“And I said to my body, softly, ‘I want to be your friend,’ it took a long breath, and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.”
Integrative medicine puts the patient at the center and examines the physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. As partners in this process, we will take all of these things into consideration when restoring your health. Learn more about Intuitive Eating here.

How to Use RO DBT to Make Peace With Food
While most forms of cognitive-behavioral therapy work on building self-will, Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) takes almost the opposite approach. It understands that for some people, over control can be unhealthy and possibly detrimental.
Embrace the Intuitive Eating lifestyle!

From a Grateful Client:
“Before working with Lynae, I had only seen hospital-based outpatient dietitians. The sessions were monotonous and filled with advice I could have given myself. I didn’t know what to expect or what I could get from an outpatient dietician, but I hoped there was more. Working with Lynae was a vastly different experience. Sessions were a combination of nutrition, therapy, and healing connection.
I learned about what really goes on inside my body- digestion, repair, metabolism, etc. – as opposed to what diet culture told me about my body- certain foods and portions are bad, carbs and fat make me gain weight, etc.. We worked to understand the underlying struggles and influences that led to my food, body, and exercise beliefs. Lynae adapted to my changing needs- varying levels of nutrition guidance- and never lacked new ideas of ways to challenge me. She was vital in my journey towards healing my relationship to food, exercise, and my body, towards self-trust and becoming the expert on my own body.”

“From my journey to make peace, I did not get what I hoped for, but what I got is nothing short of a miracle. It didn’t come to me with great fanfare. In fact, I barely noticed it at all. I read Health at Every Size® several years ago after 35 years of the diet/weight gain […]”
