Why do I need this?

Great question! Nutritional Counseling is helpful for those with disordered eating; restriction, binge eating, bulimia, orthorexia, and OSFED, who struggle with incorporating their daily needs due to fear of certain foods, weight gain, body changes, and overall concerns around integration of needed nutrients. Nutritional Counseling helps with basic meal planning, nutrition education, grocery store exposure, and fear food exposure, while all using cognitive and dialectical principles to help manage the challenging emotions. Nutritional Counseling also helps serve those with physical ailments due to nutrient deficiencies, concerns around nutrition, and overall navigation around meal planning and the type of fuel we need.
