Eating Disorder Nutrition Services
Courage to Nourish is a phrase we hold near and dear to our hearts. As most of us know, it’s not easy in our culture to find a peaceful relationship with food. The phrase Courage to Nourish reflects our clients’ abilities to redefine what health and nutrition means to them. We believe our clients can break free from food judgments and rules that are holding them back from living a full life. Reaching out to begin this work may be one of the bravest steps you take. We hope we can cultivate this strength in you and are honored we can be a part of your body liberation and food peace journey.

We align ourselves with the Health at Every Size© or HAES© approach and value diversity and inclusion.
We believe every individual deserves compassionate and adequate care. Not only do we work through a weight inclusive framework, but we also promote anti–racism, gender inclusivity and aim to make our nutrition counseling a safe and non-judgmental space for ALL humans. If health is something you’d like to work toward, we focus on health promoting behaviors instead of changing body shape and size. We do not provide diet or weight loss services. We welcome and encourage conversations about how various identities our clients hold impact their relationship with food, body and movement. Our team is committed to learning, growing and taking action when it comes to advocating for our clients’ wellbeing.
