Nutrition Therapy & Meal Support

Nutrition Therapy

At Therapeutic Oasis of the Palm Beaches, nutrition therapy is as unique as you.  When working with our registered dietitian/nutrition therapist, you will experience an intuitive eating philosophy that encourages a non-diet, self-regulated relationship with food.  Our intent is to have you truly work with your food and symptoms in a non-judgmental manner, rather than focus on food as the “problem”, as is often the case when individuals meet with medical-model nutritionists. Through individual sessions, clients learn to nourish their bodies and develop more supportive eating patterns, eventually moving toward intuitive eating.  Whether you are seeking guidance to prevent health issues, recovering from the torment of diets, or healing from disordered eating or an eating disorder, you will truly feel heard and supported at the Oasis.

Meal Support Therapy

Healing one’s relationship with food goes well beyond simply learning and talking about food. To truly find peace from an eating disorder or disordered eating, one must begin to experience nourishment in a safe and supportive place. Meal Support Therapy at Therapeutic Oasis not only offers individuals the opportunity to explore eating in a relaxed and pleasant environment, but also allows them to witness normal eating, learning to make choices that meet their particular needs.

Meal Support Therapy is an important component of the Eating Disorders Program at Oasis. Through pre- and post-meal process with our nutrition therapist, individuals are guided to tune into their bodies’ signals of hunger and satiety.  Our nutrition therapist will help participants identify emotions, discuss challenges, and help set intentions to work through in the meal. This unique experience can relieve much of the anxiety that has accompanied previous meals, moving clients toward true enjoyment of eating and making peace with food.
