Christie has specialized in disordered eating and eating disorders since 1995, beginning with a nationally renowned treatment center before founding her private practice. Her mission has been to work with individuals and families on their journey toward a balanced and fulfilling life with food, and to challenge the intense cultural and societal pressures around eating and bodies. She is passionate about teaching clients to eat intuitively and move joyfully.
Caggiani believes in a mindfulness-based, non-diet approach that allows her clients to identify, understand and move beyond their eating struggles, as they reconnect with their internal signals of hunger and satiety. She has been interested in Intuitive Eating since she first discovered the self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought.
Caggiani explains: “It is a weight-neutral model with a validated assessment scale and over 90 studies to date. The principles work by either cultivating or removing obstacles to body awareness, a process known as interoceptive awareness. Essentially, Intuitive Eating is a personal process of honoring health by listening and responding to the direct messages of the body in order to meet your physical and psychological needs.”
As a Nutrition Therapist, Caggiani speaks regularly to groups of children and adults, and counsels individuals in such areas as disordered eating, eating disorders, preventive nutrition, women’s health, and wellness. She works as part of a multi-disciplinary team, sharing clients with a variety of experienced psychotherapists and physicians in the area, so as to most comprehensively meet each individual’s needs.
