• 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
