LYNNE MARTIN, RD
EATING DISORDER AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST
All You Need to Know
I have been working with people who struggle with eating disorders for over 25 years. I started out my career at the, Toronto General Hospital Eating Disorders program, a world-renowned treatment facility with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral therapy.
When I moved to the bay area I became a founding member of New Dawn Eating Disorders Program in Sausalito (2005-2009) and La Ventana Eating Disorders center in San Francisco (Dec.2009-Nov. 2010). I played a key role in the planning and development of the nutrition component in both programs. More recently I have ventured out on my own in private practice.
I hold a BASc. in Applied Human Nutrition. I am licensed by the commission of Dietetic Registration (CRD) and a certified adolescent weight management specialist.

Food and Feelings
The Guidance You Need
I like to help individuals slowly start to explore how food and feelings get intertwined. You will learn how to separate the food from the feelings which will allow you to have a new healthier relationship with food.
Taking back the Power
I believe that when certain foods are avoided they become more powerful and have the ability to cause stress in your life. You may turn down social engagements for fear of certain foods being present. When you do come in contact with these forbidden foods you may notice increased anxiety which can lead to binging or overeating. I will work with you to become comfortable eating a variety of food resulting in taking back the power from the food.
