Diane Summers, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD
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.

Elizabeth Davenport, MPH, RD, LD
Elizabeth Gullaher, RD, MHSc
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.
