Food and Body Image Counseling
Hello and welcome!
If you’re here reading this, I want you to know how incredibly brave that is. Finding and getting support, as you make peace with food and your body can feel scary and often, overwhelming at first. So, I invite you to read the below and see if what’s shared speaks with you. If it does, I hope you reach out with any questions or set up a discovery call (the form to do so is below).
To give you some insight, here are some signs that food and body image counseling may be for you:
You struggle with food and negative body image.
You’d like to stop dieting and find a flexible, nurturing approach with food and health, but you don’t know what that looks like.
You crave being able to live your life feeling free and peaceful – NOT constantly thinking about calories, food rules, or the size of your body?
If any of the above ring true for you, I can help.
Hi. I’m Corinne. I’m a Non-Diet, Weight Inclusive Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition, and a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.
I help clients make peace with food, heal their body image issues, and reconnect with who they are as a WHOLE person.
I work with clients virtually, over video, or in person at my office in Mill Valley, California. I work with clients who are struggling with food and body image issues. More specifically, I work with individuals who want to break free from chronic dieting because it’s exhausting, emotionally draining, and makes you feel worse than before.
I also work with clients who:
Want a healthier relationship with food and their body,
Are struggling with disordered eating, binge eating, emotional eating, and/or food fears,
Want to practice intuitive eating and nurture a normal, flexible approach with food,
Would like to nurture a peaceful, kind, respectful relationship and partnership with their body,
Want to approach nutrition and health through a non-diet, weight-inclusive approach that takes into account mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being (i.e., whole-person health), rather than just the number on the scale, and finally…
And perhaps more importantly, I work with clients who may have some doubts and anxiety, but for the most part, are ready to make peace with food and their bodies.
My work centers around intuitive eating, body image work, radical self-care and compassion, the Health at Every Size® (HAES) approach, and the belief that everything you need to heal your food and body image issues is already right there inside of you – not lurking in another diet, detox, wellness guru, or “lifestyle” program.
In my work, a healthy relationship with food and your body is NOT about achieving a certain number on the scale. It’s about learning how to listen, connect, and care for your body – and yourself – on a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level.
My job is to help you rediscover your body’s own innate wisdom, so you can start making peace with food, feeling better in your body, and connecting with yourself, as a whole person. Because… YES, this is possible for YOU.
What You Get with Food & Body Image Counseling
A 75-Minute Deep Dive Intake & Goal Planning Session
Here, we’ll meet virtually (via video) or in person at my office in Mill Valley, California and review your Nutrition, Health & Body Image Questionnaire, take a deep dive into your relationship with food and your body, address immediate concerns and lingering questions, and create clarity in your big-picture goals you’d like to achieve in our work together.
50-Minute Follow-Up Sessions Every Other Week or Weekly
After your initial Deep Dive Session, we’ll meet every other week or weekly, depending on which monthly package option you choose. On our discovery call, I can help decide which option may be best suited for you. Individual sessions are also available.
Unlimited Email Support
Throughout our work together, you’ll have support and guidance, as you make peace with food and your body. You’ll have unlimited email access to me in-between our sessions, and I will encourage you to use it. Because you will need this support as you grow and heal, and you want someone in your corner, rooting you on. Support is so helpful and healing in this big, bold, brave, and often scary work.
Homework + Wrap-Up Notes
After each coaching session, you’ll receive customized homework (from readings to worksheets) and wrap-up notes, where you’ll have written notes on what we talked about, your takeaways, what you want to work on, and added insights, tips, and tools to help you align your actions with the healing work you’re doing. You’ll want to keep these notes. Clients keep their coaching notes for months (and sometimes even years) to come.
Resources: Handouts, Worksheets & More
You’ll receive helpful, clarity-inducing handouts and worksheets – sometimes even worksheets or journaling prompts that are specifically designed for you – to nurture a deeper connection to yourself and this work. But, more importantly, so you can gracefully and gently stumble upon your own “ah-ha” moments.
Clarity & Support
Healing your food and body image issues is deep, bold, brave and often scary work. You’re forced to look at and reckon with issues that you sometimes haven’t looked at for years and typically, there’s some grief and fear in the mix because you’re saying goodbye to your disordered eating voice, diet mentality, and the idealized version of how you think you “should look” or be. I’ll be here to walk right along with you on this journey and help guide you to a place of food freedom, body image healing, and a wholehearted sense of self, as long as you’re willing, ready, and open to do the work.
Pricing + How Food & Body Image Counseling Works
In Food & Body Image Counseling, I provide nutrition and body image support to individuals who want to make peace with food and their body either in person at my office in Mill Valley, California, or virtually, over video. We’ll work together in one of three different ways. 1.) With follow-up sessions every other week; 2.) With follow-up sessions weekly; 3.) Through individual sessions.

Single 50-minute follow-up session: $160 US dollars
Monthly Package Options:
Biweekly 50-minute sessions

PLEASE NOTE >> The options of working together are flexible and designed to work with you as you heal. For example, in the beginning of working together you may choose weekly sessions to support you in your healing journey (and this is often recommended). Overtime, follow-up sessions every other week may be more appropriate and eventually, single sessions, as needed. The amount of support you need is something we’ll openly discuss.
Interested in Getting Started?
Once you apply to learn more about 1:1 Food & Body Image Counseling, I’ll reach out to set up your free, 20-minute discovery call, and I’ll answer any questions you have about pricing and working together. On our call, I’ll be happy to answer anything on your mind related to working together and I’ll, of course, explain how I work. We’ll also discuss where you currently are in your relationship with food and your body, and your specific goals, related to food, nutrition, intuitive eating, health, and body image. From there, we can get a feel if we’re a good match for one another, and you can decide if you’d like to move forward with 1:1 Food & Body Image Counseling.
What Clients Have Shared
I just wanted to thank you for your help over the last few months. You’ve been amazing and have given me such great insight. You have been so kind, calm and knowledgeable throughout our sessions together. I really appreciate everything you have helped me with. Recently, I’ve been feeling so relaxed around food. Food doesn’t feel like such a big issue anymore. I feel like I’ve moved on from food being something I battle with to nourishing myself with foods I enjoy. I’m getting on with life and I’m not feeling bothered about food. I also feel like I’m making strides with my body image. Thanks again for your help and I’ll speak to you soon.”
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. It was a game changer for sure. I have never felt so strong and secure in my own body, and I give her so much credit for that change. 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.
I particularly liked the fact that Corinne shared her knowledge based on personal experience. It’s important to me when working on self-improvement that whoever is coaching me knows what they’re talking about. And I’m not referring to the book knowledge. While I do think academia behind what we work on is key, I tend to give more credibility to the person who “works her own program” so to speak. 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.”
After decades of dieting, I had a lot of foods that I considered off limits. Corinne showed me how to take back the power of certain foods and how to allow them back in my life in a healthy way. None of the diet plans out there address the issues Corinne does, which explains why most work for a time and then fail when you go “back” to your normal ways. I LOVED my time with Corinne! Our conversations were like food/body image therapy for me! It was a psychological/emotional treat every time we spoke.”
Whether I’m feeling good and successful, or feeling like a failure and discouraged, Corinne is right there for me, helping me all along the way to feel good about my progress, while normalizing my set-backs. I’m so grateful I found such a kind, genuine, positive and enthusiastic coach in Corinne to make this major hurdle in my life possible to clear with grace and dignity. Corinne is a gem and really goes the extra mile to assure my success.”
The scale no longer has power over me! I immediately thought of you and was so thankful for all the work we did together. It was amazing! In all my adult life, I’ve never been able to look at the number on the scale and not let it control me. I no longer beat myself up over it. I wanted to let you know what a huge impact you have had on me and my view of myself. Transformational! So thank you, thank you, thank you!”
You are truly gifted at what you do, and I want you to know that you have touched my life and made it better.”
Who is food and body image counseling for?
How do you work with clients?
How long will I have to work with you until I start seeing changes in my relationship with my body and food?
I wish I could answer that. But unfortunately, this isn’t cookie-cutter type work. Each individual is different and needs a different counseling experience. Some clients need just three months of counseling because they’ve already done so much healing work (with a therapist and/or another dietitian), while others need and want to continue working together for 6 months or more. Typically, I work with clients for 6 months to 1 year or more. With that shared, please know that every client experience is different and unique, and we will work together as partners to figure out what is best for you, as we move forward in our work. We can discuss this more on our discovery call, which we’ll set up once you complete the counseling application.
What will I learn if we work together?
Do you take insurance?
I don’t currently take insurance. However, I can provide you a superbill that you can personally submit to your insurance to potentially receive reimbursement for services. Please note: even with a superbill, there is no guarantee for reimbursement, and you’ll still need to pay in advance, or at the time of, our counseling session. I encourage you to check with your insurance provider to see if and what Registered Dietitian services are covered under your plan. While I work with individuals all over the world, virtually, if you’re not based in California (where I’m based), my services will NOT be covered under your insurance plan. If you’d like to check with your insurance what nutrition counseling services are covered for you, here is a document to review and use when checking your insurance benefits with the codes and questions you need.
