Elizabeth Jackson

Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, Licensed Dietician/Nutritionist

My work with families is based on the research-supported methods of responsive feeding; my work with adolescents and adults is based on the end goal of restoring, or establishing for the first time, internally regulated eating, so that you can attune to and attend to body cues.

Eating “should be” a natural, pleasurable, and social activity—but it may fill you with dread, fear, or shame, with worries or rituals that consume your day. Feeding your child may be a joy–or a daily battle that leaves you both in tears. Picky eating may cause anxiety about meals with others. You may have a medical diagnosis which requires a special diet—yet eat in a way that worsens health or weight, leaving you feeling guilty and defeated. Your sense of self may be largely dependent on your weight. You may not be sure which is worse, your eating issues or substance use, but know that when you start to treat one, the other worsens. And, actually, you might feel ambivalent or even afraid to give up distorted eating behaviors, as they have helped you cope with difficult emotions for years.

Whether your struggles started in childhood or later on, whether you have concerns regarding feeding yourself or your children, I can help. I am a Licensed and Registered Dietitian specializing in eating disorders, co-occurring/substance use disorders, child and family feeding issues and non-diet behavior change to improve health. With over 3 decades in this field, I will on work with you (and other team members) on individualized, collaborative, step-by-step change that increases safety first, as needed, and eating and feeding competence—ability to feed oneself/others well and feel good about doing so.

My work with families is based on the research-supported methods of responsive feeding; my work with adolescents and adults is based on the end goal of restoring, or establishing for the first time, internally regulated eating, so that you can attune to and attend to body cues. Combined with gently introducing ideas for improving food selection, you will learn how to come to peace with eating and feeding and how to nurture yourself and your children.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
