Nutritional Counseling

Midwest Counseling offers a safe place to explore your relationship with food.

 

Maybe you have anxiety around certain foods, find yourself seeking comfort in food, or feel out of control with eating. Maybe you’ve recently recovered from an addiction and are learning how to nourish your body. You may be seeking nutritional guidance because you have a food allergy or a medical condition that places limitations on food or exercise. Or, maybe you have tried for many years to balance your relationship with food, but find yourself in a cycle of harsh, critical self-talk.

Midwest Counseling can provide non-judgmental, evidence-based support.
