Dietitian Referral Information

If you are seeking treatment for an eating disorder, I believe it is also important for you to see a dietitian in addition to your work with me. Below are a couple of referrals in the Chicagoland area. Both dietitians specialize in working with eating disorders and strongly believe in a treatment team approach, which means they keep in close communication with me when we are working together.
