Every session will look different, but my goal is that you would leave feeling hopeful, reflective, challenged, and deeply cared for. Together, we will check in on goals set from the previous session and process how your week went navigating your relationship with food. You will receive therapy skills, nutrition education, food exposure opportunities, and a place just to be seen and heard every time we meet.
Accountability is crucial to every recovery. Having access to comfortable and safe spaces to eat is even more important. Now, at Meant to Eat Nutrition Counseling, we offer individual meal support at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Meant To Eat Nutrition Counseling specializes in the treatment of all eating disorders and disordered eating including:

Caroline Shermer provides specialized nutrition counseling utilizing skills from therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Radically Open DBT (RO-DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
