I have 23 years of working in the field of eating disorders, so I approach talking with parents about food and feeding with a preventative angle and use HAES-informed and intuitive eating principles.

We start by unpacking the feelings and emotions attached to their child’s relationship with food and body. We then start to explore health, explaining that restricting calories, overexercising, limiting certain foods, labeling foods as good vs. bad can do more harm and actually lead to poor health (mental and physical) longterm. We support our clients in finding joy in movement, practicing gentle nutrition without restrictions and shifting the focus away from the scale and perceived ideas of what their bodies are “supposed” to look like based on toxic diet culture messaging and maybe even mixed messages from their child’s physician.
