EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE: Cassie’s nutrition education began at CSU, Chico when she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Food Science. Cassie furthered her education by receiving a Master of Science in Nutritional Science through TexasTechUniversity in 2011. Cassie specializes in eating disorders and currently contracts with local eating disorder treatment facilities in the Bay Area, as well as sees clients within her private practice.
Cassie strives to help others understand how the mind and body work together in regulating our body’s hunger and fullness cues. She further aims to restore healthy thoughts and perceptions about food and our bodies through a mindful and intuitive eating approach to nutrition. She believes a solid nutrition education foundation can help to dismiss myths and misleading nutrition information that may be consumed and misinterpreted.
Yes, I think it is possible to recover from an eating disorder. Recovery is a flexible process in which the mind and body make peace with food. Recovery is being able to act on hunger cues and respect when our body asks for food. Recovery is being able to enjoy food with others and sit comfortably with the feeling of fullness. Recovery is being able to rationalize irrational thoughts and dismiss them from our mind. Recovery is not perfect and breaking the ideals of perfection when it comes to food/our bodies is part of the process.
