• 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!

  • 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.

  • My work with Marci changed my life. Not only my relationship with food, which I thought was irreparable, but she helped me learn how to trust myself and connect with my intuition and exist in the moment, in the world outside my thoughts and lists and calculations. I used to be so shut off. Now I feel like I am a part of the world when I am working with my clients and making meaningful friendships. My time with Marci helped make this possible.

  • “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!”

  • 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!”

  • “Sarah was instrumental in my recovery, and I’m so lucky to have worked with her! Always available, knowledgeable, understanding and kind, she was never judgmental and made me feel so comfortable throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone seeking nutritional counseling, she’s really one of the best.”

  • 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.

  • We all need a safe place to fall and a place to be real. Paula has been so patient as we peel back some emotional layers and try to understand why my eating was out of control for so long. Now I am learning a new way to see food as fuel, to read labels and make smart choices, and to apply a healthier “food as chemistry” plan. When I leave Paula’s office, I feel empowered, reassured, grateful, and rejuvenated about why and how to take better care of myself.

  • Paula’s expertise when it comes to nutrition and people is astounding. She is generous with her knowledge, optimism, and time. I never feel judged by her, and she knows how to challenge me and motivate me at the same time. Whenever I feel discouraged, knowing how much Paula believes in me helps me keep trying.

  • Paula is compassionate and authentic and takes a uniquely thoughtful approach to the eating disorder recovery process. I’ve encountered a lot of eating disorder professionals and Paula is the only one who I have ever fully trusted. Recovery is obviously not easy but Paula made it more manageable and helped me realize that it is a valuable learning process.

  • Marci is an excellent listener and offers such great insight! Her supervision and feedback have been so valuable to me (and my clients). If you’re seeking supervision, I’d recommend Marci!

  • I’ve truly enjoyed having Marci as a supervisor. She has insightful answers to all of my questions and comes to supervision with a kind, empathetic, and non-judgmental attitude.

  • Marci is absolutely brilliant and always brings her wealth of knowledge, insight, authenticity, and compassion to the table during supervision. I have had more “ah-ha” moments listening to her speak (via presentations, on podcasts, and during supervision) than I did through an entire semester of an eating disorder elective in graduate school. Marci is truly an expert in her field and doing supervision with her has been invaluable – I highly recommend her! 

  • Marci is an innovator in her clinical supervision and professional training – offering in person and virtual opportunities. Her knowledge of human biochemistry paired with attention to psycho social dynamics gives her the capacity to provide viable, researched solutions on a variety of complicated client interactions. I love that she brings her counseling skills into supervision – she doesn’t just give you the answer, rather she helps you think critically to arrive at a solution. She has a wealth of resources at her disposal including an enormous library, extensive professional network, and a fantastic reputation. It’s an honor and a privilege to learn from her.

  • Marci has a true gift when it comes to teaching and explaining. She is engaging, ridiculously smart, experienced and passionate about her work. Her course will help you feel confident and prepared to start working with eating disorder clients. I highly recommend it to anyone!

  • In January 2017 I was fortunate to see Marci Evans give an exceptional presentation on effective and safe non-dieting solutions to eating disorders recovery and gastrointestinal health. It was one of the top five most informative, dynamic, engaging, and indeed compelling presentations I have ever seen in approximately 35 years of attending conferences. Marci has the rare gift of being able to present detailed scientific information from multiple perspectives, while transforming its implications into useful and humane clinical guidance.

  • Marci is a compelling speaker who not only shares cutting-edge research and clinical wisdom, but she presents in a way that keeps the audience completely engaged – and even entertained. I highly recommend her for your event!

  • 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!!

  • Marci has not only helped me grow my clinical counseling skills, she has also helped me grow my business. She is knowledgeable and savvy, but most of all she has helped me be a more confident and focused counselor and entrepreneur.

  • Marci is one of the leading Registered Dietitians in the field of eating disorders. Her passion for providing quality eating disorder education and resources to her colleagues is evident in the way she listens carefully, researches thoroughly, and responds thoughtfully during supervision sessions. Through supervision from Marci, I have gained knowledge and confidence to better support my clients on their recovery journeys.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Marci’s training is unlike anything available to dietitians working in, or wishing to advance their understanding of, the eating disorders field. Her combination of enthusiasm, highly organized content, concrete actionables, and in-depth knowledge of the research make this training unique and invaluable. The material presented in Marci’s training can only be otherwise gleaned by extensive individual research and study, regular conference attendance, and thoughtful participation in clinical supervision. I’ve been working in the field for over nine years and was thrilled by the new nuggets of information I took away from this training and started using in my practice immediately.

    This is training is a gift that wraps Marci’s extensive knowledge and expertise in a relatable, thoughtful and energetic package that I have, and will continue to recommend without hesitation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Although my work with Marci has focused primarily on eating, she has been instrumental in helping me to learn it is okay to advocate for my needs and that I deserve to have them met. That I am worthy and don’t have to apologize for who I am and who I’m not, particularly with respect to my body. I’m working on loving it, one day at a time. I believe when a person is strong, it’s because they have an army behind them, helping them through the hardest parts of life. Thank you for being a member of my treasured army Marci, thank you.

  • Marci has a gift for working with those with eating disorders. Her patience, her insight, and her nonjudgmental approach enabled me to work through my longstanding fear of food, weight gain, and calories. She has proven herself to be one of the most outstanding dietitians in the field.
