Rena Bruckman Nutritionist
About

Our therapists work with clients on their mutually agreed upon treatment goals. Remission from eating disorder behaviors is a primary focus due to the danger of symptom use. Identifying underlying psychological and emotional issues is key in treating an eating disorder, as well as learning and practicing adaptive coping skills. 

Nutrition counseling is an integral part of eating disorder treatment. Our philosophy at THRIVE is that all foods fit. The nutritionist works with the client to develop a healthy relationship with food and normalize their eating behaviors. We accomplish this with meal planning, reducing rigidity with food selection, food exposures, navigating social media, and challenging today’s diet culture. If weight restoration is part of the treatment plan, the nutritionist and client work together to meet weight goals.

THRIVE offers in-person psychiatric evaluations as part of the multidisciplinary approach. In the event that medication is recommended as part of the treatment plan, our psychiatrist will monitor and manage a client’s medication. The psychiatrist will also screen for co-occuring psychiatric conditions and make appropriate treatment recommendations.
