On the occasion of the one year anniversary of my affiliation with the awesome, Katherine (Katie) Grubiak, RD, I want to highlight her fabulous work and contribution to my practice.
Eating disorders are best addressed by a multidisciplinary approach. Thus, I was extremely excited when, one year ago, I moved to a larger space and arranged an affiliation with Katherine Grubiak, RD, who works part-time in my suite. Ms. Grubiak brings a wealth of experience with eating disorders in both adolescents and adults, and her approach is consistent with the latest evidence-based treatments.
Our clients benefit from our integrated approach for eating disorders and we tailor treatment to each client or family. Additionally, we offer services as a team or individually. This benefits our clients who already have a dietitian or therapist and are seeking to add one member to their treatment team.
Ms. Grubiak, in addition to nutrition counseling sessions at the office, also provides additional support to those seeking help with preparing, portioning, or eating meals. These may occur in the client’s home, office, school, or location of choice (restaurant, supermarket, etc.).

Ms. Grubiak’s belief is that a practitioner needs knowledge, compassion, patience, and creativity to inspire change. The practitioner must honor the individuality and goals of each person who enters her care. There should be no limitations on their journey or their healing.
