Professional statement

Liz Fayram is a registered dietitian and nutrition therapist specializing in eating disorders, non-diet approaches to wellness, transitions in eating, and making peace with food. Liz practices an Intuitive Eating® and Health At Every Size (HAES)® model to develop a supportive, out-of-the-box and sustainable nutrition path with her clients.

Liz discovered her passion for nutrition and wellness while cooking with her family, taking culinary courses, and participating in athletics. She believes that all foods can nourish the body when in balance, and has passionately dedicated her career to helping others find peace and enjoyment in their relationship with food.

Liz received her BS from Bastyr University's Didactic Program in Dietetics and has extensive experience with eating disorder patients at Cambridge Eating Disorder Center, Metrowest Nutrition, and Simmons College.

She brings enthusiasm, warmth, and evidence-based practice into the counseling process to help her clients heal.

Message to clients

As a nutritionist and a woman in this culture, I can empathize with the many people who have struggled with food and their body. It is a life mission of mine to help people reconnect and heal those hurts, and to help them grow those experiences into something they can honor their whole life.


Eating disorders / disordered eating - Nutrition therapy for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, exercise disorders; difficulty making change around food and body image ("feeling stuck"); working on social eating; meal exposures; grocery shopping; restructuring negative thoughts about food; emphasis on all foods fit.

Health At Every Size - Promoting a non-diet approach aiming to strengthen an individual's relationship to food by reducing the focus on weight and prioritizing wellness; encouraging balanced eating and maintaining respect for the natural diversity of body shapes and sizes

Non-diet approach to wellness - All bodies welcome model; minimizing black and white thinking about food (or "good" v. "bad" food way of thinking); promoting healthy self-care behaviors; eating foods from all food groups; going out to eat with friends; helping individuals who have tried other methods of wellness that have not worked for them (e.g. recovering from crash dieting)

Older adolescent, young adult, and adult nutrition - Managing a balance of nutrients through various life stages, from young adulthood to midlife

Professional endorsements

"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"

"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

Client testimonials

"I’ve worked with Liz Fayram for over 1.5 years and in that time she has helped me to grow and heal in ways I never thought were possible. I had been bulimic throughout college and came to Liz a few years later; though I had stopped purging by the time I saw Liz, many of the behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that I had during the time I was actively bulimic were still very present. From my first session with Liz, I have felt fully respected, cared for, and safe in her office. In sessions with Liz I have felt comfortable feeling emotions I often shy away from and I have shared and described vulnerabilities that I do not often expose. Liz has taught me so many practical tools that I use now in my everyday life, she has gently nudged me to expand my perspective and find new, positive meanings and experiences with food and body image, and she has supported me as I’ve enhanced my compassion for myself. I always leave Liz’s office feeling empowered, hopeful, and with increased self-love."

"Liz is amazing at her job. She is thoughtful, kind, and probing. She helps you understand yourself by making you answer a lot of your own questions while at the same time giving you the support you need to take whatever next steps you are ready to take without fear. Liz has helped me address so many of my issues, from my straight up confusion about what my body can and cannot handle eating to the emotional uneasiness I felt when being there for myself after a binge to those ever difficult questions about what I value and who I am. I look forward to our meetings and am so grateful for the work we do together!"
