Nutrition for Mental Health Recovery with Specialties in Eating Disorders, Addictions, Functional Medicine, & General Wellness
Nutrition in Recovery is dedicated to the promotion of both physical and nutritional wellness as primary components of recovery from behavioral health challenges. We are a team of specialized registered dietitian nutritionists who work with challenging cases but also help many people who do not identify as being “in recovery.” We believe in the functional medicine approach which considers the entire dimension of wellness. Our work is “trauma-informed” as well as culturally sensitive, using an integrative biopsychosocial approach. If you have been looking for expertise in nutrition, you are in the right place! Do not hesitate to contact us with questions.

Having Trouble Finding Balance?
You’re Not Alone. We’re Here to Help!
We talk about nutrition in a way that most people have never heard before. Our emphasis goes way beyond calories and macronutrients. We help people explore the profound impact that food has on the brain, the gut, the immune and endocrine systems, through using an integrative biopsychosocial approach.
We are behavioral health nutritionists, recognizing the challenges faced when attempting to make lasting health changes. We will help you on the path to a new way of life. If you struggle with food and/or body image, Nutrition in Recovery is the program for you. We will show you how to navigate the tricky food terrain with confidence. There is no “one size fits all” approach to recovery. We believe in sustainable behavior change.
