Nutritional Counseling & Rehabilitation
The Eating Disorders Treatment Center provides nutrition therapy to clients seeking individual nutritional counseling, and to all clients participating in our Intensive Outpatient program as a part of the program treatment process. The staff dietitian oversees our client’s nutritional status and eating behaviors, provides weight monitoring when appropriate, and collaborates with the treatment team to encourage healthy thinking and behaviors about food.
We recommend that most new clients with Eating Disorder issues meet individually with the staff dietitian within two weeks starting their treatment program with EDTC. For Intensive Outpatient Program participants, an initial 30 minute session to set up a meal plan and provide a nutrition assessment is included in the IOP package. Clients may choose to attend additional fifty-minute individual sessions with the nutrition therapist as needed. These sessions are not included in the Intensive Outpatient Program and will be billed to your insurance company if possible, or are available for a sliding scale fee.
Individual nutrition and dietary counseling sessions will address a client’s nutrition questions, provide tailored nutrition education and recommendations, explore client’s relationship to food and body image, and set appropriate goals in working toward intuitive, healthy eating.
