Zuercher is a nationally sought-after expert in nutrition and eating disorders. Zuercher has been responsible for creating some of the country’s best-known eating disorder nutrition programs, with protocols benefiting hundreds of women. A graduate of Ohio State University, Zuercher has more than 15 years of experience in directing nutrition counseling and services, and reaching-out to the greater community as a speaker and nutrition resource. She has traveled extensively across North America presenting workshops to help educate professionals about treating eating disorders. Zuercher also has spoken extensively in the areas of nutrition intervention strategies and exposure with response prevention. With a primary approach that addresses the thoughts and feelings connected to one’s relationship with food and body, Zuercher challenges the distorted myths about food, teaching the science behind how the body works, and ways food can nourish both mind and body. These are integral parts of her counseling paradigm, helping clients redevelop and tap into their internal wisdom about eating through the process of intuitive eating.
