We're so excited to announce our new Intuitive Eating Group Program

Do You Want to Improve Your Relationship with Food?

Looking for Guidance on How to Honor Your Nutritional Needs?

Struggling with Recovery From an Eating Disorder?

Marci RD Nutrition has a 5-week Intuitive Eating Group Program that will Transform You and Your Life!  We will help you navigate the complex journey of learning to listen to your body’s needs while in a supportive group environment! 

This program, led by Eating Disorder and Intuitive Eating expert, Sarah Patten, will help you:

  • Discover how to listen and reconnect with your body's hunger and fullness cues
  • Learn to trust yourself to make decisions around what or how much to eat
  • Take back your power around food
  • Reconnect to your body's innate wisdom to determine the right amount of food for you
  • Develop self-trust around eating challenging or “forbidden” foods
  • Practice being more mindful at meal times in a safe and supportive environment
Why Join our Group Program? 
  • Exposure to challenging meals in a supportive environment fosters greater self-trust while decreasing fear and anxiety over time.
  • Avoidance of particular foods or eating in a social setting is a big risk factor for relapse and can hold one back from making peace with food once and for all.
We will help you become more confident in your ability to feed yourself in an adequate, varied, and enjoyable way.
