This directory includes non-diet, Health at Every Size (HAES) professionals who work with parents to help them understand body hate, disordered eating and eating disorders.
I have been in the Eating Disorders field since 1997 and am a passionate advocate recovery. I want to come beside clients and help them find peace with food and their bodies in a gentle and supportive way.
As a dietitian, I can help parents navigate the introduction of foods, food acceptance, food allergies and sensitivities, and youth sports nutrition from a HAES perspective. I can also support families in reframing thoughts and beliefs about health, weight, body image, and body acceptance using a non-diet approach.
Nutrition counseling utilizes an empathetic, Intuitive Eating and non-dieting approach to achieve long-term behavioral change. Casey's goal is to provide her clients with the tools necessary to obtain healthy and balanced lifestyle. By enabling her clients to make peace with food they are able to feel more in at peace with their eating habits.
I love working with families and couples to help with eating and body issues. My background is in marriage and family therapy and the intersection of this area and eating/body issues are my passions. I work with families and couples to provide therapy and necessary resources for the entire family system. I generally work from a systems perspective to find the role of the eating and body issues and find other workable ways to meet this same need. I offer support groups for families and individuals as well.
I work with folks who are recovering from disordered eating and/or wanting to reconnect with their bodies. I am centered in self-compassion work, and I help folks explore ways they restrict in multiple areas of their life (not just with food or exercise). I help clients reconnect with themselves and re-parent themselves, learning to replace shaming, critical cognitive patterns with messages of validation and comfort.
I provide parents with verbal, written, and/or online resources and support about eating disorder basics, meal planning, HAES, weight restoration (if applicable), medical complications, etc.
When working with parents of children, I refer to Ellyn Satter's Division of Responsibility.
My approach is eclectic in that my way of being with clients/patients is client-centered, I conceptualize psychodynamically, and I use CBT techniques when indicated. Although I treat adult patients I am willing to work with parents about how best to support their child who has eating/body/weight issues. First and foremost I talk with them about making sure anyone providing treatment to their child is weight neutral and educated in what eating disorders are/are not. I encourage them to rely on those providers to do what they are trained to do and that parents should do the same - that is they are best equipped to love and support their child in a way that no provider can (the caveat to this is FBT/Maudsley method for tx of anorexia nervosa). I allow parents to express their concerns and ask whatever questions they have - providing the best answers I have and/or directing them to exceptional resources.
I am a Health at Every Size-informed eating disorder specialist. I work from an interpersonal/feminist-relational orientation and incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy as well as family therapy when appropriate. I have worked with many, many parents and families across all levels of eating disorders care, and absolutely love doing so.
I specialize in helping clients break free from the mental, emotional, and physical toll of chronic dieting, various levels of disordered eating, and body image concerns – as well as nutrition and body image healing work in eating disorder recovery. Ultimately, I help clients nurture a caring and compassionate relationship with food and their bodies through a non-weight focused, non-diet approach.
I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults at my office in Mill Valley, California. In my client sessions, I create a safe, judgment-free, therapeutic space where you can come, process, and learn how to kindly be with (and in) your body. And where you can learn how to cultivate an enjoyable, healthy, and nourishing relationship with food. In our work together, you’ll gain an understanding of how to truly listen, connect, and care for your body and yourself.
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 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.
