Corinne Dobbas, MS, RD
Hi, I’m Corinne. I’m a registered dietitian, nutrition therapist, and certified intuitive eating counselor with over a decade of experience in Marin County, California. I specialize in eating disorder recovery, disordered eating, and body image concerns – and helping clients break free from the mental, emotional, and physical toll of chronic dieting. Ultimately, I help clients nurture a caring and compassionate relationship with food and their bodies.
I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults. I offer individual nutrition and body image counseling sessions for those healing from chronic dieting, body image concerns, and disordered eating and 1:1 eating disorder nutrition therapy for those in recovery from an eating disorder. In eating disorder care, I closely collaborate with other members of a client’s treatment team, like their medical doctor, therapist and/or psychiatrist. With adolescents, I also closely work with parents and caregivers so they can support their loved one in becoming nourished and well. Please note that nutrition therapy doesn’t mean that I’m a mental health therapist – but it does mean that I’m a registered dietitian who stays within her scope of practice of food, nutrition, movement, and body image. And that in my work, I utilize various counseling skills, modalities, and approaches to better help my clients form a lasting healthy relationship with food, movement, and their body.
I use evidenced-based treatment practices in my work and also take into account who the client is in the room and what their experiences have been. My work is evidence based and relational. I believe we need science and that every client, every person, and every family has their own unique needs.
I see clients at my office in Mill Valley, California and online via a secure, HIPPA-Compliant video platform for those in California and select U.S. states. In my client sessions, I strive to create a safe, judgement free space where you can come, process, and learn how to kindly be with (and in) your body. And where you can learn how to cultivate an enjoyable, healthy, and nourishing relationship with food. My style is a mixture of counseling, coaching, and educating, so clients can gain insight, tools, and experiences in what a healthy relationship with food and their body looks and feels like and so caregivers (if an adolescent) can support their loved one’s healing journey.
I’m kind, curious, authentic, and at times, lovingly direct – all with the intention to move you towards a full recovery and life. You can make peace with food, build a better relationship with your body, and connect with who you are as a whole human. I look forward to supporting you.
1:1 Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy
Eating disorder recovery takes a village, but not just any village. A village of people who you trust and in my opinion, who you genuinely like. I’d be honored to be one of those people, as you make peace with food and your body, and as you heal. In eating disorder nutrition therapy, I work with individuals who are in recovery from an eating disorder, their caregivers (if an adolescent), and other members of their treatment team. Together we embark upon the journey to full recovery and a nourished healthy relationship with food, mind, and body.
1:1 Nutrition & Body Image Counseling
Personal counseling is the most intimate and individualized way to begin making peace with food and your body. If you’re ready to nurture a healthy relationship with food and build a caring relationship with your body, I can help – no dieting, willpower, measuring, counting, or food rules required.
Home-Based Eating Disorder Recovery Services
In recovery, it’s usually not enough to just talk about food. You need to learn how to create more positive experiences with food. In recovery, it’s so normal to need support with eating and preparing food in your own home. Not to mention grocery shopping, dining out, and putting together a simple meal. And if you’re in the process of FBT, it’s very normal for the family to need support making it through a meal with a little more ease and calmness. This is where I can help with in-home eating disorder recovery services.

You are truly gifted at what you do, and I want you to know that you have touched my life and made it better.”
We will certainly keep you in mind and refer anyone we know to you. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do as well. It has been a scary time for us and your helpful advice and coaching and general presence in our daughter’s life is one of the things that gave us comfort. Thanks again.”
As someone who has been there done that with diets, I knew restrictive diets made me rebel and binge. I cannot even begin to list all the changes I’ve noticed since working with Corinne. I have never felt so strong and secure in my own body, and I give her so much credit for that change. I absolutely would recommend her. I am 100% certain that I would have never achieved my breakthroughs without Corinne’s guidance. Corinne’s genuine compassion paired with her wealth of knowledge and experience is just what I needed after everything else had failed me far too many times. She connected the dots between nutrition, emotion, and confidence to achieve my success.”
The only hesitation I had in working with Corinne was whether or not I was ready to take on such extensive reflection. I think that the question of “Am I ready to change?” was my only roadblock. Since working with Corinne, I’ve stopped a yearlong binging cycle in its tracks and while I’ve had “slips” along the way, my bouncing back has been much faster than days past. The most noticeable change has been that I can feel beautiful at any weight. That idea doesn’t resonate every hour of every day, but it certainly has come more frequently since we started working together. Corinne helped me see that I was worth it, that I didn’t have to do anything perfectly, and that changing was a gradual thing that doesn’t really ever end. Thank you for showing up for me, Corinne. This has been an incredible foundation-building journey and your patience and advocacy for me have been incredibly humbling.”
Corinne is truly amazing at what she does. I used to have an eating disorder but she helped me to learn how to eat intuitively, have a better self esteem, and have better self love for myself and my body. You won’t be disappointed if you work with her. She is genuinely sweet and cares about how you’re doing. I would recommend her to anyone recovering from an eating disorder, wanting to have a healthier relationship with food without dieting, and who needs some help loving themselves and their body. Can’t give her enough praise.
As I was knee-deep in flour doing my Christmas baking this weekend (one of my favorite holiday traditions), I realized that this is the first year in many years that I don’t have a weight or food-focused New Year’s resolution looming on the horizon. I’m not eating ALL-THE-COOKIES knowing that come January 1st I’ll be cutting myself off from all sugar. It is strange and foreign to me not to be having those anxious thoughts. I’m not stressed about holiday gatherings or how much weight I might gain. I’m not worried about picking my next diet and writing out my mile-long grocery list of ‘healthy’ foods. I have so much free brain space right now! I’m finding myself enjoying the holiday traditions and appreciating my family. I even got a little crafty last night. (You’ll have to peek at the cute DIY Mini Letter Board Ornament I made for my Christmas tree on Instagram.) I’m loving this new mindset. Thank you so much for showing me there is another way, Corinne!”
