The EDSNA groups listed above are facilitated by both a psychologist and dietitian. In recovery from an eating disorder/disordered eating, the support of a dietitian trained in these areas can be instrumental to healing. For more information about Kalin Herbach and her team at The Nourish Collective, see below.  

Another Edmonton-based dietitian is Selene Yan (Embodied RD). In Calgary, Renee & Nora from Ambitious RD can also provide support in this area.
