Get support from a registered dietitian nutritionist who is an eating disorders specialist in the Fort Lauderdale area.
Are you striving to get back to a place where food is not the enemy? Are you tired of saying “no” to social events that involve food? Are you exhausted with the amount of time your thoughts are consumed by food? I am here to tell you that it is possible to work towards an eating experience that is relaxed, free from eating disorder thoughts and joyous. Even if it is hard for you to think of a time where food was not scary or did not provoke anxiety, I can tell you that you were not born with those thoughts and feelings and you have the power to change them.
Eating disorder are about the food and they are not about the food. It is complicated and that is why we work as a collaborative treatment team to work on all of the areas in your life where the eating disorder is affecting you. Together, we will establish goals based around food, whether they be specific foods to work on incorporating and/or eating disorder behaviors to work on. Through evidence-based approaches, we will put our goals into action and move step by step through eating disorder recovery.
What does meal support look like? Ah, good question! It could be a variety of different scenarios. Based on the goals we come up with together as a team, they are either in-office or a meal outing at a restaurant. The most important thing to keep in mind is that as your dietitian, I meet you where you are at. Our goals are created together. We will process how you are feeling before, during and after the eating experience.
