Most of my experience is working with eating disorders which are mental illnesses. My approach is unique to most dietitians in the fact that I have to understand each person from a biological, psychological and social aspect. I collect a very detailed, personalized list of information from each client in order to provide personalized meal plans, nutrient recommendations, labs and to help give each client the best evidence based practice recommendations. I work closely with the clients therapist, family if appropriate, doctor, or any other vital professional within the treatment scope.
The Bio-Psycho-Social Approach works not only well with eating disorders but also clients who struggle with weight management. This approach has strong evidence for most disease states and produces lasting, positive results for most all clients.
