Teen Nutrition

WE TEACH TEENS SKILLS TO NOURISH THEIR BODIES AND BUILD A GREAT SELF-IMAGE

We combine adolescent nutrition with DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) to help teens build healthy self-care habits that last a lifetime 

Is your teen...

  • Confused about what, when, and how much to eat? 

  • Dieting or following a food trend like eating 'clean' or 'going vegan'?

  • Over-eating at times and under-eating at other times? 

  • Managing both stress and perfectionism? 

  • Unhappy with her size and shape? 

  • Unsure about how to fuel her body for sports?

  • Or, is your teen a very picky eater?      WE CAN HELP!

We take a whole-health approach and focus on self-care-skills for high school, college, & beyond...

HOW WE WORK WITH TEENS:

~ We treat teens as individuals but we include parents every step of the way.

~ Our treatment approach is individualized, flexible, and based on sound, evidenced-based adolescent nutrition.

~ To be truly effective, we combine nutrition counseling with other therapeutic models (where appropriate), which include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Intuitive and Interoceptive Eating, mindfulness based therapies, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).  If your son or daughter has an eating disorder we will come up with an individualized treatment plan. This may include Family Based Treatment, which you can learn about here.

~ If your teen needs more support, we have a great referral network of adolescent professionals around the DC metropolitan area

~ IS YOUR TEEN REALLY BUSY? WORK WITH US BY TELEHEALTH (video conferencing using Zoom) 

Have a teen in COLLEGE?

College presents a number of challenges: 

  • Dining halls can be overwhelming

  • Irregular class schedules lead to irregular eating times

  • Late night social eating is the norm

  • Body image can suffer on campus, which can lead to disordered eating

  • College classes can be stressful!

Our dietitians are college specialists. We can help your teen navigate dorm cafeterias, apartment living, managing stress, and self-regulating emotions.

Need a booster session mid-semester? No problem! We can work together by phone or video conference. 

We teach teens to care for their bodies with love and self-respect.
