Are you looking for a different approach to care for ARFID and selective eating in San Diego?

You’ve come to the right place

Do you or your child have a small list of preferred foods and strong aversions to many others? Do you or your child feel overwhelmed when going out to eat and oftentimes avoid it? Is the idea of trying new foods stressful and unenjoyable?

If so, we are here to help! Our team of specialized Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are experts in the treatment of ARFID and selective eating in San Diego. We will support you and your family to expand food choices and learn how to try new foods in a variety of settings!

We Can Help:

  • All Ages - Children, Teens & Adults

  • ARFID: Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder

  • Selective Eating (Often coined "picky eating")

Our approach to ARFID includes:

  • Responsiveness

    Rather than starting with exposure work or forcing a child or adult to eat certain foods in certain ways, we take a deeper dive into the nuance of eating and feeding with you, the parent, at the center of the team.

  • Nervous System Support

    Our first step is supporting you and/or your family with establishing more calm and less chaos around food. We have many ways of introducing grounding techniques and reworking routines so that mealtimes have less anxiety and more connection. We utilize the STEPS+ approach.

  • Embracing Differences

    We understand and embrace the fact that each child has their own abilities and neurological tendencies that make them who they are. While we establish common goals of treatment we stay open to the fact that each child’s outcome to treatment will be just as unique as they are.

  • Parent Support

    A large part of our family feeding process rests in providing parents with the support and tools they need to feel calm and confident with feeding their child/family and having a safe place to discuss their challenges, concerns, stressors, etc…
