Marci RD Nutrition: Food & Body Image Healers® helps clinicians and clients alike develop smart, enduring strategies for overcoming eating disorders, disordered eating, and the backlash of chronic dieting.

Our organization serves two groups of people – individuals looking to develop a healthier relationship to food and their bodies and clinicians seeking training on how to counsel individuals in recovery from eating disorders and disordered eating. However, a single working philosophy informs the work we do in both fields.

  • Our job is to help individuals tap into their own inner wisdom and strength which is naturally inside each and every one of us. We think of ourselves as guides, companions, and partners along the road to learning, growing, and healing.
  • It is possible to develop a peaceful relationship to food and bodies despite the lack of this modeled in our Western society.
  • We embrace a counter-cultural message which promotes body diversity, fat positivity, and non-diet principles. We disavow weight-centric messaging and the notion that bodies are meant to be controlled or managed.
  • The integration of both nutrition and psychology is key to fueling lasting transformation.
  • As educators and practitioners, our work with individual clients informs and enhances our clinician training programs, and vice versa.
  • The work we do is strongly rooted in the development of trusting relationships built on mutual respect, compassion, and empathy.
  • We believe that when working with individuals our best work is done when we listen more than we speak.
  • We remain committed to continued growth and learning and invest our time and financial resources to stay abreast in the most current research and best practices.
  • Health At Every Size and Intuitive Eating Principles infuse our counseling, speaking, and teaching.

I have been attending conferences for over 30 years. Marci is one of the best speakers I have  heard in my career. She is an extremely knowledgeable and insightful and powerful speaker. She presents on the most complex issues and provides this information in a dynamic and professional manner. I could listen to her present all day.

Beth Mayer, LICSW

Working with Marci in individual supervision has been the best investment I have made in my career. Marci is incredibly knowledgeable, direct, and able to cover a lot of material in one session if need be. Marci is reliable and available. Best yet, I leave our sessions feeling incredibly supported and my confidence in my role on the treatment and as an eating disorder expert has grown tremendously.

Annie Goldsmith RD, LDN

I can honestly say my work with Sarah has truly been transformative. She has helped me to learn about intuitive eating and to work toward accepting my body as it is.  My thought process about my body image and my attitude toward food has shifted to a healthier place.  I am fortunate to work with Sarah and to learn life long strategies to keep me in a mentally and physically better place.

Marci is exceptional at listening not just to what you are saying, but to what is between your words, the subtle artful skill of intuitive listening. If you are looking to be supported by a master guide to deepen and grow your skills, Marci will not disappoint!!

Stacey Richmond RD, CEDRD

Marci has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Through my supervision with Marci, I have gained further insight on how to approach different clinical situations with clients and gained tools that help to enhance my skills in counseling within the field of eating disorder recovery.  Marci’s warmth, empathy, and kindness makes being supervised by her and working towards my CEDRD a pleasure!
