Julia Cassidy, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S
Certified Eating Disorder Specialist Supervisor
Licensed Body Positive Facilitator
Certified Intuitive Eating Coach
Julia is passionate about helping individuals heal the relationship with food and their body. Part of my work is teaching self compassion while you are embracing the idea of total embodiment and food healing. Food healing embraces the idea of eating for your personal well being. I feel strongly about meeting your needs through flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and senses satisfaction. I am firm in my belief for weight inclusivity, which is accepting and respecting the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes.
