Eating disorders are treatable complex illnesses and nutritional rehabilitation is a critical component to eating disorder recovery. The dieticians at Dr. Daisy Miller and Associates are among the highest level outpatient treatment providers for patients and their families struggling with eating disorders. We work with clients experiencing symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), Orthorexia, and AFRID (Avoidant, Restrictive, Food Intake Disorder).
We provide sound nutrition plans and communicate these plans with compassion and patience. We are well-skilled in applying behavioral and psychological models to nutrition counseling for eating disorders. These therapy tools help us better address our clients’ common feelings of ambivalence, resistance, and discouragement when they hit bumps in the road.
Outpatient eating disorder treatment is typically multi-faceted, involving a psychologist, a nutritionist (that’s us), a psychiatrist (if medications are needed), and a general physician (for overseeing medical management). We are well-networked with many eating disorder specialists with whom we refer and collaborate throughout the DC metropolitan area.
We offer individual nutritional counseling for older teens and adults. For younger teens and children, we work with parents and use Family Based Treatment or The Maudsley Method for eating disorders recovery.
