Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy


Nurture a caring relationship with food & your body

Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy

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 recover from an eating disorder 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. If you have questions, please email me or call me at 415.737.9981

Signs Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy May be for You…

You’re in recovery from an eating disorder and need professional support from a registered dietitian who specializes in eating disorders to help you cultivate a flexible, balanced, peaceful relationship with food.

You’re already working with an eating disorder therapist and medical doctor, but you need a brave space where you can just talk about food, eating, and how you feel in and about your body. And where you can learn skills, tools, and techniques on how to nurture a caring relationship with food, your body, and yourself.

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. 

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 the dietitian in your eating disorder recovery journey.

Nutrition and Body Image Eating Disorder Recovery Counseling in Marin CountyIf we haven’t formally met – Hi, I’m Corinne.

I’m a registered dietitian, nutrition therapist, and 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 concerns – as well as nutrition and body image healing work in eating disorder recovery.

I can help support you in your eating disorder 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 make peace with food, build a caring relationship with your body, and connect with yourself, as a whole person, finding joy in food, movement, and life. Because… YES, this is possible for YOU.

In my practice, I treat each and every individual, individually, and I create a safe, judgement free, therapeutic space where you can come, process, and learn how to kindly be with (and in) your body. And where you can learn how to make peace with food.


How Eating Disorder Nutrition Therapy Works


In eating disorder nutrition therapy and recovery counseling, I provide nutrition therapy and body image support to individuals who are in recovery from their eating disorder in person at my office in Mill Valley, California. I also offer virtual appointments for those in California (if virtual services are appropriate). I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults, and those who are appropriate for an outpatient level of care.

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. As your dietitian, and as the nutrition pillar in your recovery, I’ll reach out to other members of your recovery team, such as your therapist and medical doctor continually throughout our work together to provide comprehensive, seamless care and so you have a collaborative team approach. Working with an eating disorder dietitian, therapist, and medical doctor (as well as other members of your treatment team that may be present, like a psychiatrist) is considered the gold standard and recommended approach in eating disorder treatment and care, and it’s how I work with clients.

Here are some of the tools we’ll likely explore in our work together: 

Nutrition education,

Nutrition science,

Intuitive eating practices,

Self-compassion,

Somatics,

Embodiment practices,

Nutrition therapy,

Body image healing practices,

The Health at Every Size® (HAES) approach,

Self-care practices, and

Various coaching and counseling techniques to help you make peace with food and your body.

What eating disorder nutrition therapy looks like:

An initial 50-minute intake & goal planning session,

(For adolescents, in addition to the initial 50-minute session, there’s an additional 30-minute “parent session”),

After our initial session, I will contact your doctor and therapist (and other members of your treatment team) for collaboration, or help you find a treatment provider, if needed,

50-minute follow-up sessions (typically, weekly),

Unlimited email support + meal and snack support in-between sessions through a photo food + mood journal,

Homework or “experiments” (to work on between session),

Resources: handouts, worksheets & more, 

A collaborative, compassionate team approach with your therapist, medical doctor, and other members of your recovery team throughout our time together,

Clarity. Plus, immense support.

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.”

– Poppy N, Mill Valley, California

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.

– Mary B, Houston, Texas

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.”

– Taylor W, Larkspur, California

FAQs

Who is eating disorder nutrition therapy for?

Eating disorder nutrition therapy is for individuals who are in recovery from their eating disorder: anorexia nervosa, binge eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, or any other feeding or eating disorder. It’s for those who need support (typically, weekly) to stay the path as they heal from restricting, binging, purging, compulsive exercising, food fears, and/or body image concerns. Individuals who have psychological barriers preventing them from establishing a flexible, intuitive approach with food (e.g., food fears or fear of gaining weight) also benefit from eating disorder nutrition therapy. Clients engaging in this service, for the most part, are also working with a mental health professional and medical doctor who I will collaborate with for comprehensive seamless care. In my work, I also bring embodiment and self-compassion practices into the room, so individuals who are interested in body image healing work can begin to reconnect with their body in a kind, caring way.

What age groups do you work with?

I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults.

How do you work with clients?

I see clients in person at my office in Mill Valley, California. I also offer virtual appointments for those in California (if virtual services are appropriate).

How long will we have to work together in my recovery journey?

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. Typically, I work with individuals for 1-plus years in this healing work. 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.


Do you take insurance?

I don’t take insurance. However, with a nutrition referral form that I will provide you (signed by your medical doctor), I can give you a superbill, which 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. If you’d like to check with your insurance about what nutrition counseling services are covered for you, here is a document to review and use when checking your benefits with the codes and questions you need.
