Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Marissa and I'm a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) providing in person and virtual nutrition counseling to adults, adolescents, and families in my office in Rolling Hills Estates, Ca. DUE TO COVID-19, ALL SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY BEING HELD VIA A HIPAA COMPLIANT TELEHEALTH PLATFORM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. I have a passion for helping my clients recover and stay recovered from eating eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and disordered patterns of eating. Whether you or your child are in the beginning stages of disordered eating patterns, or are about to be discharged from a treatment facility, I am able to work as a member of your outpatient treatment team to provide you the tools you need to live a life free from an eating disorder. I believe you are able to cultivate a healthier relationship to food, body, and movement. Some other conditions I am experienced with are improved nutrition for sports, diabetes, GI concerns, and high triglycerides.
My approach is individualized, meaning I will meet you wherever you are in your health journey, and build a trusting relationship with you so that we can work together as a team to improve your overall wellness. By implementing most current evidence based research, my clients feel safe and supported in my care.
By utilizing HAES (Health at Every Size) and IE (Intuitive Eating) philosophies, I am able to help my clients achieve longterm health. I practice from a weight neutral approach, meaning weight will not be the primary focus (unless weight restoration is the goal), but rather other health sustaining behaviors that will yield to one's natural body weight. I can assist you at the grocery store, and at a restaurant outing to increase your confidence selecting foods that are nourishing and tasty.
I also regularly contract with companies to provide nutrition related care to their organizations, following various regulatory guidelines. Some companies I have contracted with have been "The Canterbury", "Little Sisters of the Poor", "The Salvation Army; Campus at Crestmont", Beach Cities Health District, and "Head Start" programs.
Contact me now to schedule your first appointment, or to discuss how I may be a good fit for your company.
