Hens come in all shapes, sizes and colors

We work in a weight-neutral and food-neutral environment. We work on eating in a mindful manner, finding joy in food and nutrition to meet your needs. We welcome your questions and concerns with eating, cooking, food and all things nutrition related. We want to help you find peace with your body and learn to trust your body in addition to providing nutrition education as needed.

In a typical nutrition visit, we will review your health history, nutrition habits and help you build a sustainable way of eating. We don’t create specific menus, but we will help you to build a plate for all occasions.

We encourage you to schedule an appointment if you think you have symptoms that suggest an eating disorder, or you are recovering from an eating disorder.

Eating Disorder Support

We recognize the need for education and support around eating disorders and preoccupation with food, weight, and body image. Eating disorders are complicated medical and psychological conditions that affect a wide range of individuals, including people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes and weights. 

Research has shown that a multidisciplinary approach to treatment is most effective for long-term success for an eating disorder. Student Health Services (SHS) and the Center for Counseling and Student Development (CCSD) work closely together to support students with disordered eating. Where appropriate, we offer coordinated care with medical doctors, dietitians and psychological counselors. An appropriate treatment plan will be established based on level of care required and services available on-campus and/or off-campus, to promote recovery and reduce the risk of relapse.

You can schedule an appointment through SHS at 302-831-2226 or through CCSD at 302-831-2141, whichever is more comfortable. We can then coordinate our integrated services with your partnership.
