We specialize in helping individuals recover from eating disorders, disordered eating, and the backlash of chronic dieting. As eating disorder experts and Food and Body Image Healers® we work in partnership with our clients to tap into their inner wisdom and strength to discover a pattern of eating and moving that supports their unique mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Our approach is highly individualized and rooted in developing a strong relationship with everyone we have the pleasure of working alongside. We blend expertise in nutrition and psychology to fuel lasting transformation. Despite the seriousness of our work, there is a remarkable amount of laughter in our sessions and smiles on our faces because we love what we do. According to a recent anonymous survey of our clients, we are most often described as compassionate, non-judgmental, knowledgeable, and genuinely helpful.

Philosophy

  1. We believe that people inherently possess the wisdom and strength to make powerful changes in their lives.
  2. We believe in a body positive and weight inclusive approach that focuses on behaviors, not weight or numbers, as a key to lasting health
  3. We believe that everyone deserves a life that is free of body and food obsession
  4. We believe that food and body image healing are critical components to creating a full and vibrant life
  5. We believe that full eating disorder recovery is possible

Yoga for Food & Body Image Healing

Sarah Patten, registered dietitian nutritionist and registered yoga teacher offers individual and small group yoga therapy. By combining her years of eating disorder experience with her yoga training, Sarah uses the body as a source of healing for her clients. Specifically, she uses yoga to help her clients improve negative body image, transform their relationship […]

Before nutrition counseling, I was prepared to get weight loss surgery to “fix” my eating issues. I was unhappy, hopeless, and convinced that there were no other options…until I had my first session with Sarah Patten. Sarah creates a warm, trusting atmosphere and I always feel like I can confide in her my most alarming food fears. She taught me that my so called “problem” wasn’t in my gut, it was in my head. Food always held this power over me and, gradually, Sarah taught me to break away. Now, I’m free. I can honestly say I’ve never felt healthier or happier and I owe it all to Sarah’s constant support!”

Jamie in Recovery

“I leave my sessions with Marci feeling better, lighter and more like myself. She has been and continues to be such a positive presence in my life, and I’m just so glad to have her!”

Deb in Recovery

Paula is more like a nutrition therapist. Of course her knowledge in nutrition is extensive, but her heart is just as big! Her caring nature is evident in the way she interacts and respects each person she encounters! Her presence gives one a feeling of being worthy and a feeling of warmth.

Roxanne in Recovery

When I began working with Sarah, I was very rigidly set in destructive patterns of behavior; for many years, breaking away from such patterns felt out of reach for me. In our work together, I developed a sense of empowerment over my nutrition, exercise, and health. I can genuinely state that my life has changed and improved, and thank her for her time with me!

Lauren in Recovery

I think of Paula more as my life coach, rather than my nutritionist. She has an all-inclusive approach to help me figure out why I am eating the way that I do, which helps me to look at the big picture. I find that I am put at ease whenever I come to her office, and I really don’t know what I would do without her. I feel incredibly fortunate to benefit from her wisdom and guidance.
