I am a NYC-based therapist, specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, disordered eating, trauma and body image dissatisfaction. I approach treatment through a Health at Every Size, fat positive, weight neutral, social justice and trauma-informed lens. I am in the processes of becoming a Body Trust Certified Provider through Be Nourished and have extensive training in evidence-based treatment models (DBT, DBT-PE, CBT-E and ACT).
I believe that everyone has the right to experience joy and well-being in this life. For some, that may be complicated by their relationship with food and their body. I will work with you to break free from food concerns so that you may apply that energy toward other goals in life. I will help you learn how to tune in and listen to your greatest teacher – your own body. We will work together to help you develop a healthy relationship with food and build resilience against diet culture. I believe in progress through self-compassion and kindness. I offer you a safe and welcoming space to explore what that may look like in your life.
Dr. Daisy & Co is a non-diet nutrition and sensory OT (occupational therapy) practice. We help parents help their kids build a peaceful relationship with food and their bodies. We believe in the division of responsibility in feeding (E. Satter) and follow an eclectic intuitive eating and movement model. Kids learn to trust their own internal cues and enjoy food they love with eating competency. Parents learn how to provide structure and nurture without overstepping boundaries in feeding. We offer sensory occupational therapy for kids who need some extra help reading their internal hunger and fullness cues. We also specialize in treating eating disorders using a Family Based protocol.
I am a Spanish speaking RD in the Philadelphia area. Passionate about working with the Latino communities and helping them establish healthy relationships with their food and bodies while maintaining our culture.
I work with body image and food relationship issues using a non-diet approach in order to make more space and energy for desires and what is important in anyone's life.
I offer an intuitive eating approach to health and well being. I offer support and dual sessions with parents and kids.
I work with my clients utilizing a combination of nutritional therapy and coaching, along with accessible yoga (if interested) to address disordered eating and body image concerns. My therapeutic philosophy is rooted in "health at every size" and is weight-inclusive.
I work with folks from a relational, psychodynamic, trauma and social justice informed approach. The healing process is much like what happens in regular therapy, however, we are focused specifically on the relationship to food and the body. I join parents in exploring their own relationship to food and their bodies, in order for their healing to bring about a peaceful and trust-based approach to food with their children. My framework is based in HAES(R), intuitive eating, and Ellyn Satter's eating competence model, all of which are backed by significant research. My heart is to help adults find freedom so the younger generation can, in turn, be free.
I specialize in working with eating disorders, disordered eating and body image issues using a weight-inclusive and compassion-focused approach. I provide evidence-based interventions for adolescents and their families, as well as adults (Family-Based Therapy, Enhanced Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy).
I am a weight neutral HAES aligned therapist. I work with parents using Ellyn Satter's Division of Responsibility, I am trained and certified in Intuitive Eating and am passionate about helping parents raise children who have good relationships with food and with their bodies.
I work with children and families to promote positive relationships with food, physical activity and body image.
My approach is very much individualized based on the person who is struggling with the ED, especially with adults - what works for one person, may not work for another (for example, the use of a meal plan or not). For kids, typically first follow and encourage an FBT/Maudsley Approach for treatment, supporting the child and/or the parents as needed. Over time I help the child reestablish some independence in their food preparation and intake, and transition back to intuitive eating.
Bringing aspects from psychodynamic and relational models, somatic and mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral practices, I believe therapy can be a space to play and explore alongside an open or caring other. Together we can work outside of the binaries of “right” and “wrong” or “good” and “bad” to foster a felt sense of freedom and revolution in your life.
My approach aims to support and empower a peaceful relationship with food and the body. It pulls from years of experience with clients, training in trauma, and motivational interviewing, along with dietetic training. Each client has unique situations and I work with each individually, pulling in family support when appropriate.
I work with individuals and groups who are struggling with disordered eating, body shame, and trauma. The relationship we build together in the room is most important to me, and is the biggest impetus for healing. I work with other HAES professionals to help people on their journey to recovery.
My approach is rooted in being an anti-diet, fat-positive, HAES-aligned clinician. Much of my work focuses on supporting people who are LGBTQ+, as I specialize in working with transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary individuals, as well as athletes, who struggle with eating and their relationship with food and exercise. I like to take a diverse approach in treatment, utilizing several theories in order to meet each client’s needs and goals. I draw on psychodynamic and relational orientations while using mindfulness, somatic, and cognitive techniques for emotional and relational healing. My treatment approach is informed by my experiences as a queer, non-binary person, and former athlete.
When working with parents, I focus on the Division of Responsibility, all food fit, weight-neutral, etc.
I work with individuals, as well as their support systems, who struggle with eating disorders, disordered eating habits, over-exercise, or poor body image. In regards to supporting parents who have kids with eating body issues, I aim to provide psychoeducation, increase healthy familial communication and understanding surrounding helpful vs unhelpful support, decrease emotional enmeshment if present, and highlight parents' own needs and self-care if applicable. I offer individual, couples, and family therapy.
Erica Leon Nutrition has three dietitians. We all BELIEVE OUR BODIES ARE A GIFT AND WE CAN work towards healthy behaviors at every size. We support parents in helping their children recover from all types of eating disorders and honor the family as the first line treatment provider. We also work with children, teens and adults with ALL types of disordered eating. We use an intuitive eating model, but also recognize that most individuals struggling with an eating disorder need prescriptive meal plans. We always work in a team with a physician and therapist (at the minimum).
I am passionate about helping people who are struggling with feeling out of control, confused or stuck around eating to heal their relationship to food so they can be free from diets for good and live a fuller life!
