Marie-Pier Pitre-D'Iorio


Struggling with your relationship with food and body is hard. I get it. It makes it difficult to enjoy your life the way you may want to as your brain is so preoccupied. It can start feeling impossible to let go of all the food rules and body image concern.

But it possible!  I utilize the Food, Body &  Mind Framework to support clients in healing their relationship with food and their body so they can live fully. 

 I strive to create a safe space for clients to land and where they can feel heard, understood and cared for. My approach is client-centered and collaborative and I believe you are the expert of you!

  • I love nature, especially water. I love to swim or just hangout by a lake. Water soothes and comforts me. I dream of one day having a cottage or lakehouse so I can be near water all the time!
  • I have a total 7 siblings! Which makes family dynamics at Christmas SO interesting :P!
  • I am an enthusiast dog mom. Odin is the sweetest boy, and loves to pop into virtual sessions to say hello!

More than just work

My practice is lived experience informed as well as evidence based. I have 2 degrees, one in Psychology and one in Nutrition Science. I have been working with clients for over 5 years and have supported hundreds of folks through recovery.
I am currently working towards becoming a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist.

Currently, Marie-Pier is not taking new 1:1 clients.

If you are looking for 1:1 support, Marie-Pier supervises the dietitian on the team. Click here to learn more about the dietitian team.

Alternatively,  Marie-Pier facilitates The Balanced Program. Get more information here.

The Balanced Practice has evolved to a team of registered dietitians and therapists on a mission to support folks in finding their perfect balance between food, body and mind. We believe that we cannot talk about food without addressing our mindset, beliefs and emotions. We work with our clients to help them walk away from diets, recover from their eating disorder and learn to reconnect to themselves  so they can live their fullest life.

Our approach is weight inclusive, sexuality & gender affirming, trauma-informed and anti diet culture. We firmly believe that health is not reserved for any body type and that your recovery is possible.

The Balanced Practice was created to fill the gap & INNOVATE THE WAY ED TREATMENT IS DONE. 

The Balanced Practice is a place where you can be seen for you are, supported without judgement and empowered with evidence based & Lived Experience informed personalized treatment. 

Because life is too short to struggle with your relationship with food & your body. 

The Balanced Practice was founded by Marie-Pier, who after struggling with an eating disorder, noticed a gap in our healthcare system. Through her recovery, she noticed that treatment was often not inclusive, non collaborative or client centered and often offered only short term support.
