At Around the Plate, we want to help you discover confidence and joy at the table.
If you are like many of our clients, you probably already know a lot about nutrition. In fact, you probably read, hear, or see nutrition information on a daily basis. But despite what you discover, applying what you learn very rarely leads you to a more positive eating experience. Instead, you often find yourself feeling unsure about what to eat or feel guilty or shameful after enjoying foods you used to love.
In some cases, the nutrition information you’ve attempted to adhere to puts you at risk for disordered eating or an eating disorder. Eating disorders are serious conditions that are often triggered by diets and diet culture. If you think you or someone you know has an eating disorder, start here. Recovery is possible and our team is here to help.
If you feel stuck or frustrated, we would love to help you reclaim your confidence and joy at the table. Our scope of expertise includes the following:
- Non-diet approaches towards wellness (Health at Every Size Approach)
- Disordered eating and nutrition confusion
- Eating disorder recovery (Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, OSFED)
- Emotional eating
- Digestion issues
- Body dissatisfaction
- Family and individual meal planning and support
Around the Plate’s Core Values
Individualized Care. Nutrition is incredibly personal and there is no one-size-fits all plan that works for everyone. At Around the Plate, our approach is always individualized to best assist in meeting your unique needs in a way that supports a high quality of life. Although nutrition is important, our model takes individual preferences into account by also focusing on eating environment, body trust, and food enjoyment.
Body-Neutral Approach. Our desire to help people improve their quality of life through the way in which they eat is not dependent on their weight status. We believe individuals come in all shapes and sizes and our desire is to help people achieve and maintain a biologically appropriate weight. This is a weight that is not determined by a number on a scale. Instead it’s one that’s largely determined by your genetics and achieved and maintained through self-care.
Collaborative Support. Around the Plate Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are just one member of your wellness team. It is expected that all team members keep the RDN team updated on your progress and collaborate on treatment plans. It is also expected that each RDN will work with medical practitioners, therapists, physical therapists, etc. to ensure highest level of care at all times.
Community-Centered. Improving quality of life doesn’t stop at our office doors. In order to effectively support you, we also want to change the health culture within our communities. This means that our team actively seeks out opportunities to spread our positive health message across the communities in which we live. We will also partner with other like-minded businesses and organizations throughout our communities.
