Get Started

“I was terrified of getting support. Now, I can’t imagine my life without having achieved freedom from my eating disorder. My dietitian met me where I was. She helped me to grow the skills that I needed to re-gain healthy eating habits. She also connected me with a therapist so that I could get help with anxiety – this was critical to my success!”

Your eating disorder questions, answered.

At Thrive, we believe that your body’s data is priceless when it comes to managing any health condition—including eating disorders. But, we also know that focusing on weight can be triggering for many people. That’s why we monitor your nutritional status through gentle nutrition-focused physical exam, micronutrient testing, screening, and biometrics to track progress and ensure your body is getting the replenishing nutrients you need to heal and recover.

If measuring your weight is necessary, we use a numberless scale from MyClearStep. The scale sends the weight into our system via Bluetooth without ever displaying a number. Learn more HERE.
Another way that your Thrive team may measure progress is by use of the Recovery Record app for eating disorder recovery. Learn more HERE.
Our team of eating disorder dietitians and specialists focus on optimizing nutrition with a food-first approach (as well as supplementation as needed and appropriate). While we also support the emotional and psychological side of anxiety and compulsion around food, weight, and body image, we are not mental health professionals. We require that our clients with eating disorders work with a mental health professional and a registered dietitian nutritionist for eating disorders simultaneously. 
Thrive is a nutrition-centric primary care practice, which means we offer comprehensive healthcare, guided by the power of food. When it comes to eating disorders, a registered dietitian nutritionist is an essential part of an interdisciplinary team for supporting treatment and recovery. Along with our primary care providers and RDs, we also work closely with therapists, case managers, nurses, and/or psychologists. We combine our nutrition knowledge with strong counseling skills to create a caring and positive space for our patients.  
A registered dietitian nutritionist is an essential part of an interdisciplinary team for supporting eating disorder treatment and recovery.  We work closely with this team, which may include doctors, therapists, case managers, nurses, and/or psychologists. We combine our nutrition knowledge with strong counseling skills to create a caring and positive space for our patients. 

Some of the specific roles of an Eating Disorder Nutritionist include:

  • Create a safe environment to address your relationship with food and body issues that are barriers to optimum health
  • Ally with you to discover and enhance your ability to re-direct and sustain the behavior and capability needed to sustain nutritional, physical, and emotional well-being
  • Re-direct behaviors to encourage sustainable nutritional, physical, and emotional well-bein
  • Translation of nutrition science into practical advice on healthy eating
  • Gentle education around the value of macro and micronutrients
  • Calculating nutrient needs
  • Creating tailored meal plans
  • Adjusting plans based on eating disorder history and behaviors (i.e., restriction, purging, or laxative abuse)
  • Practical education around food shopping, meal planning, and preparation
  • Normalizing healthy eating behaviors
  • Recommendation of dietary supplements for safe nutrient repletion
  • Monitoring of nutritional status through a nutrition-focused physical exam, micronutrient testing, screening, and biometrics
The word ‘nutritionist’ is legally meaningless.  On the other hand, eating disorder dietitians have a minimum of a master’s degree in an accredited nutrition program, a year-long clinical internship, have passed a board exam, then have additional training and experience working within the specialized field of eating disorders. 
Eating disorder dietitians can legally provide medical nutrition therapy for disordered eating, meaning they can provide insurance-covered medical care for diagnosed eating disorder patients.  ED dietitians also are qualified to collaborate with other licensed healthcare professionals on the care team, such as physicians and mental health professionals. 
Whether you, or a loved one, struggles with anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating, or other disordered eating problems, working with a registered dietitian nutritionist for your recovery ensures that you receive evidence-based, quality, and effective nutrition therapy.
We support with improving disordered eating, body image concerns, and nutritional status for individuals with:
  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Compulsive Overeating
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Night Eating Syndrome
  • Orthorexia
  • Pica
  • Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
  • PANS and PANDA
  • Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED) – meeting some, but not all of the criteria for an eating disorder. 
We work with adults, adolescents, and children.  We also can screen for disordered eating and refer to qualified allied professionals as needed. We are an outpatient clinic and do not provide inpatient care for eating disorders. In cases where inpatient care may be needed, we coordinate and refer as necessary.
Our team of ED dietitian specialists optimize oral nutrition with a food-first approach and additional use supplementation as needed and appropriate.  Simultaneously, we support the emotional and psychological side of anxiety and compulsion around food, weight, and body image.  However, we are not mental health professionals.  We require that our clients with eating disorders work with a mental health professional and a registered dietitian nutritionist for eating disorders simultaneously.
Eating disorders are serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.  Thus, it’s critical to work with an allied team to identify suspected eating disorders and to support with recovery in an appropriate care setting.
Patients with an eating disorder are assigned to one of our trained and experienced eating disorder dietitians. You can learn more about Kay Graner, MNS, RD, LDN, IFNCP HERE, or about Brittany Hampton, MS, RDN, LDN HERE. Local patients may also work with a Thrive primary care provider as a part of their full care team.
