provide one-on-one nutrition counseling services to ensure personalized treatment and guidance for each individual client

Sports Nutrition

Sports Nutrition

With the help of a board-certified specialist in sports dietetics (CSSD), athletes will gain the knowledge of how diet impacts performance and training adaptations. Not only is every athlete different, but the skills needed and the demands required of one’s body vary by sport and position played. The energy systems used during competition will depend on the task or tasks being performed. We tailor nutrition recommendations to the energy system being used, as each requires different substrates before, during and after workouts. Similarly, nutrition periodization is used to match and keep up with the changes in training cycles. Our sports nutritionists work within your individualized needs, training schedules and performance goals while also taking into account your lifestyle and preferences. If you are competing at the collegiate, professional or olympic level, or consider yourself a weekend warrior, having a sound nutrition plan in place will give you and your team the competitive edge it needs to come out on top.

Eating Disorder

Eating Disorder Therapy

Whether you have a clinical eating disorder or are battling with an unhealthy relationship with food and body, we are here to help. Our dietitians are board-certified eating disorder specialists with extensive clinical training and experience with the treatment of eating disorder patients. There is no such thing as “looking like” or “not looking like” you have an eating disorder. The suffering one endures cannot be determined or quantified by the size or shape of their body. Weight stigma is real and dieting is dangerous. Eating disorders do not discriminate and are more prevalent than reported in marginalized populations, who are historically overlooked by healthcare providers. The complexity of intersectionality, implicit bias, trauma and microaggressions is undeniable. Even more so when we examine the inequities that exist in provider/patient treatment and access to healthcare. Finding your voice can be scary, especially if that means going against what society tells us is “healthy.” Through ongoing nutrition counseling and working collaboratively with a treatment team, we are here to support you on your journey to healing and making peace with food. All bodies deserve to be respected, food is neither good nor bad and health does come at every size.

Through body image work, patients will restructure negative thoughts and feelings in order to pave the way towards body acceptance.
