Nutrition & Body Image Eating Disorder Recovery 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 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 Nutrition & Body Image Eating Disorder Recovery Counseling May be for You…
You’re in recovery from an eating disorder and need professional support from a registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counselor to help nurture a healthy relationship with food and your body,
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’re already working with an eating disorder therapist and/or registered dietitian, but you need extra nutrition and body image support to help you heal, recover, and move on in your life.
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.
I can help 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 Counseling and Coaching is for you (whether in person or virtually) at this time in your life and if we’re a good match to work together.
How Eating Disorder Recovery Counseling Works
In Recovery Counseling, I provide nutrition and body image support to individuals who are in recovery from their eating disorder either in person at my office in Mill Valley, California, or virtually, over video, if appropriate.
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.
Here are some of the tools we’ll likely explore in our work together:
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 your dietitian, and 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.
What you get with recovery counseling:
An initial 75-minute deep dive intake & goal planning session,
50-minute follow-up sessions every other week or weekly (individual sessions are available),
Unlimited email support,
Homework (we agree upon together) + wrap-up notes after every session,
Resources: handouts, worksheets & more, and
Clarity. Plus, immense support.

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.
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 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.
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.”
Interested in Working Together?
Simply apply to learn more about Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Counseling. 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 Counseling.
Who is nutrition and body image eating disorder recovery counseling for?
How do you work with clients?
What’s the difference between Food & Body Image Counseling and Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Counseling?
While many concepts, tools, and learnings will overlap in each of these 1:1 coaching and counseling experiences that I offer, it can be beneficial to understand which 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 Counseling, 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 Counseling here.
In Nutrition & Body Image Recovery Counseling, 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; are in recovery from an eating disorder; and/or may be working with a therapist and/or registered dietitian, but need extra nutrition and body image tools to help them heal, recover, and move on with their life.
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. 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.
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.
