Austin Counseling and Nutrition is a group practice of inclusive therapists and dietitians who specialize in helping people with eating disorders and related issues.
In addition to being eating disorder specialists, we provide help for many different types of struggles.
Some of the challenges we can help you navigate include:
Most people come across a time where they struggle with something in life. You shouldn't have to hit rock bottom to feel worthy of support. You can live a life of fulfillment and purpose, and we can help you get there.
You don't have to keep being afraid of food or body changes.
We can help you realize your true potential, unbounded by obsessions and fears.
Disordered Eating Quiz
1. Do you worry that you have lost control over how much you eat?
2. Do you compensate if you feel uncomfortably full? (ie. exercise, vomiting, laxatives)
3. Have you or a family member ever suffered with an eating disorder?
4. Have you restricted or dieted in the past? Have you lost weight intentionally or unintentionally?
5. Do you ever eat in secret or hide food?
6. Does your weight affect how you feel about yourself?
When you are consumed by disordered eating and body hatred, it affects all areas of your life. Relationships with family and friends can become strained because it feels like your emotions are all over the place. Depression and anxiety are exacerbated by disordered eating behaviors. It can make life feel really overwhelming and exhausting.
You don't have to live like this anymore.
At Austin Counseling and Nutrition, we get it and we can help.
Our Austin therapists and nutrition counselors provide eating disorder therapy and nutrition services using approaches that encourage body trust, like Health At Every Size, Embodiment, and Intuitive Eating. Further, we explore unhealed wounds that underlie the behaviors, encouraging enhanced emotional regulation and better relationships.

If you are looking for an eating disorder therapist in Austin, TX, you are in the right place. An Austin therapist can be hard to find due to the increased demand from the pandemic. The number of people struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating seems to be at an all time high. At Austin Counseling and Nutrition, we strive to have immediate availability for new clients.
In addition to therapy, people struggling with eating usually need a nutrition counselor (dietitian) to help understand their relationship with food.

Austin nutrition counselors help you understand how your body works, and what food really does for you. Working with your body is infinitely easier than working against it.
