5 Week Mindful Eating Meal Support Series

Is working on your relationship with food a part of your goals for 2017?

Marci RD Nutrition is offering a 5-week meal support series with

eating disorder and Intuitive Eating expert Sarah Patten. Details below!


Who should consider participating?

Anyone actively working on their eating disorder recovery as well as those focused on improving their relationship with food, re-learning their body’s hunger and fullness cues, and developing self-trust around consuming challenging or “forbidden” foods. Participants must be appropriate for an outpatient level of care and must be working with an individual therapist and dietitian.

Groups will be led by Sarah Patten, a registered dietitian, eating disorder expert, and Intuitive Eating specialist with Marci RD Nutrition.

What we offer:

A five-week meal support series focused on consuming adequate and challenging meals in a supportive group environment.

Our first group will consist of introductions, an orientation to the keys of effective exposures, as well as personalized goal setting. YOU decide how to best utilize exposures in the groups to follow. The remaining four weeks will consist of mindfulness based eating exercises, dining together as a group, and post-meal processing.

When will the group be held?


Tuesday evenings from 7-8:15pm; 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/21 and 2/28 (we will skip Tuesday, 2/14)


Where we will meet:

Marci RD Nutrition Counseling Office

22 Hilliard St., Cambridge, MA 02138

1st floor, door on the right

Why join our group?

Exposure to challenging meals in a supportive environment fosters greater self-trust while decreasing fear and anxiety over time. Food avoidance is a big risk factor for relapse and can hold one back from making peace with food once and for all. This group will help you to become more confident in your ability to feed yourself in an adequate, varied, and enjoyable way.



$225 total ($45/group x5 weeks)


In addition to the weekly support from Sarah and the other group members, you will leave this group with a toolbox of resources to take with you!
