Nutrition & Body Image Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching
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 heal your food and body image issues and recover can feel incredibly trying and tricky. So, I invite you to read all of the below and see if what’s shared speaks with you. If it does, I hope you set up a discovery call (the form to do so is below) or contact me with any questions.
Signs Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching May be for You…
You’re in recovery from an eating disorder (or disordered eating) and need professional support to help nurture a healthy relationship with food and your body, or
Maybe it’s been some time (perhaps even years) since you’ve engaged in eating disorder behaviors, using food and/or exercise in unhealthy ways. And, right now, for whatever reason something is going on in your life that’s making those behaviors look really appealing again, and you need support to not engage and instead, healthfully cope. Or,
Maybe you need extra support to stay the path as you heal from (usually years of) chronic dieting, disordered eating, and/or body image issues. Or,
Maybe you’re already working with an eating disorder therapist and Registered Dietitian, but you’re looking for extra support, tools, and coaching, as you move throughout your recovery journey.
If any of the above ring true for you, you’re in the right place. And personally, I think it’s important to note that…
Recovery takes a village, but not just any village. A village of people who you trust and in my opinion, who you genuinely like.
And, I’d be honored to be one of those people, in your eating disorder recovery journey.
If we haven’t formally met – 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 specialize in helping clients break free from the mental, emotional, and physical toll of chronic dieting, various levels of disordered eating, and body image issues – as well as nutrition and body image healing work in eating disorder recovery.
And, I can support you in your recovery process, as you continue to make peace with food and your body.
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.
In my practice, I treat each and every individual, individually. Meaning, I see you – the “whole person” YOU – not your diagnosis or what you’ve perhaps been labeled with, but you, as an individual. I take a human first approach in all of my work and quite frankly, everything I do. What this also means is that on our discovery call, together, we’ll get a really good honest feel to see if Recovery Coaching is for you at this time in your life and if we’re a good match to work together.
How Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching Works
In Recovery Coaching, I provide support to individuals – virtually, over video – who are in recovery from disordered eating or their eating disorder. Or, who need extra support to stay the path as they heal from (usually years of) chronic dieting and body image issues.
In sessions, I use my experience and growing knowledge about you and your needs to weave together a variety of tools for your movement forward in your healing journey, including, but not limited to:
- Nutrition education,
- Nutrition science,
- Intuitive eating practices,
- Body image healing practices,
- The Health at Every Size® (HAES) approach,
- Self-care practices, and
- Various coaching techniques to help you make peace with food and your body.
As the nutrition (and body image) pillar in your recovery, I’ll reach out to other members of your recovery team (if present), such as your therapist or mental health professional to help provide comprehensive, seamless care. Clients may also hire me in addition to their current therapist and dietitian team, as another source of support, insight, and tools to aid in your continual recovery.
Eating Disorder Recovery Coaching Fees
In Recovery Coaching, we work together in one of three different options – with follow-up sessions every other week or weekly, on a month-to-month basis, or through individual sessions.
OPTION A: Your Initial 75-Minute Deep Dive Session + 50-Minute Follow-Ups EVERY OTHER WEEK
2 sessions per month
$280 US dollars per month
OPTION B: Your Initial 75-Minute Deep Dive Session + WEEKLY 50-Minute Follow-Ups
4 sessions per month
$500 US dollars per month
OPTION C: Individual Sessions
The initial 75-Minute Deep Dive Intake & Goal Planning Session (required for all first appointments): $195 US dollars
50-minute follow-up session: $160 US dollars
Please note >> The options of working together are flexible and designed to work with you as you heal. For example, the first few months of working together you may choose Option B (which includes your initial 75-minute Deep Dive Session and continues with weekly follow-up sessions) to support you in your healing journey. Overtime, you then may choose to switch to Option A (follow-up sessions every other week) and eventually, single sessions, as needed. Since we’ll work together on a month-to-month basis, the amount of support you need at a given time is something we’ll openly discuss. On our discovery call, I can help create some clarity around which option of working together may be best for you to start – based on your personality, current relationship with food and your body, and where you’d like to go in this work – which we’ll get into (and more) on our call.
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 you help and I’ll speak to you soon.”
Corinne, you’d be happy for me. I went to a yoga class with a friend today and the whole time I wasn’t worrying about looking different or feeling like people were looking down on my body. Also my friend is tiny and I didn’t catch myself once being insecure about my size or comparing myself to her. Big steps in the right direction. I’ll never be able to thank you for what you’ve done for me. Take care, hugs!”
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.”
Wondering what’s the difference between Food & Body Image Coaching and Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Coaching?
While many concepts, tools, and learnings will overlap in each of these 1:1 coaching experiences that I offer, it can be beneficial to understand which coaching experience is best for you and our work together, so we have a good idea of where our work needs to begin. On our discovery call, if this is a question for you, I can help sort out which option may be the best for you, but in short…
In Food & Body Image Coaching, clients generally:
- Have hunger cues consistently and frequently, although they may not always honor them in a timely manner,
- Are ready to embark upon their intuitive eating journey,
- May or may not be working with a therapist or mental health professional, and
- Have not been formally diagnosed with an eating disorder. Or, if they were diagnosed, it was a fair amount of time back and they’re ready (emotionally, physically, and mentally) to go full-steam ahead into intuitive eating, body image healing, and self-compassion work.
You can find more information about Food & Body Image Coaching here.
In Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Coaching, clients generally:
- Don’t consistently and frequently have hunger cues and need support in getting those cues (and other body attunement cues, like fullness) back,
- Are typically not (yet) ready to embark upon their intuitive eating journey,
- Are working with a therapist or mental health professional, and
- Are in recovery from an eating disorder or disordered eating, or need extra support to stay on the path as they heal from (usually years of) chronic dieting and body image issues.
Please note: I practice from a weight-inclusive approach and work with all kinds of clients in ALL kinds of body shapes and sizes.
Interested in Working Together?
Simply apply to learn more about Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Coaching. Once I receive your application, I’ll reach out to set up a free 20-minute discovery call. On our call, we’ll discuss where you currently are in your relationship with food and 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 Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Coaching.
Who is nutrition and body image eating disorder recovery coaching for?
How do you work with clients?
How long will we have to work together in my recovery journey?
Every client experience is different and unique because each client is different and unique. While I can’t give you an exact answer, I can tell you that I work with most clients for 6-12 months or more, so they can really sink into the work and heal. However, this again, depends on a variety of factors from level of support needed to finances to the desire to do the work at this time in your life. As we move throughout our work, this is something we’ll openly discuss. This is also something we can explore on our discovery call, which we’ll set up once you complete the coaching application, if you desire to do so.
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 most likely 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.
