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!

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.
Teens, Adults, Families & Couples
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.
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.
