Juliet Zuercher is a nationally known expert in nutrition and eating disorders with more than 20 years of experience. She has served as a leader at some of the nation’s most established eating disorder treatment centers. Her experience includes providing direct patient care, program development, recruitment and training of staff, and coordination of multidisciplinary care at all levels, including acute inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and private practice. A sought-after speaker and consultant, she has traveled the country presenting workshops to help educate professionals about treating eating disorders.
She endorses an approach connecting thoughts and feelings to one’s relationship with food and body image, emphasizing the importance of nutrition. She tailors her approach to include structured eating programs for severely compromised patients and those beginning to embrace recovery, and intuitive eating for patients more established in the recovery process. She is a firm believer that individuals of all backgrounds, size diversity and body type can experience a healthy relationship with food. She works with patients to help them learn to trust their internal cues, which leads to balanced eating and enjoyment of physical activity, instead of being consumed by counterproductive cycles of dieting and weight loss.
This holistic approach encompasses her extensive experience and best practice standards in the field of eating disorders and lifestyle management. Juliet has worked with a variety of media outlets, including television, print media, radio and book authors to promote a mind, body, and spirit approach to eating disorder treatment.
