Why choose Restored Purpose Counseling for nutrition counseling

When you're looking for support in your wellness journey, it's important to find the right fit. Here are a few reasons to consider working with our practice. If you're still not sure, we invite you to schedule a free consultation to learn more about how we can help.

We're registered dietitians.

When you choose Restored Purpose, you'll be working with a registered dietitian nutritionist—not simply a "nutritionist." Registered dietitians must complete rigorous coursework and internships before passing an exam to earn their license. This ensures that you'll receive the highest quality of care.

We're well-versed in treating eating disorders.

We're dedicated to helping our clients cultivate a more peaceful relationship with food. Whether you're in recovery from anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, orthorexia, or a different eating disorder, our trained professionals are here to support you.

We recognize that health takes on many forms.

Nutrition can be a sensitive topic for anyone, especially those in eating disorder recovery. At Restored Purpose, we utilize nutrition as a tool to improve your mental and physical health, as well as your overall relationship with your body. Instead of only focusing on "optimal" health or "proper" nutrition, we help you tune into how you feel about what you're eating, too.

When Restored Purpose might not be the best fit for your needs

We also recognize that our practice may not be right for every situation. Here are some reasons that another practice may be a better fit for your unique needs.

You're only looking to lose weight.

Our nutritionists recognize that a smaller body often doesn't equate to better health. Our approach to nutrition counseling is informed by non-diet, intuitive eating, and Health at Every Size® principles, so losing weight isn't at the forefront of our work. Rather, we help our clients heal their relationship with food and their bodies by helping them gain self-trust and acceptance.

You're located in a state we can't serve.

We're a team of registered dietitians who are licensed in the state of Florida, so our clients must be located in-state (with the exception of those residing in Georgia or Wisconsin). Thankfully, our virtual services allow us to help people living across the state.

You need a higher level of care.

Eating disorders are serious conditions that can significantly impact your ability to live a healthy life. If your health is currently at risk, we encourage you to seek a higher level of care. Once you've been able to find your footing in recovery, we're happy to work with you.

FAQs about working with a nutritionist in Jacksonville, FL

What is the difference between a nutritionist and a dietician?

A registered dietitian is a professional who has completed undergraduate education in nutrition, including thousands of hours of supervised practice. They have extensive knowledge of food allergies, how to prevent illnesses using nutrition, and how to help people reach optimized health (which can include mental and emotional health).
A nutritionist is a blanket term for people who help clients reach their nutrition and health goals. This could be a registered dietitian, but this could also be a health coach or someone without formal nutrition education.
At Restored Purpose Counseling, all of our nutritionists are registered dietitians in the state of Florida.

How do I choose a good nutritionist?

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a nutritionist in Jacksonville. You'll want to review their credentials to make sure that they're qualified to help people facing similar issues to you.
You'll also want to look into their approach to make sure it resonates with you, and that you feel comfortable discussing your nutrition needs with this person.

Is it worth seeing a nutritionist?

Yes, absolutely! We all need to eat, but diet culture (and other challenges) can make it difficult to nourish our bodies. Nutritionists can help you navigate this.
Working with a nutritionist gives you the one-on-one support you need to focus on your individual nutrition goals, lifestyle choices, and relationships with food and your body. Plus, we also offer group support and meal support for extra encouragement and guidance.
