I believe that a multi-disciplinary team approach works best. I provide clients with science based nutrition information that empowers them to challenge their distortions about food and body. I will help a client develop a meal plan and provide support during meals when appropriate.
Yes, I think it is possible to recover from an eating disorder. Eating disorder recovery is possible with the right treatment team. Recovery involves motivation, hard work, and trusting of treatment team. Recovery is achieved when one is able to eat freely and not have obsessive thoughts about food or body. It is having the ability to be flexible with intake and enjoy a variety of foods without compensatory behaviors.
