"I work with Liz in collaboration on eating disorder cases. She is fantastic. Liz has an incredible way with clients. She is clear, compassionate and thoroughly invested in the person and their needs. She practices ongoing stellar collaboration. With eating disorder cases, it’s extremely important have every team member on the same page because of the facets of the disease. Liz sees the whole person holistically. She's amazing, and I love working together. I would send her all my clients if her office was closer to Massachusetts!n"- Jennifer Rego, LICSW • June 2016
"Liz and I have worked together on eating disorder cases. Liz is a nutritionist, and I am a therapist. She and I also are part of a professional peer group in which we consult and advise on cases. In this group, Liz and I also receive support to make sure that our team goals are aligned with the needs of the client. I highly recommend Liz as a nutritionist. Eating disorders can have a tight grip on clients, and clients can feel very defeated in their fight against the eating disorder and their desire for recovery. I often request that Liz participate on eating disorders clinical teams. Liz is a very experienced, knowledgeable clinician who is masterful at meeting clients where they are at - seeing where they are ready to make shifts in their food intake. Liz is also kind and supportive, setting up an environment where clients feel free to share their food challenges and to move away from the places they feel so stuck around food. She is a joy to work with, and the eating disorder field is lucky to have her."- Hannah Saxe, LICSW • May 2016
