Disordered Eating & Eating Disorders
Suzanne educates her clients about the negative effects of restrictive dieting, dispels nutrition and exercise myths and misinformation, and creates balanced eating and activity plans with a Health at Every Size approach.
She helps clients decode their “fat feelings,” separate physical from emotional hungers, reconnect with their body and true self, and understand what purpose restricting, bingeing, purging, compulsive exercise, and/or rigid food rules are serving in their lives.
Suzanne effectively challenges distorted thoughts about food, exercise, and body/weight and teaches skills in how to express, nurture, and tolerate emotions without abusing food, exercise, or their bodies.
Full recovery from eating disorders is possible with the help of a strong, compassionate treatment team. Referrals to other team members are available if needed.

Following a low FODMAP diet can help identify your triggers. FODMAPs are small chain sugars and fibers that are poorly digested and can contribute to gas, bloating and other digestive woes. FODMAPs are fast food for gut bacteria. When the bacteria consume the FODMAPs, they produce gas. Following a low FODMAP diet can be a challenge without the help of a FODMAP knowledgeable dietitian.
